Jeffrey E. Lammers, 63, passed away Sunday, September 25, 2016 after a short and hard fight with cancer at Cherry Meadows Hospice in Appleton, Wisconsin. He was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on October 12, 1952, to William and Joanne (Laack) Lammers. Jeff graduated from Plymouth High School in 1970 and Lakeland University in 1974. While attending School, he became Credit Manager for Sargento Cheese Company where he found his passion – Business. From there he transferred to Duralam, Inc. in Appleton where he oversaw the Accounting Department. After an acquisition in 2001 by Bemis Company, Inc., he found great fulfillment developing strategic plans and successfully leading his Global Procurement Team.
Although his life ended sooner than expected, Jeff had a gift of living each day to its fullest. He was a level-headed, kind, and practical man who had a large impact on many people's lives, both in business and in his personal life. In his free time he was happy boating with his family on Lake Michigan during the summer months and downhill skiing with friends in the winter.
