Randy was the second child of five and the oldest boy. My sister always felt she probably picked on him too much when they were youngsters. I heard they always fought. He dairy farmed all of his life, worked very hard, took few vacations, if any. When he finally retired from the daily grind of milking twice a day, he built his first home in a beautiful wooded setting close to the Wisconsin border, big enough for holidays to accommodate all of his children and grandchildren. Being a farmer not used to sitting around, he took a part time job with a sale barn that specialized in farm animals. He seemed truly happy and content.
ORANGEVILLE - Randy J. Brauer, 64, of Orangeville died at 3:38 p.m. Monday, Jan. 11, 2010, at home, surrounded by his loving family, after a courageous battle with cancer. Born March 16, 1945, in Rockford, the son of Harold and Lueva (Parker) Brauer. Married the former Patricia A. Erickson on July 16, 1966, in Orfordville, Wis.

He served in the U.S. Army Reserves. Randy loved being outdoors and spending time with his family and friends. Graduated from Winnebago High School, Class of 1964.
