November 23, 1929 — September 11, 2019

Grover was born November 23, 1929, the son of Otto and Leona (nee Rahn) Landwehr. He attended Lincoln-Erdman and Howards Grove schools, graduating in 1948. After high school, he served his country in the National Guard and the United States Army Signal Corp.

An avid Green Bay Packer fan, Grover also loved motorcycles, visiting Road America and the EAA, trips to steam engine and tractor shows, and spending time with his family.
