Leo John Lisser Notice
Lisser, Leo John Of Janesville, WI and Menomonee Falls, WI. March 20, 1921 to March 27, 2014. Leo John Lisser, 93, passed away quietly on March 27, 2014, at his residence in Huntington Place, Janesville, surrounded by his family. Born to Alfred and Bertha Lisser in Monroe, WI on March 20, 1921, Leo was the second of three children, including brother Otto (deceased) and sister Martha, who survives him. Leo felt the call of duty as the U.S. prepared for WWII. After graduation (Monroe HS, 1939) he enlisted in the Army, shipped out to Texas, and became pharmacist to the 30th Evacuation Hospital, a "MASH" unit that would advance with the troops through the jungles of the South Pacific through the end of the war. Leo owned and operated Wauwatosa Camera Shop for 50 years, providing cameras, equipment, supplies and finishing services to professionals and amateurs alike. Leo and his wife, Mary Lou, took great pride in their family, and maintained their membership at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Milwaukee throughout their lives. Leo is survived by those two sons, Robert J. Lisser (Karen Budahn Lisser) of Janesville, and Charles S. Lisser (Dr. Jennifer Westbay) of Santa Monica, CA; grandchildren Stephen and Max; and numerous nieces and nephews in Wisconsin and around the country. He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary Lou, in 2005. A Celebration of his life was held at the Huntington Place, in Janesville. A second memorial will take place at the family cemetery in Colfax, TX at a later time. Expressions of sympathy may be made at the website: schneiderfuneraldirectors.com In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to ECHO (food and housing assistance in Janesville) or Agrace Hospice.
