A celebration of his life will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26, 2020, at Appleyard’s Home for Funerals in Rice Lake, Wis.

In lieu of flowers, memorials would be appreciated to the Barron County Domestic Abuse Program or the Wisconsin Crime Victim Compensation Program.

The family encourages everyone to wear a mask.
