It’s mighty hard to say goodbye to a friend
By Kurt Krueger

IT’S NEVER good news when the scribbler has to remove the photos of a certain individual from the newspaper archives, and this time the bad news hit really close to home.
One of the best and closest fishing buddies I ever had, died last week. His photo has graced this space many times the past 30 years, and he was usually holding some big walleye or northern pike as yet another fishing tale unfolded.

I miss Grandpa beyond words!!! Great tribute dad. He truly was a courageous and unselfish man. May his memories live on forever!! Praying that we fish with him again some day.

What a nice tribute. Sorry for your family's loss, especially your wife.
