Wilmer H. Pawlowski, age 86, passed away Sunday, August 18, 2013 at the McCone County Health Center in Circle, Montana.
Wilmer was born on February 10, 1927, in Alpena, South Dakota, the son of Leonard & Lydia (Bartels) Pawlowski. At a very young age he lost his mother and was then adopted and raised by Irene (Reinemer) Pawlowski. Wilmer was about one year old when he, along with his older brother Howard and their parents moved to Circle, Montana. Wilmer grew up in Circle and graduated from Circle High School in 1945.
He married Nora Nagle on June 11, 1951 at the First Lutheran Church in Circle. They farmed, raised both sheep and cattle, and also owned and operated JJ's Bar & Grill until they retired.
Wilmer enjoyed trips to rodeos such as Pocatello, Idaho; Houston, TX and the NFR in Las Vegas. He also enjoyed going to Laughlin and Prairie Nights where he would try his luck at the machines. When getting around got too tough, he enjoyed the mobility of his scooter he could rent. Sometimes you would find him out cruising the parking lot.
Wilmer is survived by his wife Nora, his brothers Wayne (Darlene) Pawlowski and Wendell (Mary) Pawlowski all of Circle, his brothers and sisters- in- law include Jim & Irene Siedel, Al & Helen Stirman and John & Ann Nagle. Wilmer is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and very good friends.
Wilmer was preceded in death by his parents Leonard & Lydia Pawlowki and step-mother Irene Pawlowski, his two brothers: Howard & Larry Pawlowski and two sisters in law: Laurel and Edie Pawlowski.
