Nov. 24, 2016 – West Bend, WI – This week while gathering tribute stories about Tom Strachota, Doug Devenport and Dan Fuge, there was a comment made about Fuge Hardware Co. when it was in downtown West Bend.


“Do you remember when the Fuge building was across the street,” said Todd Tennies from Tennies Ace Hardware.

We walked to the back of the store and Tennies pointed out the window. “It was across Main Street just to the south of Collin’s Deck Bar by Tony Jasen’s building.

“During Thanksgiving the Fuges would put two live turkeys in the window,” said Tennies.

That was a bit before my time. Does anybody remember that??

The comments about Fuge were prompted by the discussing regarding the death of Dan Fuge. See his obituary by clicking here.
