Alexander Craig Moen

Alexander C. Moen, 17, Prairie Farm, Wis., died Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2022, in rural Clear Lake.

Alex was born May 31, 2005, to Jolene (Haller) Schmitz and Steven Moen at Eau Claire. He attended Prairie Farm Schools before recently completing his HSED through Northwood Technical College. He was planning to attend Northwood Tech next fall to pursue welding.

Alex was a smart, kind and caring kid. He will be remembered for his smile, laugh and hugs. They are already so greatly missed.

Alex loved the outdoors. He loved to hunt, fish and shed hunt. Alex inherited his dad’s love of derbying and you could often find him working on a derby car in the summer months if he wasn’t fishing.

He loved his family and friends more than anything, and spent as much time with them as possible. 

Surviving are his mother and stepfather Jolene and Jason Schmitz of Elk Mound; his father Steven of Prairie Farm; brothers JJ and Jameson Schmitz of Elk Mound, Shane Moen of Prairie Farm and Mason Thompson of Nelson; his grandmother Gerry Moen of Prairie Farm; aunts Crystal (Jake) Hutchison of Prairie Farm and Misty (Matt) Hoff of Barron; an uncle Denver (Kori) Moen of Prairie Farm; cousins Jordan, Evan and Alayna Hutchison, Natalie and Hayden Hoff, and Karson and Emersyn Moen; as well as many more extended relatives and friends. 

Alex was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather Craig Moen; his maternal grandmother Carol Harrison; and great-grandparents Vernon and Gerene Moen, and Dennis and Florence Doerr.

Services were held at 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 7, from First Lutheran Church of Arland, with Rev. Tim Vettrus officiating and interment at Independent Cemetery, Town of Arland.

Visitation was held 3-7 p.m. Sunday and an hour prior to services Monday, both at the church.

Rausch-Lundeen Funeral Homes, Dallas and Cameron, handled arrangements.
