Obituary

Alfred George Schlesser, 89, of Arcadia, died on Wednesday, November 3, 2021, at Gundersen Tri- County Hospital in Whitehall.
Alfred was born on August 29, 1932, at St. Ann's Hospital in La Crosse, WI to George and Cordelia (Rebhahn) Schlesser. He graduated from Arcadia High School and continued farming the land that he grew up on. He was united in marriage to Margaret Grulkowski on July 9, 1966, at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Winona. Together the couple dairy farmed side by side in Glencoe, where Alfred also enjoyed to hunt, trap and fish. Alfred was devoted to his faith, family and farm, and loved the special bond that he developed with his grandchildren, Hanna and Ty. It was truly a memorable gift for Alfred to be able to spend his final days in the house that he grew up in watching the truck loads of crops reaped in the fall harvest. The lessons in life and farming will forever be carried on by his children and grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, in 2019; infant daughter: Jennifer Ann; and sister: Lorraine Clark.
