Allen “Pete” Niemuth, age 87, Manawa, went to his heavenly home on Thursday, December 4, 2014 at St. Joseph Residence, New London.
He was born on May 8, 1927 in the Town of Dupont, son of the late Olto and Olga (Hufmeister) Niemuth. On June 2, 1950, he was united in marriage to Illa Bock. He was the owner of a trucking business for 48 years and also a part-time employee for the Town of Union mowing ditches. Pete enjoyed fishing, hunting, the Brewers and Packers; he actually attended the “Ice Bowl” in 1967. He was also known as “Symco’s Best” for his horseshoe throwing ability. Spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought him great joy. He was also a longtime member of St. Mark Church, Symco.
