THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE

Born Feb. 9, 1950 in Coleman to the late Clarence and Marjorie (Harley) Blumer, he graduated from Lena High School in 1968. He went on to study at Green Bay Vocational College, where he graduated with an associates degree in computer science.
He started his career at Data Inc. and Good Humor, then retired from Stratagem due to illness. In 1986 he married Marianne Watson (Beaumier). They divorced 15 years later, but reconciled in May of 2011 when she became his best-friend, caregiver and confidante. He was a Corvette enthusiast and would rebuild and restore Corvettes from the frame up. His pride and joy were his 1966 Coupe and his 1967 Big Block Convertible. He was a longtime member of Corvettes of the Bay and would attend Bloomington Gold, the world's largest Corvette show.
