Neldner, Lawrence “Larry”


Passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 6th, 2021 at the age of 64.  Beloved husband of Donna (nee Stinson).  Loving father of Michelle (Neil) Goertz, Marc (Felicia), and Michael (Andrea).  Proud grandpa of Makayla, Jericho, Liam, and Desmond.  Dear son of Dorothy and the late Emil Neldner.  Also survived by many other relatives and friends.

Visitation will be held on Friday, November 12th, at HERITAGE FUNERAL HOME, 9200 S. 27th St., from 11:30am – 1:30pm.  Masonic funeral service to follow at 1:30pm.  Interment Forest Hill Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the National Kidney Foundation of Wisconsin appreciated.

Larry was a master machinist, mini-inventor, and a fixer of all things.  Those skills suited him in his 39 year career at Oak Creek Power Plant.  His other interests ranged from growing orchids to being “bird-dad” to his two pink cockatoos, and a warm lap for his two dachshunds.

He loved the outdoors, especially tending campfires and spent many years as an Assistant Scout Master for Troop 316.  He is a proud 40-year Brother and Twice Past Master of the brethren of South Shore Masonic Lodge #3 Free & Accepted Masons.

    Larry was a wonder brother-in-law.
    You’ve left me with so many great memories !
    Our vacations with you and Donna in Key West, and Orlando . I’ll never forget how happy I was to have you and Donna along with Mark for my very 1st flight!! I was terrified of flying and it helped me so much to have the sense of security, with you and Donna along. We went to Disney World together and I enjoyed it so much!
    You were also a GREAT grill master. You loved to cook , and you were always preparing the meat for the holiday dinners .
    There are just so many memories you left me with!! I’ll never forget all of the great times Mark and I shared with you!!
    Rest in Paradise,
