Eugene "Gene" Ascherien

Eugene "Gene" Ascherien, age 74, of Beaver Dam passed away on Sunday, June 25, 2017 will all his family surrounding him at UW Hospital in Madison.

Gene was born on October 5, 1943 in Beaver Dam to Richard and Hilda (Jeche) Ascherien. He was a member of St. Stephen's Ev. Lutheran Church in Beaver Dam. Gene married Sharon Duessler on June 18, 1966 at St. John's Ev. Lutheran Church in Juneau. They recently celebrated 51 years of marriage.

Gene worked at Schmid's Black Gold and later at Gene's Tires. His love for working on cars is how he got involved with racing. He built many race cars until his son Todd was able to race the cars he built. He was with Todd at the races every Saturday night. He also loved going up north with special friends Gail and Jerry Mayer where he would go hunting, fishing, and four-wheeling. They enjoyed going on many vacations together. Gene's grandchildren meant the world to him and he attended all of their basketball and baseball games, as well as Brady's R.C. racing. He passed his love of racing onto them and was a great father and father-in-law.

Gene is survived by his wife, Sharon; three children, Jodi (Dan) Johnson of Horicon, Shelly Ascherien of Beaver Dam, and Todd (Shelly) Ascherien of Beaver Dam; four grandsons, Cody Bobholz of Juneau, Brandon (Megan North) Bobholz of Beaver Dam, Justin (Aubrie Schultz) Bobholz of Beaver Dam, and Brady Eugene Ascherien of Beaver Dam; great grandson, Carter Bobholz of Beaver Dam; brother, Roger (Pat) Ascherien of Beaver Dam; sisters, Diane (John) Sromalski of Fond du Lac and Karen Horstmann of Waupun; sister-in-law, Doris Jeche of Beaver Dam; three brother-in-laws, Ronald Miller of Randolph, Dennis Duessler of Florida, and Robert (Fran) Duessler of Madison, as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

He is preceded in death by his parents; sister Nancy Miller; brother, Dennis Jeche, and in-laws, Clarence and Beulah Duessler, and other relatives.

Visitation for Gene will be held on Friday, June 30, 2017 at St. Stephen's Ev. Lutheran Church, 300 West St., Beaver Dam, from 3:00 p.m. until the time of the funeral service at 5:00 p.m. with Rev. Paul Stratman officiating. Burial will follow at Highland Memory Gardens, Town of Trenton.
