Herbert M. Krohn "Mark", age 67, of Cassville and formerly of Bloomington, passed away peacefully on May 17th, 2016 at Grant Regional Health Center in Lancaster, WI, after a courageous battle with cancer.
   Mark was born July 29th, 1948, in Lancaster, the son of Herbert and Bernice (Peake) Krohn. He was the youngest of seven children. He shared a lot of childhood memories of running around the hillsides of Beetown, many of them with his dog Tippy at his side.        He graduated from Lancaster High School in 1966. He served in the US Air Force from 1967 to 1971. He married Patsy Valdovinos on March 25th, 1968. Together they raised four children; Jeffrey, Tammy, Melissa & Kandy
in Bloomington, WI. They later divorced.
   Mark moved to Cassville, WI and was united in marriage with Cathy McNett on September 28th, 1996 at the Little
Brown Church in Nashua, Ia.
   He worked 37 years for Schurman's Butter and Cheese, Wisconsin Dairies and at Foremost Farms until his retirement. Mark spent a lot of years hunting for deer, mushrooms, asparagus and ginseng, along with fishing from his boat, and the banks, all over Grant County and up North on occasion.      He had many great stories to tell about his adventures and a wonderful sense of humor to go along with it. He was quite the handyman and a great advice giver. He loved gardening, baking his award winning apple pies and garage saling (always getting the best deal). Mark also enjoyed shining deer, going for rides and visiting the Amish stores and bakeries.
   He was a big fan of Willie Nelson & enjoyed seeing him in concert. He enjoyed his annual Father's Day trips to the Dells and loved to spend time with his loving family. He will be greatly missed.
   Mark is survived by his wife, Cathy (McNett) Krohn, Cassville; four children: Jeffrey (Amy) Krohn, Prairie du Chien, Tammy (Kyle) Hudson, Melissa (John) Okey and Kandy (Matt Walker) Krohn, all of Cassville; his grandchildren:
Jeffrey, Wade, Lindsey, Laura and Shane; his father and mother-in-law, Keith and Helen McNett; his sisters-in-law Evelyn Krohn, Ellen Krohn, Violet Krohn, Jeanine (Jerry) Hochhausen, Barb (Pat) Dietrich, Marsha (Mike) Valentine, and brother-in-law Jim (Amy) McNett; his beloved cat Willie.
   He was preceded in death by his parents, his siblings Richard, Robert, Stanley, Daryl, Marita Dilworth and Marsha Esser, and a granddaughter Faith Walker.
   A celebration of Mark's life, including military rites, will be held from noon until 5:00 p.m. on June 26th, 2016 at the Beetown Town Hall in Beetown, WI.

Larry Gage, 69, formerly of Waterloo, Iowa, died suddenly of natural causes at his farm in Soldiers Grove, WI. instead of in his bass boat fishing as he so hoped.

   Larry served in the Vietnam War and was a proud U.S. Army Ranger.  He was awarded two Bronze Stars and the Purple Heart.

   He was preceded in death by his parents.
   He was a lifetime member of B.A.S.S and a district director of Fishers of Men National Tournament Trail.  He was  also a member of the American Legion, and  the Wisconsin State Horse Council (of which he was District 5 Vice President).
   Larry worked hard to support his family, particularly Adrienne's horse hobby. He was also an avid snowmobiler who also enjoyed camping, and hunting.
