Michael A. Liebe, 83

After a long and fulfilling life, Michael A Liebe, 83, passed away peacefully at home with his loving wife at his side.

Son of Michael, Sr., and Charlotte Liebe,  Mike was born on September 28, 1936, in Stevens Point.  He attended P.J. Jacobs High School. 

Mike was known for his quick wit, fixing/building things, and his ability to motivate others to strive to be the best they can be.  He also became a fabulous chef, sharing two amazing BBQ sauces that he worked to perfect.

He married Lucille (Luci) Niemczyk, May 1, 1981.  There were married for 39 years, blending seven children, creating one family.

Mike worked for Vetter Manufacturing until he took a position as Vice President/National Sales Mgr. for Lincoln Wood Products, Merrill, Wis.  He retired in 2000. 

Being that he wasn’t the kind of person to sit idle, he started volunteering for Meals on Wheels and Operation Bootstrap that same year, where he was later asked to be on the Board of Directors. Along with ushering at Holy Spirit/St. Stan’s Church, he assisted with church picnics and the fall festival. He also enjoyed fishing, golfing, and spending time with his family.

Mike is preceded in death by his parents, Michael Sr. and Charlotte, his daughter, Lori Wachter, siblings: Elizabeth Platta, Elaine Charpin/Rinka, Victor Liebe, and James Liebe.
