Loren “Lorney” Marcusen

Dec 27, 1944 - Feb 12, 2024

age 79, of Wausaukee, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Monday February 12, 2024. He was born in Green Bay on December 27, 1944; son of the late Byron and Marian (Schaf) Marcusen. Loren graduated from Wausaukee High School and entered the United States Army and served in the Blackhorse 11th Armored Cavalry Unit in Vietnam (1966-1967). Lorney received an Air Medal award for single acts of heroism or meritorious achievements while participating in aerial flight. Upon returning home from service, he worked construction in Milwaukee and in 1970 purchased and operated a saw shop in the Village of Wausaukee, servicing and selling Husqvarna chain saws until his retirement.

Lorney and his wife attended many Blackhorse reunions all over the country and also enjoyed several trips to Europe. They had an exchange student from Iceland and have visited and kept in contact with him over these many years.

Loren enjoyed hunting, including two trips to Quebec to hunt elk, but his passion was fishing. He had many enjoyable fishing trips to Canada and North Dakota but especially he and his wife loved camping at Witz Marina in Skanee, Michigan. He and his fishing buddies enjoyed many, many days of fishing on Lake Superior and Huron Bay. He had wonderful memories of all the good times with his many friends.

Loren is survived by his wife of 54 years, Mary Ann (Faucette); his brother, Ron (Bonnie) Marcusen of Green Bay, a sister, Bev (Art) Schuenemann of Aiken, South Carolina, brothers, Denis (Ann) Marcusen and Bob Marcusen, both of Wausaukee; and many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and a great great niece and nephew.

Rick & I want to extend condolences to you for your loss. We both enjoyed Lorney so much & our fur babies really loved visiting the saw shop for the treats that they knew he always had for them behind the counter. He'll be sadly missed & will be in our thoughts often.
