Carlton R. Euller

 

Feb. 9, 1924 - Jan. 4, 2013

 

 

Carlton R. Euller was born in Buffalo, N.Y., on Feb. 9, 1924, and died Friday, Jan. 4, 2013, at home in Adams.

 

He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Ruth; his faithful canine companion, Jenny; and five children, Kurt and Sue Euller of Sparta, Lynne and Steve Reich of Delafield, Steven Euller and Nancy Roehr of Minneapolis, Minn., Karen Euller of Lake Oswego, Ore., and Evelyn Euller of Rochester, Minn. Carl also had 13 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.

 

Carl was a World War II veteran. He worked in the insurance industry in Buffalo and the Milwaukee and Beloit areas until he retired in 1982 when he and Ruth moved to Adams. He was an avid outdoorsman, enjoyed trout fishing and hunting on his property, was an oil painter of portraits and Wisconsin’s natural beauty, and was interested in a variety of gardening and other horticultural activities.

 

As Carl wished, a private family gathering will take place. No public service is planned.  In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Adams County Public Library, where Carl was a past board member and loyal patron.

 

Roseberry’s Funeral Home, 608-339-3551, is serving the family. Visit online at www.roseberrys.com.
