Robert was born April 11, 1945, in Brainerd, the son of Victor and Margaret (Nelson) Wise. After school, Robert was drafted and served in Vietnam as a sharp shooter. He enjoyed his solitude and peaceful quiet time - especially on long drives. Although he could sometimes be a bit of a curmudgeon, he always smiled when playing catch with his daughter and niece. He will be dearly missed.
He is survived by his daughter, Michelle Wise; grandchildren, Kaitlyn Rose Graham Jacob Robert Graham; niece, Misty (Billy High) Peterson; great-nieces, Brittany (Casey) Ladouceur, Bailey Peterson and Kayden Peterson; and great-great-niece, Braelynn Jares. He was preceded in death by his sister, Patricia Wise and his parents.
