Luke Thomas Moder

August 4, 1947 — February 3, 2015

Luke Thomas Moder, 67, passed away unexpectedly Tuesday morning. He was born on August 4, 1947 to Robert Moder and Josephine Luben. Luke was a proud veteran having served in the US Army from 1964 until 1968. On June 6, 1970 he married Sue Ebenhoe in Appleton. Luke loved the outdoors, fishing, hunting, watching the birds in his front yard, and, this winter watching the squirrels. He retired from Appleton Papers in 2009 after more than 40 years there. He also worked for Lawrence University many years painting, renovating and detailing the Victorian homes on campus. Most importantly he enjoyed fishing with his six grandkids. He loved cuddling with them and always had his wallet handy to show off their pictures.

Luke will be lovingly missed by his wife, Sue, three children; Stacey (Craig) Trautsch, Sun Prairie, Chad (Lori) Moder, Appleton, Todd Moder, Appleton, six grandchildren; Hannah, Maggie, Adam, and Alex Trautsch, Collin and Allison Moder, brothers and sisters; John (Betsy) Moder, Linda Stadler, Ed (Julia) Luben, Patty Firkus, a sister-in-law Kathie (Steve) Milhaupt, and his step mother, Laverne Moder, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Luke was preceded in death by his parents, his step father Edward Luben, sisters, Sharon and Cynthia and a sister-in-law Jan Moder.
