Alois A. “Ole” Kirschbaum, 88, of Prairie du Chien, earned his heavenly wings on Sunday, July 10, 2022, at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse, surrounded by his loved ones. 

He was born in Cassville, on Nov. 3, 1933, to Marie (Ackerman) and Adam Kirschbaum. After serving his country for two years in the U.S. Army, he married Mona Meyers on March 2, 1957. Mona preceded him in death on Oct. 12, 2007. Al was blessed to have found love a second time in his life with Vivian Achenbach, who he cherished and loved with his whole heart. He found great joy in cheering on his beloved Green Bay Packers and Badgers, playing cards, listening to music, traveling, farming, and spending time with his family and friends. Al was involved in many careers over the years such as: working for the railroad, farming, welder, bar owner, and a boilermaker for Local # 107. He will be remembered for his funny wit, the twinkle in his bright blue eyes and his adorable dimples. 

Al is survived by his five children, Sandra (Harry) Mumm, Dodgeville, Randy (Gina) Kirschbaum, Bettendorf, Iowa, Larry (Julie) Kirschbaum, Dubuque, Iowa, Mike (Kim) Kirschbaum, Branson, Mo., Curtis (Patty) Kirschbaum, Kieler; 10 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; along with many nieces and nephews; four sisters-in-law, Mary Alice Crubel, Barb Krohn, Mertz Esser, Barb Meyers; and special friend, Vivian Achenbach.

Al was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Mona; two sisters-in-law; eight brothers-in-law; two sisters, LaVon Schurman and Terri Williams; and two grandchildren.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held on Friday, July 15, at St. Charles Catholic Church in Cassville with Father John Meinholz officiating.

In lieu of plants and flowers, donations may be made to the Alois Kirschbaum Memorial Fund, Martin Schwartz Funeral Home and Crematory, P.O. Box 30, Lancaster, WI 53813.
