Leonard Wild, of the town of Antigo, died Saturday, June 20, 2020, at his home. He was 92 years old. He was born on June 5, 1928, in the town of Rolling, a son of Joseph and Mary (Steber) Wild. He married Mary Sikora on September 11, 1948, at St. Mary Catholic Church, Antigo and celebrated 71 years of marriage in 2019. She survives.

Leonard attended Fernwood grade school in the town of Rolling and the Vocational School in Antigo. He was employed by Kraft Cheese plant in Antigo and in 1949 began farming with his father-in-law, Lukas Sikora in the town of Antigo.

In the 1960's, Leonard took over ownership of the farm. Several additions were made to the original farm and in 1970, it was incorporated and known as "Wild Seed Farms, Inc." Leonard operated the farm until his retirement, specializing in raising foundation seed potatoes. He was a member of the Wisconsin Potato Improvement Association. Taking care of the family farm was his pride and joy. The farm was later owned by his son Tom and now his grandson Dan.

Leonard continued to work on the farm except for the winters spent in Mesa, Arizona.

Leonard and Mary enjoyed bringing up their family of seven children. They enjoyed their travels throughout the United States and also to Australia, Canada and Europe.
