Obituary for Paul M. Stadler

MIDDLETON- Paul M. Stadler, age 59, passed away on Thursday, Feb. 4, 2016, at home, surrounded by his wife and daughter. He was born on Nov. 25, 1956, the son of John and Donna Stadler. Paul was the second son of four children. He grew up in Eau Claire. Paul found great joy in reconnecting with early childhood friends during his year and a half illness preceding his death. Paul attended UW-Eau Claire and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Finance. There, he met a nursing student who later became his wife, Karla (Ludvigson). Paul's career was diverse. He was a stock broker at EF Hutton, a manager at the Banking House of Alloeuz, and Number One Wholesaler at Aid Association for Lutherans (AAL). Paul became Vice President of Sales and Marketing at AAL, then President of Woodmen Financial Services in Omaha, Neb. His current employer was National Mutual Benefit, where he was Vice President of Sales and Marketing. He was proud to win various awards for his marketing ideas over his career. Paul traveled extensively for work and saw many parts of the U.S. His hobbies included photography, snowmobiling, fishing and maintenance around his cottage near Lake Wisconsin. In 1997, Paul and Karla were blessed to welcome into the world their daughter, Arielle. As a parent, Paul was extremely proud of "his little girl". Paul is survived by his wife, Karla; daughter, Arielle, age 18; mother, Donna (Mittermiller); siblings, Julie Stadler, Steve (Nancy) Stadler, and Dan Stadler; sister-in-law, Jill Sikora; nieces and nephews, John Stadler, Samantha (Nate) Bergman, Mason Stadler, Megan (Mark) Wilhelm and their son Preston, and Leslie Stadler. He was preceded in death by his father, John Stadler; and several close friends. Paul's family would like to express appreciation to UW Health Carbone Cancer Center and Agrace HospiceCare for the care they provided. The family was extremely blessed to have had tremendous support from various family, friends, and neighbors, especially Julie Stadler, the McNerney family, Herb family, Sandy Masacchio, as well as many neighbors of Prairie Home Estates. The employees of National Mutual Benefit, as well as UW Health Quality Improvement department were tremendous support, as were friends from Green Bay, Menasha, and Omaha. Memorial services will be held at ST. LUKE'S LUTHERAN CHURCH, 7337 Hubbard Ave., Middleton, at 3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 13, 2016 with Pastor Heather Hayward presiding. Visitation will be held at the church from 1:30 p.m. until the time of service on Saturday.
