During the month of February, The Wrentham Times is celebrating the life of Ernie Schaaf. He was a 24-year old Wrentham fighter who died tragically 80 years ago. His death devastated a family, broke the hearts of a community, and left questions on how such a tragedy could happen. It is an American story about a Wrentham man few know and even fewer remember.
To commemorate his life, The Wrentham Times will publish a series of articles on the boxer culminating with a presentation at Fiske Public Library on February 13th, at 7 pm. Click Fallen & Forgotten: The Ernie Schaaf Story to read the first installment.
