He then joined the U.S. Army and served a tour in Vietnam in numerous capacities as a UH-1 helicopter crew chief. He earned the Army Commendation Medal before being honorably discharged at the end of 1972.
He returned to Wausau and went to work for local businesses, such as General Telephone and Wausau Homes.
He was married to Cindy Martin in 1978.
He graduated from North Central Technical Institute in 1982 with degrees in robotics, electronics and laser technology. He then moved to Eau Claire to work at Cray Research Inc. in Chippewa Falls, making contributions in building the world’s fastest Cray Supercomputer.
After his work at Cray, he and his wife started three Rocky Rococo restaurants in Stevens Point, Wausau and Brooklyn Park, Minn.
He learned much of his handyman work from his grandfather Rudolph Ramseier and longtime friend Jack Brandt. In the last several years, he helped his daughter Maria and son-in-law Chris build their farm into a long-term establishment on the land they share in Custer.
