Allen Gratz, age 66, of Boscobel, Wisc. passed away on Monday February 13, 2023, at the Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse. He was born on June 7, 1956, in Prairie du Chien the son of Gerald and Viola (Bunts) Gratz. Allen was united in marriage to Sandra Udelhoven in 1973. With this marriage, they shared three children.

As a young boy, Allen loved farming and continued following his passion while working on the family farms for years. He later worked in area factories as a laborer until having to retire due to his declining health. Allen’s love of working the land and raising livestock continued until his death. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing cards, games, dice, and having a cold beer with family and friends. Allen adored his family and enjoyed family gatherings. He had a love for sports and excelled in softball. He was an avid Packers, Brewers, and Badger fan. He enjoyed playing in the old timer’s softball games and was known for his homerun hitting ability. Allen will be remembered for his jokester personality, his little giggle, and his dedication to his family. The family would like to extend a special “Thank You” to the Soldiers Grove Nursing Home and their staff for the wonderful care that our father received for the past few years.
