Robert Francis Wiedeman, "Bob", 81, left this world and went to his heavenly home on February 1, 2020. Bob was born in Rhinelander, WI on April 7, 1938. His early years were spent on the family farm in Rhinelander, WI until he served in the Army in Germany from 1956-1959.

Bob and Faith moved to Manhattan, MT in 1972, where Bob started the weld shop for Gallatin Homes. After leaving Gallatin Homes, Bob owned Tony's saw shop in Livingston and Belgrade and B&W Welding in Belgrade. Bob was an active member of the Lion's club, holding the office of Zone Chairman. He enjoyed fishing and hunting and making sausage. Bob will be remembered for his generosity and always being the first to help anyone.
