Wright - Cromwell News
By: Jennie K. Hanson, Pine Journal
Our community and area has been visited again by death. It seems they always come in threes, but this time it seems there is a death almost once a week. Our sympathy to all involved.
Larry Patrick, 68, of Cromwell died Sunday, April 21, 2013, at Villa Vista Senior Community-Cardinal Court in Cromwell. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, May 20, at Villa Vista. Burial will be in Round Lake Cemetery.
Richard Thomas Huhta, 65, of Cromwell died Friday, April 19, 2013, in St. Luke’s Hospital, Duluth. His funeral was held in Moose Lake on April 22. (This is not Richard L. “Dick” Huhta, the former Mayor of Cromwell.)
