Ag leader Papcke dead at 81

Charles Papcke, a Sugar Creek Town Board supervisor, died Aug. 20. He was 81.

Papcke, a life-long Walworth County resident, was deeply involved in the agriculture community.

He was to be honored this year as one of the Walworth County Fair's outstanding seniors.

Papcke hosted the first Walworth County Dairy Breakfast in June 1977.

A barn fire in 1974 displaced the family's dairy herd, but despite the setback, Papcke and his family rebuilt their dairy operation.
