George A. Schreiber Sr., 86, died peacefully surrounded by family on Saturday, Dec. 11, 2021, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

George was born to Bernard and Hattie (Soucek) Schreiber on Aug. 19, 1935, in Milan on June 5, 1957, he married Carol Mierkey at St. Thomas Catholic Church in Milan.

George began his career as a lifelong dairy farmer at 13 with just one calf, farming for the better part of 50 years along with being an avid fisherman and hunter. He was a published author of short stories, poems and speeches, including (but not limited to) his role as the FFA State vice president. The rest of his writings were comprised of his farming, childhood and family that we and many others have and will continue to treasure. He also enjoyed numerous card games with family and friends.
