Lawrence Edward Schaefer was born on November 26, 1927 and passed away peacefully April 30, 2022. He grew up in New York City and graduated from Bronx High School of Science in 1945. He then enlisted in the United States Navy and served through WWII. Following his military service he attended NYU and received his degree in Electrical Engineering. He met his wife Otty and fell in love on the lakeshore of Geneva, Switzerland. Together they hiked many trails throughout the Swiss Alps and the American Rockies. They also enjoyed many years of sailing and canoeing together.
His attitude in life was to help others so after he retired from the VA Hospital he became a volunteer driver for handicapped people with RSVP of Dane County for 25 years. We are grateful to the excellent caretakers from Agrace Hospice and would like to thank them for all their help and care.
He is survived by his wife, Otty, and son, Erik.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date at Dale Heights Presbyterian Church.
