Carl (Skip) W. Wolfgram, 67, of Suamico, passed away Wednesday, Feb. 22 with family by his side.
Born Dec. 12, 1949, to the late Carl and Arlene (Miller) Wolfgram, Sr., he grew up in Wabeno and graduated from high school there. He served in the United States Army until an honorable discharge in 1972. He took pride in working as a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service until his retirement.
Until his passing, he kept in touch with business owners and customers on his route for many years, of whom some he became close friends with.
He enjoyed fishing, hunting, riding motorcycles and was a Packers fan and never missed watching a game. He found joy in anticipating the birth of his son, Jason's twins and his daughter, Michelle's wedding and visiting his three grandchildren (Tessa, Trista and Emma). He was proud knowing his son-in-law, Donny, was following in his footsteps in a career with the United States Postal Service.
Survivors include his children, Stephanie (Donny) Harju of Suamico, Michelle Wolfgram and James Koehler of Bellevue and Jason (Kiara) Wolfgram of Little Suamico; three grandchildren with two twin girls on the way; his children's mother, Deb (Thurow) Wolfgram of Howard, formerly of Peshtigo, who held a special place in his heart; a sister, Sandy (Karl) Mason of Cecil; nieces; nephews; extended family and friends.
