Greg Beltrone, 53, passed away Monday, Dec. 3, 2018 as the result of an automobile accident.
Born July 18, 1965 in Appleton, to Bob and Laverne Beltrone, he graduated from Fort Atkinson High School in 1983. He then joined the United States National Guard and served for three years while living in Alvin, Tx. Later, he moved to Coleman where he worked for Krueger Construction and then Waupaca Foundry for 20 years.
