Obituary for James L. Heise
James L. Heise, 50 of Oconto, passed away April 14, 2008 at Froedtert Memorial Hospital, Milwaukee. James was born March 10, 1958 in Oconto to Robert and Viola (Roland) Heise.

James was always happy riding around the country side in his red cattle truck, visiting with farmers, picking up cattle and calves. One of his great joys was visiting the fellow cattle dealers at the Kuehne and Bonduel livestock yards. James loved taking a ride on his Harley, visiting with friends and playing with his dog Shadow. He enjoyed going to the horse pulls at the county fairs.
