THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Terrence Terry Wiegand, 66, Forestville resident, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Wednesday, Jan. 15.
Born Aug. 28, 1947 in Green Bay to the late Milton and Carole (Hermsen) Wiegand, he graduated from Green Bay Preble High School in 1966.
