Duane “Ottie” Benard Otness, age 71, of Buffalo passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 5, 2022, at the St. Cloud Hospital from the progressive illness of pulmonary fibrosis.
He was incredibly passionate about the sport of wrestling, having been a wrestler for Wayzata High School, where he graduated in 1969. He furthered that passion as the “voice” of Wright County Wrestling on KRWC radio for more than 25 years. Buffalo Wrestling was fortunate to have Ottie as part of the family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.
Longtime Buffalo High School Head Coach Gerry Bakke died peacefully on Friday, September 24. Coach Bakke was so much more than a coach and mentor, guiding high school teams and individuals to State in the 80s and 90s. He was the ultimate fan of wrestling and those who loved the sport. We wish to express our profound gratitude for sharing Gerry with his wrestlers and families over the years. We are all better humans for having been influenced by his passion, immense wrestling knowledge, and genuine kindness. May his memory be a blessing and his legendary stories live on forever!
