Gregory Joseph Kaiser, 14
Gregory Joseph Kaiser, age 14, of New Richmond, Wis., passed away suddenly Monday, Nov. 4.
He was born on Nov. 12, 1998.
Gregory had a strong catholic faith and was very active in church activities. He dearly loved his family and friends and loved to spend time with them. He had two older brothers, Kyle and Justin with whom he was very close. He admired his oldest brother Kyle and adored his brother Justin. He was excellent at math and loved all kinds of music and was in the New Richmond High School Choir. He was a great snowboarder and enjoyed to travel and was always open to an adventure.
Gregory was a very determined and gifted student who received a Student of the Month award in the New Richmond Middle School and maintained very good grades throughout all of his schooling. He was a bright young man who was active in several math competitions, enjoyed being involved in history and science fairs, and had participated in numerous sports such as wrestling, football, cross-country and track. He had a big bright smile and a huge heart. He was always ready to lend an ear, a helping hand, a laugh and most importantly, his time. Time for compassion, empathy and to love everyone around him and make a difference to all those he touched.
Gregory was a true blessing and gift from above that was given to us for much too brief of a time and will be missed beyond comprehension.
