    It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our beloved husband, son, father, brother and friend, Ken Eslinger, on October 28, 2015. Ken passed away due to complications from infections. Unfortunately the conventional health care system failed him - big time. He was born on March 2, 1963, son of James and Louella (Lom) Eslinger. Ken graduated from Kimbelry High School, and then went on to work at Warehouse Specialists as a lead man. He took great pride in running and operating the Combined Locks warehouse. On September 30, 1989, he married the love of his life, Sara Miller.

    Ken was an active member of the Fox Valley Snow Riders snowmobile club, bowling and horseshoe leagues. He was an avid NASCAR and Packers fan, and enjoyed running the pools and keeping states for leagues. Ken loved riding his motorcycle and snowmobile, and working on old cars, or anything with an engine. He was the organizer for family events, and was also the photographer, always taking the pictures. He enjoyed camping with his family and spending time with his precious pets, Emma and Blackie. Playing a hand or two of cards was also a favorite.

    Ken is survived by his wife of 26 years, Sara; his son, Kyle (Monica) Eslinger, and his first grandbaby on the way; a daughter, Karina; his mother, Lou Saurbier; step father, Jerry Saurbier; siblings: Jim (Lori), Rick, Sheri (Bonnie Konen), Jerry Jr. (Carrie) Saurbier; father and mother-in-law, Ron and Laverne Miller; brothers and sisters-in-law: Kim (Bob) Derks, Randy (Bridget) Miller, Gary (Lori) Miller, Karla (Bill) Flynn, Bruce Yaeger (special friend Jody), Sally (Joe) Jaskolski; special aunts and uncles: Faith (Ron) Sanderfoot, Kathy (Mike) Palm, Butch (Donna) Lom; very special friends: Todd (Lee Ann) Bruyette and Pearl (Teri Heenan) Dietzen; and many other nieces, nephews, other family members and friends.

    Ken was preceded in death by his father, James Eslinger; a brother, Tom Eslinger; sister-in-law, Mary (Miller) Yaeger and a close friend, Jim Lutz.

    Memorial services will be at 12:00 noon on Saturday, November 7, 2015, at St. John Nepomucene Catholic Chuch, 323 S. Pine Street, Little Chute, with Fr. Ron Belitz officiating.

For online condolences, please visit www.verkuilenfh.com.

    Sara and her children would like to thank their families, friends, co-workers and clergy for their love, care, support and prayers during this difficult time. They would especially like to thank Dr. Brown for her never-ending concern and compassion to help and care for Ken on his journey. They truly had a special connection. She was a wonderful doctor and friend to Ken.

    Ken, you were the best dad, husband, brother, son and friend anyone could have asked for. You always had a smile on your face even when times were tough. You would help anyone in need at any time, day or night. You were such a good person and will truly be missed by so many. Yeah, God took another good one! We will always love and miss you! Love you always and forever, Ra (Sara.)
