Frank Wierleski

Frank “Bud” Wierleski, 75, died June 7, 2011, in Seattle.

He was born June 13, 1935, in Enumclaw and spent his boyhood on the family farm in Enumclaw with his parents Frank and Gunda, along with his sisters Gloria and Betty. He graduated from Enumclaw High School in 1955 and was known as a powerful football player. He moved to Greenwater in the 1960s with his wife Joan to raise his three boys and lived there until his death. He loved the outdoors and was a formidable hunter throughout his life.

He spent 32 years as a snow removal specialist and helped open Chinook Pass every year.

He is survived by his wife Joan Wierleski; sons Gary, Michael and Kenneth; and five grandchildren.

A service took place Sunday, June 19, at the Greenwater Community Center.
