Richard Brodhagen

Richard N. Brodhagen, 75, passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 29, 2016, at St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield.

He was born on July 7, 1940, in Shawano to the late Norman and Ethel Brodhagen. He grew up on the family farm in Bonduel with his four sisters: Carol (Walt) Bestul, Ginny (Mike) Jesse, Mary (Jim) Egen and Chris (Dick) Klemens.

On Oct. 1, 1983, he married his wife of 32 years, Dorothy. Together they lived a life of faith so when the Lord called, he was ready.
