Joe and I played many rounds of golf together and it was simply amazing what Joe could do with one arm. He never let his handicap get in the way of whatever he set his mind to. We enjoyed dining together at many establishments. He always said that he would never quit working and he was true to his word. RIP my good friend.

One of my earliest memories was being one of two flower girls for Joe's wedding! His mother, Hildegard, was a sister to my father, Bill Buchner, where they all grew up above Buchner's Tavern (Sloopy's Alma Mater), a tavern built by Hildegard's mother. So successful was the tavern, Hildegard's mother built the big red house next door for her seven children with her husband, Joe Buchner. And so, the Buchners, and the Hengels all grew up to be plumbers! RIP.

Joe amazed me!!! Golfing with him. Fishing with a cane pole & catching more than everyone else on the boat. I did not have business with him, but do know about the multiple “units” built by him. Always kind & interested in what I was doing. RIP Joe, & thank you for Long Lake.

Dear kin, yes, Joe was my 1st cousin so we are related. Yes, Joe was an amazing boy and man who proved that one nun so wrong. His determination and courage took him through life an a high note. Yes, he was truly a “Hengel” aping his dad Joe and his uncles Nic and Ray with his humor. There was always a joke along with a pleasant greeting. They were so alike! My prayer is that he will be even happier in heaven than he ever was here on earth. He worked hard to prove himself and now he can Rest In Peace. Jim and Joe, you will miss him more and more as time goes on but memories of him will keep you smiling. Love, cousin Marilyn

I was saddened to read of Joe's death. For many years he delighted me, almost daily it seems, at the Frank-Len offices on South Avenue. I was a young sweet thing from Iowa when I married Lennie and as I recall, Joe was my first introduction to the Cosmopolitan World of LaCrosse! He was Kind and Fun and always had a word of advice for me. Luckily, I was wise enough to ignore him but I Loved Him Dearly. I am So Very Sorry we have lost him!

Joe was many things; rough, funny, sensitive but never one to stay down when dealt a serious set back. I'll miss the life experiences I was lucky enough to share with him. RIP
