Herb was born July 7, 1935, in Sussex, Wis., to Mathias and Anna (Eisenschenk) Theisen. He graduated from Adams-Friendship High School in 1953 and joined the service in February of 1955. When he returned home, he went to work at his father’s lumberyard. He married Kay Babcock on Sept. 27, 1958, in Adams, Wis.

Throughout his life, Herb dedicated himself to serving his community. In addition to owning and operating Theisen’s Lumber with his family, he built The Corner Pump in 1987. He was a charter member of the Point Bluff Sportsmen’s Club, a member of the Wisconsin Conservation Congress for 41 years, a board member of the M&I Bank system, chairmen of the Board of the Adams County Housing Authority, and an Emergency Fire Warden for 30 years.

When he wasn’t working, Herb could often be found hunting, gardening, fishing, trapping, or cutting wood. He passed on his love for the outdoors to his children and grandchildren, all of whom brought him the greatest pride and joy in life. He will be remembered most as a man who loved his family and his wife of 61 years.
