Edward George Eeg, age 86, passed away Wednesday, December 23, 2015 at Ridgewood Care Center. He was born in LaCrosse, WI, August 3, 1929, son of the late Edgar and Marie (Nee:Lepsch) Eeg. He was raised in LaCrosse and graduated from Aquinas High School.

Ed furthered his education at the University of Wisconsin Madison where he received a BS in Chemical Engineering. He went to the University of Akron for post graduate work receiving a Masters degree in Polymer Science. He served in the National Guard. On December 29, 1951, at Blessed Sacrament Church in Madison, he was united in marriage to Nancy L. Mundt. They resided in Akron for 5 years where Ed worked for Goodyear Co. Ed was hired by S.C. Johnson Co in 1958 and the family moved to Racine. He retired in 1994 with several patents to his name but continued to work as a consultant for another 10 years primarily on patent work for others as well as environmental and recycling concerns for SCJ. Ed traveled extensively around the world for work and often took his wife Nancy with him to Europe, Morocco, and many other places. He was an avid tennis player and was also known to pick up his accordion and play for his kids and grandkids. Ed was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church and the Holy Name Society. He was also a member of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the Society of Plastic Engineers and the Harbor Lite Yacht Club. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He will be so dearly missed.

Surviving are four children: Daniel (RaeAnn) Eeg of Racine; Jonathan (Lynn) Eeg of Racine; Laura Meier of Milwaukee; Barbara (Scott) Braun of Racine; seven grandchildren: Hillarie (Tom) White; Tobias (Kelley) Eeg; Caleb Eeg; Jennifer (Matthew) Elster; Nicole (Kevin) Singstock; Matthew Braun; Olivia Braun; four great-grandchildren: Carson, Cameron, Carter; and Harper; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, (Ramona Buss) of Yellville, AK, Mary (Phil) Handel of Middleton, WI, Anne Marie (David) Salisbury of Monroe, GA; nieces, nephews, and other relatives. He leaves to cherish many dear friends especially Jim Larsen who was his best man and best friend though life. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his wife Nancy last December 30, 2014, his brother-in-law Philip Mundt, and his sister, Nancy Holthaus this past December 11th.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, December 29, 2015, 11:00 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 2200 Northwestern Avenue with Rev. Ricardo Martin officiating. Entombment will follow at Holy Cross Mausoleum, Hwy 32. Relatives and friends may meet Tuesday at the church at 9:30 a.m. until time of Mass.
