Clarence "Mick" Rummel, 93, a resident of Sarona, WI died on Sunday, October 14, 2012 at Terraceview Living Center in Shell Lake, WI.

Clarence LeRoy Rummel was born in Iowa Falls, Iowa on October 6, 1919. He moved to Shell Lake, WI in 1921. Clarence graduated from Spooner High School in 1939.

Clarence worked driving a milk truck, worked for Farmer's Co-op, and the Railroad. He started working at the Shell Lake Boat Factory in 1944 where he was one of the original crew and loved to tell stories about how when he started they had to bend the wood to make the boats. He became a foreman at the boat factory, as well as a designer, making molds, and eventually he was talked into taking the position of purchasing agent. (He liked the physical labor better, though). He retired from what was then known as the Lund Boat Factory in 1980 when it closed.

Clarence also bartended in the evening, for many local taverns, while he was employed at the boat factory. He built his own tavern, Rummel's Tap, in 1970, where he bartended at night after working at the boat factory during the day. He enjoyed visiting with the people who came in day after day just to find an ear to talk to. They enjoyed his company almost as much as he enjoyed theirs. He kept the bar open, with the help of his son Mick, Jr. and it still gives people a place to gather with friends today.

Clarence is survived by 3 sons and 5 daughters: Ronald (Judy) Rummel, Sarona, WI, LeRoy (Becky) Rummel, Solon Springs, WI, Roxanne Tabb (Dennis Springer) Fullerton, CA, Karen Kohl, Glendora, CA, Cathy Bednar, Sarona, WI, Susan (Gary) Johnson, Spooner, WI, Dawn Rummel, Shell Lake, WI, Michael (April Coyle) Rummel, Sarona WI. Also, survived by one brother, Fay (Doris) Rummel, Sarona, WI and a son-in-law, Bob Jerry, Cumberland, WI.

Clarence leaves behind 25 Grandchildren, 47 great-grandchildren, and 4 great great-grandchidren. He was preceded in death by his parents, LeRoy and Nellie Rummel, a brother, Ray Rummel, a daughter, Sharon Jerry and three grandsons.

A Memorial Service for Clarence Rummel will be held at 4 pm, on Monday, October 22, 2012 at the Dahl Funeral Home with visitation from 1 4 pm prior to the service at the funeral home.
Inurnment will be in the Shell Lake Cemetery.
