Obituary for Wilbert J. "Bill" Haller

Wilbert J. “Bill” Haller passed away on June 28th, 2017. He was born on August 2nd, 1926 on the family farm in Plain, Wisconsin (Franklin Township). He married Margaret Ganser on July 11th, 1951 at St. Norbert’s Catholic Church in Roxbury, Wisconsin and had 11 children.
At the age of 15, he worked at Marklein’s Quarry producing agricultural lime and delivering it to local farmers. In 1946, Bill started working for Edward Kraemer & Sons as a driller and a blaster. He worked in quarries throughout Wisconsin and parts of Michigan. In 1958, Bill and Margaret moved their young family to Shakopee, Minnesota when Kraemer’s opened the Burnsville quarry. Bill predominantly worked in the quarry but at times was hired out by area contractors to drill and blast bedrock at various jobsites. Bill established a very good reputation in the region for his blasting expertise.
In 1990, after 44 years with Ed Kraemer & Sons, Bill retired. In retirement Bill enjoyed his many children and grandchildren and was always happy to socialize at family gatherings. He also enjoyed traveling, fishing, scrapping metals, and playing cards.
