Laverne grew up on a dairy farm owned by his parents. He was one of 12 children. He attended Crystal Springs one-room grade school until the eighth grade. He graduated from Cornell High School.
He then left the farm and moved to Kenosha, Wis., and worked for American Motors for many years, returning to Chippewa Falls, where he resided at the Romeis Mill Apartments.
He enjoyed watching all sports, especially the Green Bay Packers and wrestling. He was an avid jogger and liked riding his bike.
Laverne is survived by one brother, Ray Moucha; sisters, Karen Schindler, Sharon (James) Milbeck, Barbara Ayres, Carol (Ed) Frith, Patricia Hoffman, Dorothy Moucha and Delores Baynes. He also enjoyed his many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; a sister, Rosemary Smith; and two brothers, Stanley and David Moucha.
