Theodore “Ted” Victor Kuehl Sr, age 78, of Augusta, WI, passed away at his home on Saturday, July 8, 2023, surrounded by his family.
He was born to Victor and Fern (Shoemaker) Kuehl in Beloit, WI. Ted grew up in Butler Township in Clark County before moving to Eau Claire in 1959, where he attended Memorial and North High Schools. At the age of 17 he enlisted in the Army and served his country for six years during the Vietnam War. After his honorable discharge he married Peggy “Sue” D’Lamatter on June 4, 1969.
Ted loved the woods. Logging was his passion and felt most at home in the woods operating a skidder. During his life he farmed, drove over the road, but always came back to the woods.
