Carl Murrel Londowski

February 22, 1946 — April 16, 2024

Oshkosh

Carl M. Londowski, 78, passed away at Theda Clark Hospital on April 16, 2024, surrounded by family.

He was born in Berwyn, IL, and moved to the Fox Valley in his early years.  He graduated from Winneconne High School, class of 1964 where he was fondly known as “Hummer” for the motorcycle he drove to school.

 Carl signed on with the US Navy serving two years active duty 1967-69 including two tours of duty in Vietnam as well as his years in the Navy Reserves.  He served as a Machinist Mate on the USS Chara, a recommissioned WWII ammunitions ship.  It was very meaningful to Carl that his three daughters were chosen to lay wreaths at the cemetery monument during Memorial Day Parades where they resided in Winneconne.

 Carl was employed by Medalist Industries for 25 years mentoring many in machining and assembly skills as a supervisor.  He then spent several years in management at FWD, Clintonville, before establishing a successful machine shop business in Oshkosh from which he retired.

 He was a true outdoorsman with many hobbies over the years including hunting, fishing, sturgeon spearing, trapping, numerous Canadian canoe trips, and taxidermy.  He hosted many deer and bear hunts with his buddies at his Price County trailer.  A special trip was with his good buddy, Mike Chappa, a Canadian fly-in moose hunt.

 Carl had a great love of travel, especially to National Parks, and loved to plan lengthy trips around the country with Lisa in their Airstream travel trailer.  But his favorite trips turned out to be just miles away from home camping in the Airstream with the five grandchildren.

 Carl is survived by his wife of 28 years, Lisa; his daughters Jennifer (Jim) McAloon & Erin (Greg) Riesenweber; son-in-law Marty Hamm.  Carl considered his sons-in-law as the sons he never had. Grandchildren Ava, Oliver, and Henry McAloon, and Courtney and Caycee Riesenweber.  Sisters Paula (Jim) Vaughan and Diane (Jeff) Groff; niece Tammy (Patrick) Burskey; nephew Matthew (Angie) Vaughan.  Further survived by Mother-in-law Pat Geffers.   Sisters-in-law Bonnie (David) Dahlke; Karen (John) Wallace.  His Geffers brother-and sister-in-laws Greg, Matthew (Mary), Brad (Linda), John (Beth) Paul (Jenni), and Peter (Amy) and numerous nieces and nephews.

 He is preceded in death by his parents Paul and Maxine Londowski; father-in-law Kenneth Geffers; Sherri Wichman, former wife and mother of his children; and his daughter Amy Hamm.

 The family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Theda Clark Neuro nurses and staff for going above and beyond to not only provide compassionate  care for Carl but also accommodating our family.
