Denny Drew is a native of Rice Lake and spent most of his life here except to attend to duty at Vietnam, and during the period he was posted at Fort Campbell, KY, and Fort Carson, CO. Danny is a hunter, and he was much involved in the sport. He would never want to miss the card night that happens at Willers cabin where friends and family gather to have fun. The group is a regular at Rice Lake, and they have hunted here for several years. Denny worked at the General Telephone and took early retirement.
He was not a person to idle away his time. He teamed with Lauren Hesebeck and sold Ford trucks and cars. Being a native of the place he excelled in his new profession. Denny is survived by sons Paul, Anthony and daughter Heather. A big family Denny was always the center of attraction for his bright smile and witty nature. He was always special and was the most expected member during family gatherings. Denny will be missed, and the emptiness can never be replaced. His sudden death at the Rice Lake Hunting spot where he was shot came as a shock to the community members.
May his soul rest in peace!
