LaVerne “Butch” J. Feuling Jr.


We are sad to announce the passing of LaVerne J. Feuling Jr., 57, of Winona, MN, who died October 8, 2022, at Methodist Hospital in Rochester, MN, from a head injury due to a motor cycle accident.

LaVerne, also called “Butch”, was born in Racine, and had a long-life companion, Diane Hicks, along with her four children: William, Crystal, Raymond and Leonard, as well as significant others and grandchildren, who all enjoyed him throughout his life. LaVerne was loved by his family. He enjoyed working on small engine projects, riding motorcycle and snowmobiling. Everything his dad taught him and enjoyed in life, Butch continued as he grew up. He was always willing to help out someone and never turned a stray animal away as well. Butch crafted his experiences and skills to give to others. He will be truly missed and those skills and experiences he shared will live on.
