Foster Friess, a favorite son of Rice Lake whose generous donations over the years have greatly benefited the community, died Thursday and will be returned home for burial Monday after public services are held over the weekend in Arizona and Wyoming.

Tom Koser of Rice Lake remembers Friess well. They first worked together to transform the high school’s athletic complex into the Friess Family Rice Lake Community Campus. Koser approached Friess about donating to the project, and the philanthropist quickly jumped on board.
