Leroy Christian

October 19, 1951 — October 19, 2021


Leroy J. Christian passed away on Wednesday, July 7, 2021 at Aspirus Hospital in Wausau.  Leroy was the son of Eugene and Hilda (nee Genrich) Christian, born on March 25th, 1951.  Leroy worked on his parents’ farm on County Trunk F, Marathon County, until his father sold the cows and farm sometime preceding his parents’ deaths.  He graduated from Wausau High School in 1969.

Leroy then worked for the Krueger family on their ginseng farms for many years.

Leroy had a good sense of humor, and spent many hours with friends and family, always cracking jokes and flirting with waitresses.  Leroy played dartball and enjoyed the company of his friends.

Leroy was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents, and by his sister, Suzanne (Christian) Christoffersen.  He is survived by many cousins and their children, and by a niece and nephew.

A graveside service will be held for family and friends at 2:00 PM on Friday, July 16th, 2021 at Town of Berlin Cemetery.  Helke Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements; you may sign our family guestbook at
