Roy J. Woller

February 21, 1920 — April 13, 2016

Roy John Woller, Age 96 of Lake Tomahawk, Wisconsin, passed away early Wednesday April 13, 2016 in his home with his family by his side. Roy was born in Merrill, on February 21, 1920 to the late Paul and Minnie (Kleinschmidt) Woller. He served in the United States Army during World War II, and later met his beautiful wife.

He met his beautiful wife Leona Barney in Merrill. They married May 22, 1948 in the Marathon County town of Berlin. They would have been married for 68 years next month. He was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather.

Roy worked Superior Electric (Michels) as a Lineman Foreman for 39 years, where he met many lifelong friends. After retiring, the couple moved from Kaukauna to Lake Tomahawk where he enjoyed the quiet of the woods.

Roy loved his tractors which he used well into his 90's. Roy enjoyed fixing, building, wood working, and engineering anything. While he was building, he was always cyphering and “taking two” for an Old Milwaukee. Roy loved to share his vast knowledge to anyone who would listen, and enjoyed sharing his life stories.

He loved making up jokes and sayings of his own to make everyone laugh. Roy always said he was “a clean cut Christian kid from the country.” Roy loved to polka, reading the newspaper, and enjoying a sweet treat.

Roy will be greatly missed by his loving wife: Leona Woller of Lake Tomahawk; two children: Rodney (Darlene) Woller of Gresham and Cindy Hoffman (Pat DuFrane) of Kaukauna. His grandchildren are: Heather (Ryan) Siebers, Holly Hoffman, Timothy Woller, and Stacey (Kevin) Krake; seven great-grandchildren: Alexis Hoffman, Kalli Hoffman, Jorden Siebers, Hunter Siebers, Mason Krake, Jessie Krake, and Adam VanDenBogart (Kortney) and their daughter Braylie. There are two sisters-in-law: Jackie Pahls and Frances Woller. Roy was preceded in death by his parents and his siblings; Max (Corliss) Woller, Rosela (Raymond) Block, Ariline (Elder) Raasch, and Lavern Woller.

The funeral service for Roy will be held at 11:00 AM on Monday, April 18, 2016 at BETHANY EV. LUTHERAN CHURCH, 124 W. 10th Street in Kaukauna, with Rev. Walter Steinbach officiating. Full military honors will follow the service, and entombment will follow at Highland Memorial Park. Family and friends are invited to gather at the church on Monday morning from 9:00 AM until the hour of the service.

The family would like to give thanks to the many special caregivers who made it possible for Roy to stay in his own home during his illness. We will forever remember your kindness.
