Dr.AugustRademacher

March 9, 1923 – November 19, 2013

Dr. August Rademacher was born March 9, 1923 at his family home in Westboro, Wisconsin and passed on November 19, 2013 at his home in Shingle Springs, California.
August is survived by sons (from first wife Emily) Robert Bruce Rademacher of Folsom, CA and Kurt (Sandy) Rademacher of Lotus, CA, grandchildren Kadra and Weston Rademacher (Kurt and Sandy) and Eric Rademacher (Robert), sisters Dr. Hansi Patience, retired opthomologist of Arizona and Gotelind Holyfield, retired teacher of Georgia. He was proceded in death by son

Dr. Mark Rademacher, Sister Emden Sivulka and brother Fritz Rademacher. He was lovingly taken care of to the end by companion Sandy Woodring.

The family of Oscar and Florence Rademacher resided on a farm in rural Wisconsin which produced many stories August would share regarding hard work and perseverance. Besides owning a farm Oscar was an attorney and practiced in Madison.

Upon completing high school August attended Stevens Point State Teachers college. In April of 1944 he enlisted in the Army where he received his pilots training and mainly flew the B-25 Mitchel. He was honorably released from duty in November of 1945 and reenlisted September, 1949 to June, 1952. During this time he also attended Northwestern University Dental School, graduating in 1951. August practiced dentistry in Illinois, Lafayette CA, Cameron Park and finally Shingle Springs until January, 2013.

August was involved in many organizations: The Air Squadron, Flying Samaritans, Elks Club, Safari Club (RV), Chugger Engines and Sacramento Accordion Club.

He spent many hours flyling his Cessna 180 and over the last few years restored a 1950 Luscombe. He also spent time every fall to deer hunt with son Kurt and later grandson Weston. His talents were many including working on anything mechanical, be it engines, pumps, tractors, he had a knack of fixing things others gave up on. He will be missed by family, friends and loyal patients.

Per August’s request he was cremated and will be buried with full military honors at San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery December 13, 2013 at 1:30 pm. Anyone may join. A local gathering is being planned in his honor to take place tentatively January 18th at the EAA quanza hut, Placerville airport. A notice will be submitted to the Mountain Democrat and can also be obtained at greenvalleymortuary.com. Donations in his memory can be made to the Placerville Elks Lodge #1712, 3821 Quest Court, Shingle Springs, CA 95682.
