Dennis David (Bub) Logghe born June 27, 1942 in Glenwood City, WI, passed away on January 13, 2013 at Oakwood Villa, Altoona, WI.
Bub was recently a resident of Boyceville, WI where he worked independently as a logger and salvage trader. Bub spent many years in Columbia Falls, MT, where he was an independent logger with his company B&S Logging. Bub loved the mountains and spent much time hunting and fishing, and frequently worked as a guide for hunting groups. Before moving to Montana, Bub worked in the construction trades in Wisconsin and Minnesota as a carpenter; he was proud of some of the buildings he helped build – apartment buildings in the Twin Cities, the Alma Power Plant, and the Glenhaven Nursing Home in Glenwood City, to name a few. Bub owned a gas station on Main Street in Glenwood City in the mid 60’s. He also worked in manufacturing in Milwaukee at the Briggs & Stratton Company. For many years he had a business traveling throughout the Midwest trimming hooves and dehorning cattle. Bub was a horseman, cowboy, trickster (he loved practical jokes), and loved to tell a story, he could always find an audience (willing or unwilling). Bub loved his dog companions; most recently Dawg (Shep in Montana) – they were always at his side and ready to perform.
