Richard W. ‘Dick’ Leistiko

Richard W. ‘Dick’ Leistiko Dick Leistiko of Town of Genesee died Saturday, September 24, 2016, at the age of 65 years. He was born in Waukesha, the son of Rayfield and Charlotte Leistiko.

Dick married the love of his life, Vicki E. (nee Nuetzel), on May 22, 1971. He owned and operated Lake Country Fabricators with Vicki since 1992. Dick was an avid outdoorsman; hunting with gun and bow, even trapping at a younger age. He enjoyed going up north to his cabin in the woods and he could tell a story like no one else. Dick was a very generous man, willing to help others at a drop of a hat. Most of all, he loved spending time with family, especially his grandchildren.

Dick will be sadly missed by his sons Robert (Jenny) Leistiko of Lake Mills and Randy (Erica) Leistiko of Waukesha; grandchildren Ray, Riley, Rogan, Russell, Megan, Ricky and Evelyn; and sisters Sandy (Ted) Krauss, Linda Salazar, Deb Neutzel and Laurie (Lance) Brobst. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Dick was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Vicki; and brother-in-law Gene.
