Welding Accident Takes Cashton Man's Life

(10/7/13) A former high school football standout in western Wisconsin died on Saturday -- the day he was supposed to get married.

  22-year-old Jacob Gronemus of Cashton was injured in a welding accident last Tuesday, with burns over 75-percent of his body.  He died late Saturday night -- one night after he was honored at his alma mater's high school football game.  Cashton players wore Gronemus' number-32 on their helmets.  And although Cashton beat Bangor 20-to-16, the final on the scoreboard read 32-32 as players from both teams gathered for a prayer.  T-shirts were sold to raise money for the Gronemus family.  Jacob graduated from Cashton in 2010.  His funeral will be held next Saturday in Middle Ridge.
