Maynard Wilber

Maynard A. Wilber, 87, of Keshena, passed away Monday, June 17, 2019, in Shawano. Without a doubt, heaven welcomed God’s greatest bulls—-er.

He was born Aug. 26, 1931, in Keshena to the late Franklin Sr. and Alta (Sturm) Wilber. Maynard was a U.S. Marine who served in Charleston, South Carolina, during the Korean War. He worked for the Menominee County Highway Department, owned Wilber Brother’s Construction with his brother Gene, worked as a logger on the Menominee Indian Reservation and finished his career as a truck driver for Dave Wilber Logging.

Maynard was proud of his Menominee ancestry and enjoyed the Menominee forests, lakes and streams. He loved nothing more than sitting in his garage watching traffic on state Highway 47 and telling stories with Bruce, Edwin, George, Menot, Bing, Snookie and Verlyn. Occasionally, one of the stories would be true.
