Roy was born Feb. 26, 1924, in Grafton to William and Anna Wegner. He was the only son and had five sisters. He married Doris on Feb. 8, 1947, at St. Joseph’s Church and they continued to reside in Grafton. Following his father’s illness, he took over the family farm and was a dairy farmer until the 1970s. After farming, he owned a waste management company in the town of Grafton until his retirement.
Roy will be remembered for his love of gardening, and he especially enjoyed his numerous flower beds. He was an avid sports fan, who followed the Packers, Brewers and Badgers. He enjoyed the outdoors and spent many holidays on family trips to Tomahawk. His favorite dog, Chewy, held a special place in his heart. As a dairy farmer he was a supporter of the 4-H and never missed attending an Ozaukee County Fair throughout his life.
A memorial service will be held at Mueller Funeral Home in Grafton on Saturday, July 10, at noon. Family will receive friends at the funeral home from 10 a.m. until the time of the service. In lieu of flowers the family wishes for donations to the Ozaukee County 4-H Foundation.
