Howard Larry Krosinski, 70, of Oakdale, formerly of Humbird, died Sunday, July 19, 2015, at Tomah Memorial Hospital in Tomah.

Howard was born May 21, 1945, in Black River Falls to Frank and Joyce (Bailey) Krosinski. As a young man, Howard moved to Bozeman, MT, and worked for Pacific Hide and Fur. Through the years, he worked as a logger in Wisconsin, Montana and throughout the western United States. He returned to Wisconsin in the mid 1980s and settled in the Humbird area where he lived until March 2015, when he moved to Oakdale to be closer to family.

Howard enjoyed hunting, fishing, riding motorcycles and ATVs and tinkering with all types of machinery. He was always ready to help his neighbors and friends with whatever they needed, supplying wood or helping to fix something.
