Bizer, Harold D. (2 OCT 1928 - 22 FEB 2019)

Harold D. Bizer, 90, of Medford, passed away quietly at home on Friday, February 22, 2019 under the care of his loving family and Hope Hospice.

He was born on October 2, 1928 to Julius and Jennie (Neuendorf) Bizer. He attended Mathey School, graduated from Medford High School in 1946, and attended River Falls University for 3 years. He began employment with Paul Michler and Son until his retirement. He served as an Army MP in Europe from 1952 until 1954. He returned home, resumed his employment, and married Joan Wesle in 1955. He worked hard as a dairy farmer until his son David took over the farm in 1993. He was a faithful member of Christ Lutheran Church.

Harold and Joan worked together as partners, farming and raising four children, Suzanne (George) Mathews of Medford, Linda (Rick) Sorensen of Onalaska, David (Dawn) Bizer of Medford, and Brian (Kristi) Bizer of Reno, NV. He cherished his 4 grandchildren, Dustin Mathews, Leigh (Mike) Henline, Jackie (Josh Gallhardt) Bizer, and Derrick Bizer, all of Medford. He was “Big Papa” to 3 great-grandchildren, Andrew, Madelyn, and Abigail Henline, who brought him joy and amusement.

Harold loved God, family, and country. He believed in and enjoyed hard work, all things mechanical, historical, and nature. He enjoyed fishing with his dog “Tipper”, attending auctions, garage sales, and 3rd Tuesday lunches with his dear friends. He was still able to beat his love, Joan, at Rummy at least half of the time. He will be greatly missed for his ability to fix anything and willingness to help anyone at any time.

A memorial service for Harold will take place at 11:00 AM on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at Christ Lutheran Church in Abbotsford, with Pastor Donald Bruce officiating. Burial will take place at Medford Evergreen Cemetery I at a later date. Visitation will take place on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 at Hemer Funeral Home – Medford Chapel from 4:00 PM until 7:00 PM. Visitation will continue at Christ Lutheran Church on Thursday, February 28, 2019 from 10:00 AM until the time of service at 11:00 AM.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations in Harold’s name may be given to Christ Lutheran Church in Abbotsford or the High Ground.

Hemer Funeral Service of Medford and Rib Lake has been entrusted with arrangements.
