Thomas Jefferson Death, Obituary – Frank E. Kyes, who lived in Bloomer and was 83 years old when he passed away on Monday, October 24, 2022, was able to pass away peacefully in the environment of his own house. On February 14, 1939, in the community of Cadott, the idea of Frank Kyes being conceived by his parents, Howard and Drusilla (Dugal), came to fruition. On October 24, 1964, Frank and Nancy Kliner married husband and wife after exchanging vows at the St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in Cooks Valley. The ceremony took place on that same day. During the length of Frank’s 33-year career at Colfax High School, during which he also served as the head basketball coach for a significant amount of that period, Frank was employed in the classroom as a teacher.
Frank didn’t know what he wanted to do with his life until he was on the golf field. It wasn’t until he had spent the years 1964–1980 as the manager of the Bloomer Golf Course that he was able to fulfil his lifelong dream of building an 18-hole golf course near his hometown of Cadott. This dream was realised with the construction of Whispering Pines. He was the president of the Chippewa Valley Golf Association (CVGA) for about 40 years, during which time he was honoured to be inducted into the hall of fame of the Chippewa Valley Golf Association (CVGA) in 2017. Bowling, coaching, and simply hanging out with his loved ones and close friends were some of the activities that he enjoyed doing in his leisure time the most.
The following are some of the characteristics of Frank that his wife of 58 years will miss the most after his passing: Nancy; son: Richard Kyes of Altoona; daughter: Michelle (Patrick) McCaffrey of Altoona; five grandchildren: Jeremy (Brooke) Poirier, Justin (Courtney) Poirier, Janessa (Austin Virnich) Poirier, Elyse McCaffrey and Travis (Stephanie) Peterson; three great grandchildren; brother: Charles Kyes of Safety Harbor, Florida and numerous nieces and nephew Before he did, his mother and father, as well as his sister Marlene Gustafson and brother Lauren Kyes, all went away. His parents and his siblings all passed away before he did. A later date has been set for the funeral ceremonies that will be held for close friends and family.
