THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Thomas A. Hoida
Thomas A. Hoida, 61, died on Monday, May 27.
Born May 31, 1952 to Marvin and Lucille (Pawlak) Hoida in Oconto Falls, he moved to Green Bay at an early age. He graduated from Preble High School with the Class of 1970 where he met the love of his life, Ann Jolly and the couple married on June 16, 1972.
He worked for Pauly Cheese right out of high school and returned to school to earn a degree when the local factory closed. He received a degree in Civil Engineering Technology from NWTC and worked in that field until his illness. He enjoyed hunting and fishing and loved spending time outdoors and sitting by the campfire up north.
