David "Shooter" Lasecki January 16, 1952 — Sep 6, 2023 Appleton
David John Lasecki, age 71 of Appleton, WI joined his heavenly kingdom on September 6, 2023. He was born to Ezra and Anna Marie (Oudenhoven) Lasecki on January 16, 1952. David graduated from Seymour High School with the class of ’70 and later went on to receive a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin Green Bay. He became a respiratory practitioner, working with ThedaCare Regional Medical Center in Appleton, formerly Appleton Medical Center.

David was a true outdoorsman – an adventure seeker – spending as much time as he could in the deep woods hunting, fishing, camping, and downhill skiing. He also enjoyed gardening, growing vegetables and herbs to make the great food he so loved. David was an incredibly intelligent man, always learning and researching new subjects, taking apart and repairing everything, and outwitting everyone in a game of chess. He even went as far as to memorize every card and answer in the expert version of Trivial Pursuit. You could often find him tinkering with his ’05 Chevy Silverado and ’71 Mustang Mach 1, maintaining their outer and inner workings. More than anything, though, David was incredibly proud of his family and loved spending as much time as he could with his kids, grandkids, and siblings.

David is preceded in death by his parents, Ezra and Anna Marie; his grandchildren, Alexis and Monica; and his nephews, Chase and Jeff.

David is survived by his children, Heather and Paul; his grandchildren, Jaydon, Ethan, Kiara, and Piper; his siblings, Rose Ann Henn, Carol (Robert) Rehfeldt, Steven (Linda) Lasecki, and Doris (Robert) Koslowski; his best friends, Tom and Dan; as well as many nieces, nephews, and other extended relatives.

A funeral visitation will be held for David on Monday, September 18, 2023 from 1-3 PM at Wichmann Funeral Home – Tri-County Chapel, 1592 Oneida St, Menasha, WI 54952 with a funeral service to follow at 3 PM. David will be laid to rest at Riverside Cemetery in Appleton, WI at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund is being established for David.

David’s family would like to thank the staff at ThedaCare Regional Medical Center in Appleton (especially the ones David knew personally) for the care and compassion they provided for David during his time there.

Sharon A. Vander Velden Nov 15, 1955 — Sep 6, 2023 Kimberly
Sharon “Sharry” A. Vander Velden went to be with her Heavenly Father on September 6, 2023, at home after being diagnosed with COPD.

Sharry was born November 15, 1955, to Jacob and Florence Lamers. She grew up with loving parents, eight siblings who she adored and graduated from Kimberly High School. Her greatest joy was her family and being a homemaker while watching her three boys grow up. She later found great pleasure and purpose in her work at the local homeless shelter and enjoying time with her grandchildren.

The beauty of nature always brought her peace, and she loved gardening and being outdoors. She especially loved going for rides in the fall to see the leaves change colors. One of her favorite seasonal traditions was seeing her grandchildren’s Halloween costumes each year. Early on, Sharry looked forward to vacations at Robert’s Lake, fishing and enjoying time with friends and family there. Her enthusiasm for cooking for loved ones inspired her to create many delicious family recipes.

Sharry is survived by her sons Jake (Bre) Vander Velden, Clayton (Sara) Vander Velden, and Ross Vander Velden; along with her grandchildren, Collin, Alec, Leo, Aven, Livie, and Ellie. She is also survived by her siblings Judy (Dennis) Schumacher, Diane (Pat) Piette, Al (Debbie) Lamers, Chris (Jean) Lamers, Tracey (Denise Kander) Lamers, and sisters in law Nancy Oast-Lamers, and Mary Lamers. There are also many other relatives and dear friends.

Sharry was preceded in death by her parents, Jacob, and Florence Lamers, brothers Mike Lamers, Jim Lamers, and Ralph (Sam) Lamers, as well as Jim Vander Velden, the father of Sharry’s kids.

She loved her family dearly and they were everything to her. She thought about them often, and they were always in her heart. She cherished her boys, grandchildren, and siblings. She enjoyed spending time with them when she was able. She knew she was loved, and we knew she loved us whole-heartedly too.

Sharry leaves a legacy of love and compassion. She taught us to love people where they are at with acceptance and free of judgement. We take comfort in knowing Sharry is at peace with Jesus her lord and Savior in heaven. We will always cherish the memories we have had throughout the years.

Visitation will be from 2:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Friday, September 15, 2023, at Jansen Fargo Funeral Home, located at 204 East Kimberly Avenue in Kimberly. The celebration of life service will begin at 4:00 PM with a fellowship to follow. Pastor John Slotten will be presiding.

In lieu of flowers a memorial fund has been established in Sharry’s honor.
