Tanner Hirschuber

September 3, 2020 | 6 comments

Tanner Hirschuber, 30 of Lacrosse, WI, lost his battle with addiction on Friday August 28th, 2020.

Tanner was born to parents, Terry and Kelley Hirschuber on December 22, 1989. Growing up and into high school he excelled at sports including baseball and football. He also spent years earning his second degree black belt in karate and loved competing in karate tournaments on the weekends. Tanner enjoyed spending time with family, weekends on the river and hanging out with his friends.

Later in life, Tanner would have four beautiful children whom he loved deeply. Being a dad was one of his proudest accomplishments in life. His children Liam (9), Jaxon (5), Julian (2), and Jemma (3mo) will miss him dearly.

He had a laugh that filled the room and a sense of humor that caught you off guard. He could be a man of few words and also spend an entire night talking your ear off. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Tanner is preceded in death by grandparents, Margie and William “Bick” Hirschuber; Grandmother Iva Trainor; 3 uncles, Bill and Tim Hirschuber and David Trainor; and cousin Ruby Trainor. He is survived by his parents, Terry and Kelley Hirschuber; sister, Felicia (Lewis) Miller; brothers, Josh (Kelly) Hirschuber and Jamie (Kim) Hirschuber; his children, nephews, nieces and several aunts, uncles and cousins.

    Terry & Family,
    We are so sorry about Tanner. We can only imagine how hard this must be for everyone, especially his kids. May only good memories help you in the days ahead.
    Our sympathies to the whole family.
    Jane & Mark Kruger

    God bless Tan’s family and everyone who knew and loved him. The sun has been shining so brightly since he passed that it seems like heaven is happy to have him home. His smile is emblazoned in our hearts and we will miss him until we meet him again. His children carry his hope into the future and I’m sure everyone will do whatever they can to let them know how wonderful he was. Funny thing is that we can still feel him close by, so we know he is watching over them. I’m sure he will never leave them again. Tom says that he and Tanner had so many inside jokes that all they had to do was look at one another and they would smile. I told him that that’s a wonderful gift that he gave him. Not everyone gets to have friends that care so deeply about them that they only have to look at them to feel special. I’m guessing that everyone who knew Tanner, knew love, since he had such a big heart. I’m also pretty sure that he would never want anyone to hurt because of him, so try to keep that in mind when remembering this perfectly imperfect human. Take care

    My son also lost this struggle. I buried him Friday. This message has helped me. The author is unknown. I pray for you.

    God saw you were getting tired,
    and a cure was not to be,
    so He put His arms around you,
    and said “come to Me”

    Through tearfull eyes we watched you,
    as you slowly slipped away,
    and though we loved you dearly,
    we couldn’t make you stay.

    Oh no. We are so sad to hear of Tanner’s death. We can not imagine what all of you are going through and the thoughts in your minds. He was such a joy in our lives when we had him as a “son”.

    To all of Tanner’s family and friends, I’m sorry for this loss.
    RIP Tanner, you will be missed.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. Praying you feel God’s loving arms wrapped around you as you grieve and that fond memories bring you comfort.
