Obituary: Roger F. Riemer

Roger F. Riemer, age 89, of Hilbert, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Monday, April 8, 2024 at St. Paul Home in Kaukauna.

Roger was born on December 2, 1934 on the home farm in the town of Rantoul, son of the late Martin & Margaret (Schroeder) Riemer.  He was a graduate of Brillion High School, class of 1953.  Roger enlisted and served our country in the United States Army Airbourne Division in Special Unit.  On January 28, 1959, he married Delores “Blondie” Vosters at St. John Catholic Church in Little Chute. The couple celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary before Delores preceded him in death on February 18, 2014.  Roger worked at a number of places throughout his life while also owned and operated a dairy farm.  He started his career at the Canning Company in Brillion, worked fill in at Tecumseh, picked up shifts at Kasson Cheese, but mostly worked at the Brillion Iron Works on the BMD Shaker in Plant 2.  Roger was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Hilbert and Jacob Coppus American Legion Post 258 of Little Chute.  Roger enjoyed Packer games, cutting wood, playing cards, planting fields, side construction jobs, and spending time with his “Blondie.”  He was very precise and would always point out when a field row wasn’t quite straight.  But most of all, Roger loved spending time with his family.
