Michael F. Schroeder, 57, of Wausaukee, passed away Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018 at Florence Health Service, due to complications from Glioblastoma.
Born Feb. 28, 1961 in Marinette, to the late Vernon and Martha (Frabel) Schroeder, he grew up on a family farm and graduated from Wausaukee High School in 1980. After graduation he worked at local farms and the Crivitz Feed Mill then at DeLaet Enterprises of Wausaukee for 25 plus years as their shop mechanic, equipment hauler and dump truck driver.
He enjoyed hunting, fishing, racing and was a member of the Wausaukee Fire Department for many years. He had a passion for collecting guns and never passed up a good deal on flashlights.
