Gary L. Krumenauer, Chippewa Falls…  age 72, died peacefully at his home under the care of St. Joseph’s Hospice on Friday, January 20, 2023.

Gary’s pastime passions were showing cattle, restoring tractors, and building hot rods. He and his daughter Emily traveled each year to Denver, Colorado, to show their award-winning Highland beef cattle. Over the years, they proudly won more blue ribbons than anyone else ever achieved! Gary also loved searching for old cars to buy, his most recent project was a 1956 Chevy Bel Air. Other pastimes that Gary enjoyed included hunting, fishing and farming. He loved the outdoors, exploring the woods, landscaping conservation projects, and traveling.

Memorials in Gary’s honor may be designated to NextGen ALS who is dedicated to finding a cure for genetic ALS or the ALS Foundation for research and in hopes of one day finding a cure. Gary had ALS, but ALS didn’t have Gary.
