Lawrence E. Hoppe

August 25, 1931 — March 4, 2023

Lawrence E. Hoppe, age 91 of Oshkosh, passed away peacefully, with family by his side at Aurora Medical Center on Saturday, March 4, 2023. He was born August 25, 1931 to the late Edward and Myrtle (Clark) Hoppe in Oshkosh. Lawrence married Delores (Kluender) on October 15, 1960 in Oshkosh. Their marriage was blessed with three children, Julie, Sheila and Greg.


Throughout his childhood, he farmed with his family in Omro, WI. As a young adult he enjoyed roller skating where he met his bride to be on a blind date. He also bowled with friends on bowling leagues and a couple’s league with his wife. Lawrence was a member of Iron Workers Local 8, worked for Griese & Ross and retired in 1993. Following retirement, his love for antique tractors became his fulltime hobby which led him to become a member of the Pickett Steam and Gas Engine Club. He also enjoyed creating lifelong memories with his family. He was a faithful member of Martin Luther Evangelical Lutheran Church.


Lawrence is lovingly survived by his wife, Delores; children, Julie (Jeff) Leichtfuss, Sheila Franzen and Greg (Kara) Hoppe; grandchildren, Jason Leichtfuss, Jennifer Krueger, Jamie (Cullen) Raasch, Jessica (Chris) Lee, Ashley Franzen (Kevin Garza), Corey Franzen and Lizzie Hoppe; great grandchildren, Ethan, Kaden, Jaxson, Ava, Ella, Hudson, Mason, Charlotte and Brynlee; sister, Carole (Don) Wissink; sisters-in-law, Lucille and Frankie Hoppe. He is further survived by many nieces, nephews, and in-laws.


In addition to his parents, Lawrence was preceded in death by his brothers, Howard, Gaylord (Rita), Richard and Kenneth Hoppe.

Visitation at the church will be held from 10:00 AM until the time of the service. Following the service, interment will take place at Lake View Memorial Park located at 2786 Algoma Blvd, Oshkosh.
