Larry Kolton

July 2, 1947 — November 6, 2023

Schofield

 

Larry Lester Kolton, a devoted husband, dedicated worker, and proud veteran, peacefully passed away on November 6, 2023, at his residence in Schofield, WI. Born on July 2, 1947, in Wausau, WI, Larry lived a life filled with compassion, hard work, and cherished moments with his loved ones. He was 76 years old at the time of his passing.

 

Larry was a proud graduate of D.C. Everest Sr. High School, receiving his diploma in 1965.  Before he embarked on a successful career as a General Laborer in the paper mill industry, Larry was a meat cutter for nearly 30 years, working at Heath Brothers and IGA grocery stores. Known for his strong work ethic and unwavering determination, he made a significant contribution to his field and was respected by his colleagues.

 

Larry selflessly served his country from 1966 – 1969, he was stationed in Germany during the Vietnam War as a member of the Army. He dedicated three years of his life to protect the freedoms that we hold dear. His bravery and commitment to serving his nation will never be forgotten.

 

Outside of work and service, Larry found joy in the simple pleasures of life. He enjoyed spending time at his cherished cottage on Little Pappoose Lake, where he found solace in nature and created beautiful memories with his loved ones.  He very much enjoyed fishing, hunting and preferred to spend his time outside.  Larry had a deep love for sports, anything from football to baseball; he supported his local sports the most, favoring D.C. Everest and Mosinee teams as well as all Wisconsin teams.   

 

Larry Kolton is survived by his loving wife, Carolyn Kolton; his children, Chris Kolton, and Jesse (Molly) Kolton; grandchildren, Abigail Kolton, Kyle Kolton, and Olivia Kolton-Everson; nieces and nephews, Sheila (Garrick) DeMeyer, Michelle (Logan) Mackay, and Michael (Megan) Kolton; as well as great-nieces and great-nephews, Isabella, Emma, Ali, Lainey, Max, and Audrey; and sister in law, Pat Kolton.    

 

He is preceded in death by his parents, Casimer and Mary (Wesolowski) Kolton; his brother, Ronald "Ronnie" Kolton; sister in law, Sharon Kolton.
