August 31, 2018 | 12 comments

Brad Furuseth, 27, of La Crosse Passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, August 30, 2018 at Gunderesen Health System. He was born on August 21, 1991 to Dennis and Sherri (Dobson) Furuseth. He married Heather Wortman on October 10, 2014.

Brad could always be found tinkering on anything in his house with wires. A lover of computer and sound systems, he would be what some call, the definition of a “computer geek”. He loved to work around his house building and fixing things. He and his grandfather both loved to cheer on the Bears and Cubs. He was working towards achieving his Bachelor’s degree and was currently employed at Western Technical College in La Crosse as a simulation technician.

Brad is survived by his wife, Heather; children, Emma and Isabella; parents, Dennis and Sherri; sisters, Deena (Ron) Tracy and Brittney (Sam) Stelpflug; grandparents, Margaret Furuseth, Curt and Jean Dobson; the Wortman family; and his best friend, Brad “Curly” Renner. He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Dean Furuseth.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family are preferred.

A celebration of his life gathering will be held on Monday, September 10, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., at Coulee Region Cremation Group, 133 Mason St., Onalaska, WI 54650.
