Belton "Poppa" Bihm, 70, passed away on Sunday, February 6, 2011 in an area hospital.
Mr. Bihm was a retired farmer, a U.S. Army Veteran and he loved to work with his hands. His grandchildren thought he could fix anything, and everyone who knew him, knew he could. His love for fishing was only rivaled by his love for his wife. He was a loving husband, father and "Poppa". His faith in God was the most important thing in his life.
