THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Dale Boettcher, 63, of Marinette passed away on Tuesday, March 26 at Bay Area Medical Center, Marinette with family and friends at his side from complications of Muscular Dystrophy.
Born on April 28, 1949 in Marinette to the late LeRoy and Marion (Kushman) Boettcher and many knew him from his days when he worked for the Risen Son Bookstore.
Although he was faced with many physical challenges throughout his life, he never let his struggles bring him down.
