Vetrone, Edward L. (17 May 1953 – 11 April 2017)

Edward L. Vetrone, 63, of Alma Center passed away suddenly at his home April 11, 2017.

Edward Lee Vetrone, son of William and Vivian Vetrone, was born May 17, 1953, in Wisconsin Rapids. He graduated from Neillsville High School May 29, 1971. Growing up, Ed helped with his father’s milk route, and for three years after graduating, he worked with Gary Ruzic Construction out of Neillsville.

He married Cathy Schofield and to this union they had two daughters, Rebecca and Melissa. Ed later married Lori Reimer in 1986 in West Allis, and together they had their son, Andrew.

Ed worked 13 years for Gerald Nell, Inc, a general contractor in Brookfield. From 1993 to 1997, he worked for F. E. Concrete Inc., also of Brookfield. He then worked for Badger State Walls/Stigler Construction of Watertown.

He eventually returned to Alma Center, where he worked with his family at V-Trone Auto Service in Fairchild. He had also worked at Cain’s Orchard in Hixton, upon retiring.

Ed loved spending time with his family, especially his children and grandchildren. He had always enjoyed fishing, collecting hats, and all sports.

Ed will be dearly missed by his daughter, Melissa O’Brien (Ben Schoch) of Minneapolis; son Andrew Vetrone (Michael Fischer) of Minneapolis; three grandchildren, Peyton, Cash, and Koleigh; three brothers William Jr. (Jan) Vetrone of Merrillan, James (Audrey) Vetrone of Kalispell, MT, and Timothy Vetrone of rural Alma Center; a sister, Deborah (Mike) Laufenberg of Hixton; his nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
