Glen Wraspir, 77, of Silver Lake

Glen H. Wraspir, 77, of Silver Lake passed away Friday, March 8, at Cedar Crest Estate in Silver Lake.
Mr. Wraspir was born April 1, 1941, in Silver Lake, the son of Henry and Mildred (Cuhel) Wraspir.
He was baptized. Pastor Walter B. Beach later confirmed him in his faith as a youth June 5, 1955 at The Congregational Church in Silver Lake.
Mr. Wraspir was a graduate of Silver Lake High School in 1959.
Mr. Wraspir was united in marriage to Doris Ondracek Sept. 8, 1962, at The Czech Brethren Presbyterian Church in Silver Lake. Dr. E. Joseph Rose officiated. This marriage was blessed with two children, Dale and Debbie. They shared 56 years of marriage.
Mr. Wraspir held employment at The Powell Candy Company for a short time before entering a partnership with his father in a building and house moving company. He then began working for AG Systems Inc. in Hutchinson until his retirement, where he truly was a jack of all trades -- a welder, draftsman, designer -- just about everything.
Mr. Wraspir enjoyed golfing, hunting, fishing, gardening, ice fishing and playing cribbage with his friends almost daily. He also liked camping, deer hunting and snowmobiling. He loved to tinker around with things, and fix them if broken. He loved working with wood and making many things. Mr. Wraspir enjoyed making homemade sauerkraut, horseradish, sausage, bologna and wieners. He was a honorary lifetime member of the Silver Lake Sportsmen’s Club and spent many years as its chief cook, making turtle soup for the annual stag party. Mr. Wraspir was a faithful member of Faith Presbyterian Church in Silver Lake.
Mr. Wraspir is survived by his loving wife, Doris M. Wraspir; children, Dale (Betty) Wraspir of Silver Lake and Debbie (Reggie) Krueger of Watertown; grandchildren, Claire, Ethan and Andrew Wraspir and Bailey (Derek) VanDeVeire, Julia (Nathanael) Hostetter and Kelsey Krueger; brother, Larry Wraspir of Howard Lake; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Mildred.
