Raymond C. Breaker, ag 93, of Larsen, passed away on Friday, August 21, 2020. He was born in Neenah on July 30, 1927, son of the late Rueben and Nora (Christianson) Breaker. 

Raymond is survived by his wife of 73 years, June Caroline (Bahrke); two sons, Tom (Linda) and John; daughter, Nancy (Don) Prahl; grandchildren, Mardel, Jenni, John (Dana) Prahl, Michael (Jill) Prahl and Christopher (Taylor) Prahl; great-grandchildren, Daniel Breaker, Sydney Breaker, Kiersten Prahl, Keali Prahl, Katelyn Brumbaugh, Abigail Brumbaugh and Jaxon Prahl; and many special nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Ray was preceded in death by his parents, Rueben and Nora (Christianson) Breaker; and his sister, Mary Jane Alexander. 

In his early years Ray farmed on his parent’s farm and later became a truck driver for Harvey Tipler livestock, Larsen Co-op, Courtney & Plummer and Michels Corporation.

As a member of Grace Lutheran Church, Winchester he ushered for many years and in later years enjoyed the meals and fellowship of the OWLS. (Older Wiser Lutheran Seniors).

Ray was a simple man, a man of few words, but especially enjoyed snowmobiling during the long cold winters, which included many trips up north with friends and family. He was a proud member of the Cruising Paths Snowmobile Club. His other pastimes included watching NASCAR, his polka music TV shows and keeping his lawn meticulously mowed on his John Deere. 

A gathering of family and friends will be held at Mueller Funeral Home 904 E. Main St. Winneconne on Friday, August 28, 2020, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. until the time of the funeral service at 3:00 p.m. Pastor Connie Bramlett will be officiating. Private family interment will take place at Grace Lutheran Cemetery, Winchester.

Ray’s family extends a special thank you and appreciation to the Clayton First Responders, and the medical staffs of the Theda Clark ER, 6th floor and ICU departments.  

In lieu of flowers, please consider memorial contributions in Ray’s name to the Larsen-Winchester Lions Club P.O. Box 92 Larsen, WI 54947.

I wish to extend my sympathy to June and her family over the death of her dear husband. As the oldest child of Don and Virginia Anderson, I have many fond memories of the friendship between Raymond and my dad and the interactions I had with your family at Grace Lutheran. Most recently, two years ago, my husband and I spoke with June at the church when we came back to celebrate our 50th anniversary at the church where we were married.

As an addendum to my Legacy. Com posting - - Please allow me to again express heartfelt sympathies on Raymond's passing from second cousin Richard W. Breaker in Oshkosh. My late father Carl Breaker from Neenah resembled Raymond. They both "looked like a Breaker." Raymond's father was Rueben and his grandfather was Frank. My father Carl was the son of Rudolph Breaker. Frank was Rudolph's younger brother. So many relatives, and most of us have never met. The older generation of Breaker's was equally as large as today's younger generations. God Bless Breaker's Everywhere. As a side note: Hello to Bonnie Anderson Campbell, my Neenah High classmate from 1964. You were in very good company knowing the Breaker's from Larsen and Grace Lutheran in Winchester for the past 50+ years.
