    Foegen, Paul A.


    Paul A. Foegen, 73, Appleton, passed away at home surrounded by his loving family, after a three-year battle with cancer. He was born in Appleton, on Oct. 12, 1936, the son of the late Roman and Gertrude Foegen. Paul grew up and graduated from Kaukauna High School in 1954. He married the love of his life, Mary Kneip, in 1957. They made their home from then on in Appleton. Paul was employed by J.J. Plank Corporation for 39 years until his retirement in 1997.

    Paul was a member of St. Bernadette Catholic Church. His passion was fishing, hunting and anything to do with being in nature. He was a craftsman who could build and fix anything. Paul's pride was building his dream log cabin in the northwoods and spending as much time as possible there stoking the wood fire.

    Paul is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Mary; his sons and their families, Ken (Kelly) Foegen, Appleton; Keith Foegen, Appleton; Patrick (Nancy) Foegen, Appleton; and four grandchildren, Paul, Lauren, Neil and Max.

    A Funeral Liturgy will be held at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, March 2, 2010, at ST. BERNADETTE CATHOLIC CHURCH, 2331 E. Lourdes Drive, Appleton, with Fr. Don Zuleger officiating. Friends will be received at the church from 3 p.m. until the time of Mass.

    Paul's family wishes to extend a sincere thank you to all the staff at Affinity Hospice for all their care and support for Paul.

    In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in Paul's name.
