Warren Froelich Retiring

Posted: Updated:

32 years ago Warren Froelich came to Williams County to be the extension agent.

     He's been in that role ever since, and has helped a number of different farmers, 4H members, and anyone else who needed his help.

     But as they say, all good things must come to an end. Tomorrow is Warren's last day as the Williams County Extension Agent.

 Froelich started his career as an extension agent in 1967. 46 years later, he's retiring, and looking forward to spending more time working with his animals.

     "The first thing I'm looking forward to is being able to feed my cows this winter in the daylight," said Williams County Extension Agent Warren Froelich.

Because of his long work hours, Froelich couldn't feed his cows until 7 or 8 in the Winter. Before Froelich worked in Williams County, he was the Bowman County Extension agent. There he worked with 10-year-old Lavina Domigala.

     "He related very well to the kids. He worked a lot with us, with our chickens, the chickens is what we had for our 4H project, and my brothers had hogs," said 4H Leader Lavina Domagala.

Domagala now lives in Williston, and his the leader of her own 4H Club.

     "Growing up I don't think I probably would have stuck with 4H as long as I did and have, if it wouldn't have been for him getting me started," added Domagala.

Froelich says 4H has always been important to him, and that's evident when he is working with kids.

     "It very rewarding to see these youth, not that I'm totally responsible, but that I feel like I have some influence as to their outcome and their choices in life. I feel really good about that," Froelich added.

Ron Bingeman has been working with Froelich for more than 20 years, and says he has learned a lot during that time.

      "He has taught us to make the best better, I should say, as the 4H logo would stand for. He's going to be deeply deeply missed with the program," said Froelich's Co-worker Ron Bingeman.

Domagala says there is a lot she's going to miss about Froelich.

     "His work ethic, and his knowledge, he's very friendly," added Domagala.

Froelich says the time is right for him to retire, but it's going to be bitter sweet when he walks out the door for the last time.

     Froelich "My daily contact with people, and helping them solve some of their problems. I'm going to miss that," Froelich added.

Froelich's plan was to work in Williams County for about 20 years and head home, but wanted to stay because of the friendships he made here.
