Allan John Krahenbuhl

Allan John Krahenbuhl, 73, passed away Friday, Dec. 11, 2020, at Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse. He was born Oct. 20, 1947, to Roscoe and Mabel (Torney) Krahenbuhl in Mason City, Iowa.

Allan grew up on farms in Iowa and Wisconsin prior to starting his construction career with his older brothers Lynn and Larry. He obtained the status of Master Builder while proudly working for Northland Builders of Northwood, Iowa, for 28 years. Allan was a skilled carpenter and foreman and finished his career as a construction supervisor, building steel Butler buildings. In his spare time, he loved gardening and fishing and enjoyed a couple of fishing trips to Canada. He was a quiet and humble man. He would have done anything to help anyone when they needed it when he was able. The past 16 years following his stroke were tough, but he always found his new normal and fought a valiant fight to the end.

Allan is survived by his children, Melissa Brown of Reedsburg, Amy (Mike) Hedrick of Norwalk, Nicole Krahenbuhl of Tomah, Nicholas Krahenbuhl of Ankeny, Iowa, and Heather (Dan) Comis of Bloomsberg, Penn.; six grandchildren, Andrea (Ryan) Martin, Katie (Ian Bohn) Hedrick, Sam and Anthony “Manny” Hedrick, Dylan and Kaylee Krahenbuhl; his siblings, Fred (Paula), Russell, Charlie (Carol), Cindy (Doug) Vimpany and Jimmy; his sisters-in-law, Gladys “Tiny,” Frieda and Sheryl; a brother-in-law, Ed Burke; along with many other relatives and friends.

Allan was preceded in death by his parents, Roscoe and Mabel; his siblings, Lynn, Larry, Martin and Crystal “Sue” Burke; and his sisters-in-law, Sylvia and Barb Krahenbuhl.

Allan held a special place in his heart for Chris and Rose Krahenbuhl family, Harry and Marguerite Friedl, Judy (Charles) Lydon, John Friedl, Jim (Sue) Friedl, Misty (Krause) Noronha and Jeremy Krause.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the family is having funeral services in Iowa at a later date. The Torkelson Funeral Home in Tomah is assisting the family with arrangements.
