Roger Dale Liss, 73, of Hatley, peacefully passed away August 23, 2021 surrounded by his family.
Roger was born in Wausau on March 29, 1948 to parents Chester and Barbara Liss. He graduated from Everest High School and enlisted in the United States Army. After serving his country, he began his trucking career in 1973. He loved trucking and racked up over 6,000,000 miles all over the United States with his canine companion Cooper by his side. No matter where you were in the US you could call Roger and get a good recommendation for food and cheap gas. After retiring from River Valley Express, you could find him riding his Harley, putzing around the house, enjoying the outdoors, cooking his famous pork chops, and fishing. If he could get your ear, he was well known for telling stories.
Roger is survived by his wife Kristi Liss; children Becky (Steve) Gebhart, Nicole Liss, Timothy Liss, Kylie “Mouse” Liss; grandchildren Ethan, Peyton, Austin, Tanner, Tarissa, Amicus; extended family; family pets; his close friends Mark, Mike and Big Jim. He is preceded in death by his parents and brother Richard Liss.
A funeral service will be held Thursday, September 2, 2021 at 3:00 PM at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, 1901 Kowalski Rd, Kronenwetter with a visitation beginning at 1:00 PM until the time of service. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family.
Our family wishes to especially thank, ICU nurse Jackie for her tender loving care. She was so kind and gentle and truly an angel sent from heaven.
