Larry Duane Habeck, 66, of Grand Chute, passed away on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, at his home surrounded by his family following a lengthy battle with T-cell Lymphoma. He was born Nov. 14, 1950, to the late Ruben and Charlotte Habeck of Nichols. He married his first love, Susan (Elliott), July 21, 1973, spending 44 happy years together.

He went on to attend NWTC and FVTC receiving degrees in architectural and mechanical design. He worked for Kimberly Clark as an Engineer Specialist for 33 years and retired in 2006. Larry enjoyed just about anything to do with the outdoors. An avid deer hunter, spending many seasons enjoying the camaraderie of family and friends. He also spent many hours tinkering around the house working on various projects, traveling, garage sale shopping, reading and photography but most of all spending time with his family especially his grandson, Zander.
