Town of Poy Sippi - Roger William Krueger, age 74 of the Town of Poy Sippi, passed away peacefully early Wednesday morning, June 13, 2018 at Juliette Manor in Berlin, following a battle with cancer.

Roger was born May 16, 1944 in Berlin, a son of Carl and Anita (Buchholtz) Krueger. He married Nora A. Strehlow on March 1, 1964 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Auroraville. Nora, his wife of 54 years survives.

Roger lived his entire life on the family farm in the Town of Poy Sippi.

He was a 1962 graduate of the Berlin High School. He had a wonderful, dry sense of humor. He loved to tell stories, and became quite animated when telling some of them. His life and work were tied to the land, which was homesteaded in 1884. The Fifth Generation of Kruegers is now living on this land.

Roger was a HARD worker. He not only operated a dairy farm, but also was a milk hauler, logger and sawyer. (His woods were his passion.) He collected tractors and chiming clocks since his youth. He was a life-long, faithful, active member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Auroraville. He served as church trustee and financial secretary of Immanuel Lutheran Church. His great-grandfather was one of the founding members of the church.

Roger was a life-member of Symco U.T.C. (Union Thrashermen's Club), and a member of the North Central Wisconsin Steam Show of Edgar.

Roger is survived by his wife, Nora; 2 sons, Roger C, "Butch" (Barbara) Krueger of New London and Scott (Brenda) Krueger of Poy Sippi, and a daughter, Karla (Raymond) Powell of Greenleaf; 6 grandchildren, Paul (Tanya) Hintzke, Katie (Chris) Smith, Samuel (Keena) Krueger, Jessica Powell, Elizabeth Krueger, and Isaiah Krueger; and 2 great-grandchildren, Mila and Gage Hintzke; and a brother, Raymond (Joyce) Krueger of Redgranite. Roger is also survived by his in-laws, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many good friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Anita Krueger.

Funeral Services for Roger W. Krueger will be held Saturday, June 23rd at 11:00 A.M. at Immanuel Lutheran Church N2506 State Hwy. 49 in Auroraville (rural Berlin). The Rev. Bryan M. Beardsley, Pastor and the Rev. William E. Meier will officiate. Following these Services, Roger will be laid to rest on the family plot in the Poy Sippi Cemetery.
