Obituary: Adam Matthew LaLuzerne

Adam Matthew LaLuzerne, 22, of Sheboygan, formerly of Sturgeon Bay, died July 17, 2016.  He was born on December 2, 1993, in Green Bay to Steven and Lori (Zirbel) LaLuzerne.  Adam attended St. John Bosco School in Sturgeon Bay and graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School in 2012. After high school, he graduated (cum laude) from St. Norbert College with a Bachelor Degree in Business Administration – Accounting.  He was currently working in Sheboygan for Acuity as a Business Analyst.

Adam was a very active and social person who was always “on the go.”  He loved being with friends, cooking and baking, especially cheesecakes.  He loved sports and enjoyed playing intramurals in college and following the Packers and Brewers.  He was also an avid bowler, recently rolling a 300.  During high school, Adam played on the soccer team which made it to state several seasons in a row.

Adam’s love and concern for others led him to be involved in numerous volunteer organizations.  While in college, Adam was a leader in the Habitat for Humanity Club and the St. Norbert Garden Club which raised produce for area food pantries and the college cafeteria.  He was also a leader for TRIPS (Turning Responsibility Into Powerful Service), a national mission program, and YouthWorks, a Christian based youth organization which ministered to the Indian Reservations in South Dakota.  Adam will always be remembered as an exceptional young man who loved life and helping others, leading and inspiring others to do the same.
