Death19 October 2017Terry D. Droessler died on 19 October 2017 at Wisconsin at age 64 Terry D. Droessler, 64, of Potosi, Wisconsin, sawed through the gates of heaven Thursday, October 19, 2017, at home surrounded by his loving family after a short courageous battle with lung cancer.

Terry was born on November 3, 1952, in Lancaster, Wisconsin, the son of Donald and Marie (Langkamp) Droessler. He married the love of his life, Marlene “Beanie” Gillen on June 17, 1972, at Immaculate Conception Church in Kieler, WI.

Terry was employed by John Deere for 30 years retiring in 2002. After his retirement, he went to work doing some of his true passions; logging, cutting firewood and spending time at his log cabin “paradise”. He was a lifelong avid hunter. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his kids and grandkids.
Words cannot express the sadness being felt by the loss of such a wonderful man and he will be truly missed by so many. One of his most famous sayings was “You’re going to miss me when I’m gone” and there is nothing more truthful than this.

Terry was a husband to Beanie, of Potosi; father to Jenni (Larry) Larson, of Sun Prairie, WI and Jessie (Ben) Gavinski, of Potosi; Papa to Jared Wunderlin, Brianna Gavinski, Zachary Larson, Brianna Larson and Mason Gavinski; a brother to Arleen (Fran) Ouderkirk, of Sherrill, IA, Gary (Deb) Droessler, of Potosi, and David Droessler, of Platteville; brother-in-law to Jug (Pam) Gillen, of Kieler, Sitsy (late, Larry) Koeller, of Kieler, Sandy (Clete) Jerrett, of Lancaster, John (Linda) Gillen, of Dubuque, IA and Vicki (fiancé, Joe) Haverland, of Hazel Green. He is further survived by several family and friends and a special, life-long best friend, Tom Droessler.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Marie; two brothers, Wayne and Merlin; and his father and mother-in-law, Cracker and Edna Gillen.

The family would like to extend a special to thank Dr. Wagner and Dr. Hermann and their staff; the exceptional nurses and staff of Finley Hospital; Hospice of Dubuque; and the many family members and friends for their amazing care, compassion and support.
