Tanner ‘Tan Man’ Juenger

April 16, 1998 – Nov. 5, 2010

Tanner "Tan Man" Juenger earned his wings Friday, Nov. 5, 2010, at the age of 12.

He was the loving son of Kathy and Dan Juenger; dear brother of Tyler, Connor and Colin; grandson of Lee and Carol Juenger, Richard and Mary Hoppe; nephew of David Juenger, Mike (Jenny) Hoppe, Nancy Hoppe and Stephani Smith; and cousin of Kelly and Casey Hoppe. He is further survived by many relatives and friends.

Tanner always lived every day with his family and friends’ best interests in his heart and always thought about everyone before himself. He had an infectious smile that he was known for. He was his brothers’ No. 1 fan in all of their sporting activities and a huge supporter to any concession stand he came across. He was truly loved by all who came in contact with him. Although he battled through life with a bad heart, he had the biggest heart of all!

Visitation will be held from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 11, at St. Charles Catholic Church, 313 Circle Drive, Hartland. A Mass of Christian burial to follow at 6 p.m. A private interment will be held.

Tanner’s family would like to thank the entire staff on West 3 for taking such good care of him. The dedication his doctors and nurses showed was incredible. Special thanks to Dr. Stuart Berger for the love and care he always had for Tanner throughout his 12 years. He loved you!
