Obituary for Dennis R. Trapp

Dennis R. Trapp, age 72, lifelong resident of Arbor Vitae, WI passed away on Friday, August 5th at his home with his family by his side. Dennis was born on September 21, 1943 in Milwaukee, WI the son of Raymond and Mae (nee Harding) Trapp. Dennis attended AV-W Grade School, Lakeland Union High School and Houghton Tech for Sawyer school.
