Michael S. Mosur, Jr., 79, of Marinette, passed away Friday, Jan. 31.
Born Jan. 20, 1941, to the late Michael and Julia (Skalba) Mosur, Sr., he was raised on the family homestead on Old Peshtigo Road in Peshtigo and attended Peshtigo High School. He then joined the United States Navy in 1959, achieving the rank of Radioman E5 before an honorable discharge in 1963. In 1964, he married the former Roxann Disher and they were together for 55 years.
He worked for General Electric and Standard Electric, was a savvy businessman, taking ideas and perfecting them and later starting his own company Labat Specialties in Milwaukee, before retiring in 2006, when they returned to the area.
A skilled craftsman, he loved woodworking, doing various home projects and took pride in everything he did with the intent to making everything last. He didn't just make things, he changed things and could do anything.
