Robert John Biermann

March 6, 1951 — December 15, 2022

Robert John Biermann, 71, passed away peacefully on December 15, 2022, at his home in Ogema surrounded by his family. He was born to Donald (Wayne) and Sara "Sally" (Bruner) Biermann on March 6, 1951, in Phillips, WI.

John grew up in Ogema, WI and was a 1970 graduate of Prentice High School. Following graduation, he explored a few work options before he found his calling of carpentry work. He was employed by Wanke Builders of Medford in 1970 and worked there until his retirement. John married the love of his life, Darcy, on May 8, 1976. Together they built their home in Ogema, WI. John took great pride in building his bride a new home. John was a gifted wood worker and made several pieces for his wife, children, grandchildren and many families and friends. These pieces will be cherished for years to come. John loved to serve his community, and since 1983, he was a volunteer fireman, for the Ogema Volunteer Fire Department. During this time, he served as both Fire Chief and Assistant Fire Chief. John was an avid hunter, and what he enjoyed the most was spending time with his family and friends during these hunting excursions. He enjoyed taking his grandkids Kylie and Luke to sit in grandpa's nice warm hunting shack that he built. He took several hunting trips to Colorado that he shared with his son and son-in-law. John enjoyed the companionship of his special dog, "Auggie -Doggie" who made almost every trip with him during his treatments. Prior to coming home from the hospital, he shared that he had "a good life" he also used one of his famous quotes of "it could be worse". John lived his life that way and looked at what he was thankful for, knowing and trusting in his faith that he would have eternal life with his Creator. He was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Prentice.

He is survived by his wife, Darcy Biermann; children, Jesse (Shelby) Biermann of Ogema, Bobbie Jo (Ben) Orysen of Prentice, grandchildren, Kylie and Luke Orysen; siblings, Peggy (Robert) Pinsch of Medford and Liz (Mike) Mertens of Stanley, sister-in-law Eileen Biermann of Rib Lake, several nieces and nephews; and many other friends and family.
