Otto Waldbuesser, Menomonie…age 89, went home to his Lord on Friday, February 24, 2023. After living with congestive heart failure for over five years, Otto died at home surrounded by his loving family.

Otto’s focus his entire life was always on putting family first. His entire family –both immediate and extended– meant the world to him, and he was most satisfied with a day spent in their company whatever that may include. All of his other pursuits from hunting and fishing to traveling and piloting his Cessna 172–even tending to his treasured woodlands– took a backseat to his beloved family.

Memorial contributions may be made to Menomonie United Methodist Church (2703 Bongey Dr, Menomonie, WI 54751), Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association Inc., Forestry Leaders Scholarship Fund or a charitable organization of your choosing.
