Rheinold ‘Peter’ L. Lange, 66, of La Crosse passed away peacefully at his home on Monday, March 30, 2020 following a three year battle with liver cancer. He leaves behind his wife, Amy Lange; his son, Rafael Lange; and his daughter, Selah Lange.
Peter was born in Merrill, Wis., on Feb. 18, 1954 to Rheinold and Mary (Becker) Lange who predeceased him.
Peter married Amy Long on March 20, 2003 in Delavan, Wis. Shortly after Peter and Amy married they relocated to LaCrosse, Wis where the couple began to raise their family.
Peter was a devoted husband and father who truly enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He loved biking, reading, listening to music, picnicking at parks, and he especially enjoyed eating ice cream. The most special part of his life was the time he spent with his family and his dedicated faith in the Lord.
When diagnosed with two types of liver cancer in 2017, he remained tenacious and never wavered in his will to fight through the illness. He remained strong even up to his final days.
Peter is survived by his wife and children, his sisters, Linda (Ralph) Creamens and Liza (Curt) Beckman and stepsister Teresa Lange, as well as several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
A private burial will be held at Gate of Heaven Cemetery on Thursday, April 2, 2020, with a celebration of life to be planned for a later date.
