Gary A. Nienow, age 72, of the town of Frankfurt, died unexpectedly at home Wednesday evening, September 14, 2011.

Gary was born March 10, 1939, on the family farm in the town of Frankfurt, a son of Herbert and Julia (Gehrke) Nienow. He was a graduate of Colby High School.

Gary worked beside his parents on their town of Frankfurt dairy farm until 1978 when they sold the farm.
