Bob Biese, age 67, of Hollandtown, passed away on Thursday, April 3, 2014 with his family at his side. He was born on November 12, 1946, in the Town of Buchanan, the son of the late Frank and Clara (Arnoldussen) Biese. On October 9, 1968, Bob married Nora Wichman at St. Francis Catholic Church in Hollandtown. He was employed at Badger Northland prior to thirty plus years of farming, and then worked at Hattiesburg Paper until his retirement. Bob enjoyed traveling with friends and family. He looked forward to being outdoors, and loved spending time with his grandchildren. Many will miss his one liners and his great sense of humor that he kept until the end.
