LaVerne Rentz was early Wadena trucker
Big trucks and Wadena have always been synonymous. Between 1926 and 1994, some 71 semis did business in Wadena. The urge to get into trucking bit LaVerne Rentz soon after he was discharged from the Army in 1946.
On LaVerne's way to becoming the owner of a fleet of 18-wheelers, he worked a short time driving a feed mill out to farms, then owning the Wadena Feed Supply Store to help get on his feet.
