  • Lester L. Kieler was born on 12 February 1922 at Wisconsin.
  • He was the son of Arthur John Kieler and Elizabeth Dora Loeffelholz.
  • Lester L. Kieler married Shirley Mae McCauley, daughter of Leonard McCauley and Dorothy Collins, on 25 October 1949.
  • Lester L. Kieler died on 8 September 2005 at age 83 Lester Kieler, age 83, of Dickeyville, died on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2005, at Southwest Health Center Nursing Home in Cuba City. Lester grew up in the depression, growing up early and learning self-reliance. He used that attribute in World War II, hand crafting jewelry from silver in the South Pacific and sending every extra pound he made, back to his mother in Kieler. Lester knew what he wanted, to provide and he did unselfishly for his mother, himself and eventually his own family. His ambition, along with the money he saved, led him to create his own business, Kowalski-Kieler Inc., with his brother-in-law, Donald Kowalski, in 1946. After marrying his sweetheart, Shirley, they began their family and his adventurous nature took over. They would take their children on several memory filled trips. Of all the places they traveled, none was more loved than Lester's favorite place in the world, Danbury. His instigating ways, ability to tell some stories and pull pranks always kept everyone thinking and laughing. His creativity and wit was not only in his humor, it was also evident in his ability to rebuild a car from scratch (welding like a true craftsman), making sausage and canning tomatoes from his well loved garden. He knew he wanted to serve in World War II and he certainly did. He would share the good stories from that era. The favorite was chauffeuring John Wayne and General MacArthur. He continued his want to serve as an active member of the VFW and an assistant fire chief for the fire department, as well as helping his sons in the Boy Scouts. Lester always seemed to quietly know what he wanted. He was a modest man and never boasted. His love for his family was always there with a warm smile and a "ho ho there, come sit on grandpa's lap"; he just loved his grandchildren. He was always cheerful, never complained, he was always "100 percent." He loved his family, he loved his life, and since Jan. 23, 2005, he knew what he wanted again, and that was Shirley. He attained that on Sept. 8, 2005; a true love everlasting being with her face to face, and calling her "Snooks" once again. Lester is survived by two daughters, Lois (Dave) Fritz of Potosi, and Jenny (Greg) Loyda of Whitefish Bay; four sons, Jack (Lois) Kieler, Timothy (Shari) Kieler, Dennis (Cheryl) Kieler, all of Dickeyville, and Dean (Carie) Kieler of Lake Mills; grandchildren, Dr. Nathanial (Margaret) Kieler, Tyler Kieler, Shane Kieler, Chase Kieler, Paige Kieler, Emily Fritz, Maddie Fritz, Rachael Fritz, Timmy Fritz, Michael Loyda, Casey Loyda, Samantha Loyda, Kevin Kieler, Audreyann Kieler, Meghan Taylor, Travis (Kelly) Kieler, Shawn (Larry) Rogutich, and Josh Kieler, U.S. Navy; four great-grandchildren, Dylan, Payton, Ivan and Nadia; a great-grandson, soon to be born; three sisters, Mrs. Irene (Donald) Kowalski of Cassville, Mrs. Orpha (Francis) Kieler of Hazel Green, and Sister Genesia Ginter of Milwaukee; and a brother, Artie (Katie) Kieler of Hazel Green. He was preceded in death by his wife, Shirley, in 2005; a son, Lester "Les" Kieler, in 1998; his parents; a daughter-in-law, Joan Kieler; and a brother, Gene Ginter.

    Arthur was born on February 20, 1927, the son of Arthur C. and Elizabeth (Loeffelholz) Kieler, on his father’s dairy farm in Paris Township two miles northwest of Kieler. He married Kathleen “Katie” Havertape on September 4, 1947 at St. Joseph's Church in Sinsinawa, WI. They farmed all their lives until their retirement from farming in 1986. They moved to 1535 Fredrick Street, rural Hazel Green, Wisconsin, in the Pascal Skemp Subdivision near Bluff Road. Arthur was an outstanding crop farmer who raised corn, alfalfa, oats and wheat. He was a progressive dairy farmer who made continuous improvements to enhance the production of milk from his dairy herd.

    Arthur was a “steward” of the land. He worked with the Conservation Commission to improve water erosion by building dams, grassy waterways and detention ponds. Arthur was also named the outstanding “Soil Conservationist” in 1976 for Grant County, Wisconsin. He was a frontrunner in establishing contour (strip) farming in Grant County. When Arthur moved to rural Hazel Green, he became a master gardener, planted fruit and pine trees, made wine, and built numerous purple martin houses. He enjoyed working outdoors, especially in his garden and orchard. Arthur referred to his place along the river as “heaven.” Arthur enjoyed fishing from the “barge”, and his view of the Mississippi River and Lock & Dam. Additionally, Arthur enjoyed the large variety of ducks, geese, bald eagles and all the other wildlife that inhabited the Mississippi River. Other favorite activities were trips to Door County, ice fishing, snagging salmon, and fishing from chartered boats for lake trout. He enjoyed deer hunting and made many deer hunting trips to Black River Falls, Wisconsin. Arthur was the best dad in the world and was loved dearly by his family.
