     Roy R. Klessig, age 88, of Chilton, died on October 18, 2020, at Willowdale Nursing Home and Rehabilitation in New Holstein. He was born August 20, 1932, son of the late Elmer and Clara Klessig. 
     Through the New Hope Center in Chilton, Roy was able to work in many industries in the area, but his favorite job was sorting nuts and bolts.  He worked until his 83rd birthday before retiring. He was a happy-go-lucky fellow that loved wearing bib overalls and riding his bike all over Chilton. Any food he tried was his favorite, especially butterscotch candy. He collected watches, loved playing checkers, and enjoyed old-fashion movies and television. He was a fanatic about history and numbers, and he could recite every verse of every nursery rhyme. 
       Roy is survived by special friends, Byron and Judy Hacker.
       Roy was preceded in death by his parents, Elmer and Clara; and his siblings: Violet, Robert, and Lincoln.
       Private services have been planned. 
       A special thank you to Willowdale for all their kindness, care and compassion.  
Roy was always one of the happiest people I’ve known. He had a smile for everyone. Rest In Peace Roy.

The very first time I met Roy he was on a bus trip to see the Brewers play! We all had a great time at the game but the real fun for Roy was when the game was over. We all went back to the bus and when we got there, Roy was missing. A bus of college kids helped us look for him. I spoke with security and gave them a full description of Roy. Clothes, hat, glasses etc. 15 mins later they had him! We were so relieved. Guess where he was? Down on the infield taking it all in, how he managed to get past security and on to the field was beyond anything any of us could have imagined. But Roy had the time of his life! This is the best memory I have of Roy that I could share. May he Rest in Peace

Always enjoyed the rides home from the farm stopping by McDonald’s for something to eat before dropping him off. He always had great one liners! Oh ya!
