Lawrence “Larry” C. Kugler Jr; 69, entered eternal life wrapped in the
loving arms of our Savior Jesus Christ the Lord. The world lost a kind, funny and witty man to Multiple Sclerosis. He was born September 6, 1941 in Appleton, son of the late, Lawrence Sr and Dorothy (Ulmen) Kugler.
Larry started work at the Appleton Post Crescent as a young man,
worked there his entire life and retired from there. He was a member
of St. Bernadette Catholic Church in Appleton. When he was able, Larry

family and friends.
