Jacob “Jake” W. Burish, 88, of Clintonville passed away Tuesday afternoon, June 18, 2019, at the Greentree Health & Rehabilitation Center in Clintonville.

Jacob was born on April 5, 1931, in the Town of Spruce, Oconto County to the late Jacob J. and Anna (Tienor) Burish. He attended grade school in the Town of Spruce and graduated from Oconto Falls High School in 1948. Jacob farmed locally until he moved to Two Rivers in 1952 where he worked for Mirro Aluminum for over six years. In April 1959 he moved back up north where he bought a farm in the Town of Underhill, Oconto County; farming there for the next 32 years. Jacob sold the farm in 1991 and shortly after moved to Clintonville where he worked for FWD Seagrave as a security guard until his retirement in 1996. If you knew Jacob, you knew he had the gift of gab. One of his favorite topics was religion. He was a member of St. Rose Catholic Church in Clintonville where he served as an usher for a period of time.

Survivors include his brother Donald (Mary) Burish, Kaukauna, sister Emma Burish, Shawano, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and acquaintances.
