Nicholas Minor

     Nicholas “Nick” D. Minor, 73, of Granton died Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at the Marshfield Medical Center in Marshfield. 

     Nicholas Dale Minor was born Oct. 12, 1948, in Marshfield, the son of Wallace and Opal (Knapp) Minor. He attended Pittsville area schools and was united in marriage to Nancy O’Keefe. Nick worked as a heavy equipment operator for most of his life. For 20 years, he worked for Heuer Bros. Construction out of Dexterville, and he retired from Mashuda Contractors out of Princeton in 2011 at the age of 65. Nancy died Oct. 6, 1996, and recently, Nick married his longtime friend and partner, Nancy Kane.

     Nick was a member of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 139. He loved hunting and fishing and keeping his yard perfectly groomed. He enjoyed watching the Brewers and Packers and had seen every episode of Gunsmoke 500 times over. Nick had a keen sense of humor, and those that knew him were well aware of this.

     He is survived by his wife, Nancy; two sons, Gary (Peggy Van Gorden) Minor and Eric “Arthur” Minor, both of Granton; two grandchildren, Tara and Bill Minor, both of Granton; four siblings, Pat (Marlene) Minor of Pittsville, Susan (Wally) Freund of Marshfield, Kevin Minor of Pittsville and Terry (Sandy) Minor of Wisconsin Rapids.

     He was preceded in death by his first wife, Nancy; a son, Jon Minor in 2007; his parents; and a sister, Gail Minor.
