Mukwonago icon Harold Koeffler dies

Harold Koeffler, who owned Koeffler Chevrolet in Mukwonago for decades, died Wednesday at age 100.

Visitation is planned for 2:30 until the Masonic service on Sunday, April 29, at the Schmidt and Bartelt Funeral Home, 930 Main St., Mukwonago. A second visitation is planned for 10:30 until the 11 a.m. funeral service Monday, April 30, at the funeral home. The family will have a private burial at Oak Knoll Cemetery in Mukwonago.

Memorials are suggested to the Mukwonago Public Library or Timber Tree.

Koeffler was involved in numerous community organizations and efforts, including membership of the Mukwonago Kiwanis and Kiwanis Foundation Board, the Mukwonago Library Board, Shriners, 32nd-degree Mason, Scottish Rite and Mukwonago Chamber of Commerce. He was a member of Cousin Otto's Clown Alley under the name "Wheels." He was the Waukesha Coin Club's oldest member, attending his last coin show and negotiating sales last month.

He loved to travel, and visited every continent. He was an invited member of the first USA business delegation to China, walked on Antarctica icebergs at age 82 and explored Iceland at 92.
