Mr. Wolding founded H.O. Wolding Inc. in 1935 where he started a single-man milk route and made it grow into a large dry van truckload company with more than 320 trucks today. Trucking news platform, CDLLife, reported Herbert’s passing last week.
LongeviQuest also confirmed that Herbert Wolding passed away on 17 November 2023 at the age of 111 years old. At the time of his death, he was oldest-validated living man in Wisconsin and in the whole United States.
