Louis G. “Louie” “Lou” Droessler, 45, of Prairie du Chien and formerly of Cuba City, passed away on Thursday, Feb. 11, 2021, at Mayo Clinic Franciscan Hospital in La Crosse. 

Louie was born on Dec. 9, 1975, to Greg and Paula (Banfield) Droessler in Dubuque, Iowa. He was a graduate of Cuba City High School and worked as a welder for Dillman Equipment in Prairie du Chien. Louie enjoyed fishing, hunting, NASCAR, music, parties, watching Brewers, Packers and Badgers, family gatherings and cookouts. He enjoyed his time on the ice and fishing with his brother Beau. His approachable nature had him spending as much time engaging in conversation with fellow fishermen as he did fishing, but he always managed to catch his limit. Most of all, he enjoyed time with his family and friends, especially hosting garage parties with Robin. Louie was a proud grandpa and had a very special relationship with his granddaughter, Lovely. They would video chat often, along with her mom, Xavi, and her little brothers. Lovely’s special name for him was “Papa Lou,” and that meant the world to him and put a giant smile on his face every time she called him that. He was known for his loving heart and great personality and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him. 

Louie is survived by his wife, Robin (Gerhards) Droessler; a daughter, Xavionna Droessler of Davenport, Iowa; his parents, Paula Banfield of Dubuque, and Greg (Jane) Droessler of Cuba City; two sisters, Erin (Jay) Digman of Cuba City, and Manda (Travis) Then of Cascade, Iowa; three brothers, Beau (Candace) Droessler of Platteville, Fr. Chad Droessler of Monona, and Russ Droessler of Milwaukee; two stepsons, Ryan (Sarah) Gerhards and Brett Gerhards of Cuba City; and three grandchildren, Lovely, Jamaris and Jayshawn; along with many nieces and nephews. 

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Louis and Grace Banfield and Gerald and Luetta Droessler.

Special thanks to his lifelong friend, Brad Blackbourn, who stayed by him and supported him with frequent calls and visits especially during his time of greatest need.
