  • Note: Grandpa Larry
    He was born September 15, 1934 in Litchfield, Minnesota. His full name is Lawrence Ebner Wegner Jr.. His parents are Lawrence Joseph Wegner Sr. and Ester Ann Eis. He graduated from Mishicot High School in 1952. Grandpa served his country in the United States Navy as Machinist Mate First Class, stationed aboard the USS Mitscher in Boston, MA. On July 23, 1955 Grandpa married Dorothy Lorraine Bilodeau. They had five children; Deborah Ann Wegner, Elizabeth Marie Wegner, Michelle Marie Wegner, Audrey Jean Wegner, and Alison Catherine Wegner. Grandpa went into business with his Dad, brother Jim and sister Barbara. Wegner and Sons Inc. was a business that sold and fixed John Deere tractors. They sold the business in 1994 and retired. Grandpa was very handy and was licensed in plumbing, electrical, and heating and cooling. Grandpa had a stroke that killed him on February 19th 2010.
    My Grandpa used to tell us stories about when he was a boy living in Mishicot. During the winter months there was a pond that everyone would gather to and go ice skating. Grandpa swore he was the fastest on skates and no one could ever catch him. When Grandpa was in High School he was helping his Uncle Frank in a field and was ran over by the huge tractor. He was in the ICU for months, all the bones on his right side broke or cracked from his feet to his jaw. Although he pulled through and healed for the most part, he couldn't play football anymore. He was sad because he loved playing football, so he did the next best thing and became a cheerleader. I'm told Grandpa always took the best from a worst situation.
