Kenneth “Ken” Grover Suehring was born November 11, 1934 in the Township of Grant, Shawano County, son to the late Frederick & Lydia (Hass) Suehring. He graduated from Tigerton High School with the class of 1952, and attended U.W. River Falls for about 2 years. Ken served his country by enlisting in the U.S. Army in September of 1953, and was a small arms instructor at Fort Benning. He later traveled to Germany, where he drove staff vehicles for officers; he was honorably discharged in November of 1956. Ken was united in marriage to Dorothy M. Kuschel on February 15, 1959 at St. Martin Lutheran Church, Clintonville, where the couple remained long-time members. After working at the F.W.D. in Clintonville for a short time, Ken was hired by the Clintonville Post Office. He was a mail carrier within the city for about 10 years, and then started carrying mail on the rural routes until his retirement in 1987, after 33 years. Ken served as a former mayor of the City of Clintonville, and was also a past president of the Wisconsin Rural Letter Carriers Association. He loved golf, Trout fishing, and deer hunting. Ken and Dorothy also like to try their luck at the casinos. He took joy in looking after his immaculate lawn and yard, as well as his flower and vegetable gardens.
