Jack Tackman

Jack Tackman has been a lifelong resident of Wisconsin. He spent the first five years of his life on his grandparents’ dairy farm and the next eleven years in the small town of Nichols. The summers of 1952 and 1953 found him working on this same dairy farm. It was a small dairy operation with only nine milking cows. At that time, he learned a lot about dairy farming. During his adult life, he was foreman of a construction crew working for Shiocton Lumber where he built more than one hundred houses, numerous barns, and outbuildings. In his later years, Jack and his brother Clint bought and operated Shiocton Lumber. Their main focus was constructing farm buildings. They really enjoyed working for farmers.
