Willard L. Yngsdal

Willard L Yngsdal

Willard Laverne Yngsdal led a wonderful life for 96 years until his passing on June 14, 2021, at the Pines Assisted Living in Prairie du Sac.

He was born in Clifton, Roxbury Township on September 16, 1924, to William and Martha (Zug) Yngsdal. He worked with his father and brothers in the creation and maintenance of the original nine-hole Lake Wisconsin Country Club. Willard graduated in 1942 from Prairie du Sac High School and served in the U.S. Navy during WWII prior to making his profession as a sheet metal worker for Harnischfeger in Milwaukee.

Willard married Delores “DeeDee” Lefebure February 28, 1970. Together they enjoyed traveling and their home in Sussex, where they were surrounded by loving neighbors whom the family is extremely thankful for. Willard was an outstanding golfer and superb bowler. He looked forward to the annual deer hunt at the camp up north.

Willard was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Dee; and siblings Beatrice (Warren) Moungey, Gladys (Gordon) Hathaway, William (Leoma) Yngsdal, Luella (Ray) Nichols, and Myrtle Fieldhouse.

Willard was a kind man with a generous heart and love for children. Our hearts are broken, and he will be deeply missed by his surviving brothers, Ed (Marion) Yngsdal, Bob (Elaine) Yngsdal, and Arthur (Donna) Yngsdal. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, Sara (Mike) Poos; whom he loved like a granddaughter and grandson, and other relatives.

Willard’s family extends a heartfelt thank you to the staff of the Pines Assisted Living, Maplewood, and Agrace Hospice for the tender care given at the end of his life.

A private family service will be held on June 27, 2021.
