THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
David S. Majewski
David S. Majewski, 67, of Armstrong Creek passed away on Friday, July 12.
Born on Oct. 31, 1945 in Armstrong Creek at the family farm to the late Chester and Wanda (Wozniak) Majewski, he married Linda Lotto on Aug. 19, 1967.
His love for the outdoors led him to his career as Forest Administrator for Florence County. He held this position until his retirement in 2006 after 33 years of service. He held many civic roles in the area and was recently elected as the Chairman of the Armstrong Creek Town Board. He served on the school board for over 30 years, was a member of the Economic Development for the Town of Goodman and Armstrong Creek, was involved in the Armstrong Creek Sportsmans Club, Jaycees and Lions Clubs and served in the state organizations of Wild Rivers Committee and Conservation Congress.
He was a regular on many of the surrounding softball fields. Not only did he play for the Armstrong Creek town league, he also coached Babe Ruth, Little League and high school baseball. When he did find spare time he also enjoyed raising buffalo, gardening, fishing and hunting. He recently harvested a moose and Dahl sheep on a hunting expedition to Alaska. He was a jack of all trades.
He is survived by his wife, Linda, two sons, Robert (Shelly) of Peshtigo and Lorne (Tanya) of Cumberland; three sisters, Audrey (Kim) Kostuch of Raymond, Debbie (Pat) Kelly of Athens and Susan (Gordy) Garvens of Omro and two brothers, William (Sue) of Duluth, Minn. and Richard (Barbara) of Armstrong Creek. He is further survived by four grandchildren and one on the way.
Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by a daughter, Sally Ann and a granddaughter, Kyra.

Visitation was on Tuesday, July 16 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Community Center and from 10 a.m. until the time of service on Wednesday. Deacon Jerry Cross officiated.
