Friske, Bernard Kent (1 March 1941 - 7 October 2010)


Bernard K. Friske, 69, of Greenwood, died at the House of the Dove, in Marshfield, Thursday, Oct. 7, 2010.


Bernard Kent Friske was born March 1, 1941, in Greenwood, the son of Norbert and Adella (Wells) Friske.  He was raised on the family farm and received his education in Greenwood, graduating from Greenwood High School in 1959.  Bernie farmed his entire life in the Town of Eaton.  He enjoyed traveling and took many trips to Montana during the summers to see the mountains.  Bernie also traveled to Egypt and saw the pyramids from the back of a camel.  He had a passion for animals, especially horses and his registered Holstein, Majestic Elms Amy.


Bernie had many interests, but especially enjoyed reading, trail riding, snowmobiling, three-wheeling, bowling, playing cards and hanging around younger people.  He was a charter member of the Greenwood FFA Alumni, was instrumental in starting the Greenwood Satellites 4-H Club and was a member of the Holstein Association and the Greenwood Saddle Club. 


He will be dearly missed by two aunts, Marguerite Friske of Whitehall and Kathryn Wells of Greenwood; one uncle, Burt (Jeanne) Wells of Spencer; and other relatives and many special friends.


He was preceded in death by his parents.


A gathering was held at 1 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 10 at Bernie’s residence (W5233 Willard Road, Greenwood), followed by a graveside service at 2 p.m. in the Greenwood City Cemetery.


Pallbearers were: Marty Nigon, Dale Lindner, John Lindner, Donnie Rowley, Maynard Bowe, Mark Gregorich, Brandon Nigon and Doug Denk.
