Carl Henry Krause, 84, Oneida, passed away peacefully on Sunday, May 29, 2022, with his family at his side. He was born December 18, 1937, to the late Henry and Anita (Hoefs) Krause. Carl attended Seymour Schools until his father died when Carl was in 9th grade; he then ran the family farm. On October 15, 1960, Carl was united in marriage to "his sweetie," Joyce Johnson, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Green Bay.
He hauled milk in his earlier years. Carl later drilled wells for Malcolm Veitch, and he later worked for Seymour Transfer. He ended his career with Overnite Transportation until his retirement in 2003.
Carl enjoyed bowling, Polka Dancing with his sweetie, and feeding the birds. He was an avid Packers fan, and he liked watching Westerns. Carl also cherished the time he spent camping with his family. He was very handy and spent a lot of time tinkering with projects and cars. Carl had a soft spot for his "fur babies" Goldie, Buffy, Mollie, Mya, and Kahlua.
