Minnesota Chapter

Official State Chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame

Longtime Board of Director Bob Dettmer Retires

The Chapter honored Bob Dettmer who is retiring from the Minnesota Board of Directors after 16 great years of service! Bob also served the Minnesota House of Representatives, and had a great military background as he was deployed to Kuwait as an officer with the US Army Reserves. Minnesota Chapter president refers to Bob: as "A man of honesty, loyalty and integrity above reproach."

Bob's plaque also reads: "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have kept the faith!" 2 Timothy 4-7.

Bob has retired to The Villages in Florida! Bob and Colleen comes back to his Minnesota lake home during the summer, and hopefully we plan on seeing him in his advisory role the next two summers.

Our Mission: To honor the sport of wrestling by preserving its history, recognizing extraordinary individual achievements, and inspiring future generations
