Fred Wiese, formally of Loring and Malta, was born February 14, 1948, to Fred and Grace Wiese. He passed away January 26, 2022, of cancer, at his home in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
He married Sue Kesler, and to this union two children were born, Chris and Cammi. They later divorced.
He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Velma Jean, and brother-in-law, Tony Ferrari. He is survived by his brothers Melvin and Wayne, sisters Dorie (Tony) Ferrari, Thelma (Ed) Mcmaster and Vicki Wiese, along with many nieces, nephews, cousins, and grandson Ashton Simpson.
Fred was a Vietnam veteran, serving his tour of duty at Ben Hoa Air Base. Upon returning to the states, he spent his time working for Fisher Industries in construction and long-haul trucking for Systems Transport. He also was an independent trucker for the last several years, which fulfilled his lifelong dream of owning his own truck. He would haul anything that would fit on a flat bed trailer. In his travels he made countless friends and will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Rest in peace, Fred.
