Eugene Herbert Mehlberg was born October 26, 1937 in Shawano, WI, son to the late Fred & Irene (Haufe) Mehlberg. He graduated from Marion High School with the class of 1955 and joined the U.S. Air Force. After serving at McGuire Air Force Base, New Jersey, Eugene was honorably discharged in 1959, and moved back to the area.
