Roger W. Lynch

December 22, 1932 — October 12, 2019

Roger W. Lynch, age 86, of Potosi, WI, passed away Saturday, October 12, 2019, at Heritage Senior Living Community in Middleton, WI. He was born in Potosi on December 22, 1932, the son of Arthur and Ardella (Steffens) Lynch. Roger attended Potosi Grade School and graduated from Potosi High School before going on to continue his education at UW-Platteville. Roger served his country in the U.S. Army as a military policeman in Korea, followed by working his entire career as a draftsman at People’s Natural Gas. He was a lifelong member of St. Thomas Catholic Church in Potosi and of the Berg-Averkamp VFW Post 5276. Roger married Mary Jane Kaiser on October 14, 1961. He loved supporting his daughters and grandchildren by never missing a sporting event and traveling all over to cheer them on. He had a passion for baseball and fast-pitch softball, and was an avid fan of all the Wisconsin sports teams: The Packers, Badgers and Brewers. Roger also enjoyed hunting and working outside in his yard, but his greatest joy was spending time with his family.

Roger is survived by his daughters: Kelly (Howard Hartmann) Ames, and Barbie (Mark Keating) Lynch; three grandchildren: Nathan Ames, Abigail Ames, and Celeste Keating; four sisters: Darlene Loeffelholz, Donna (Al) Leibfried, Evelyn (Ken) Leibfried, and Connie (Tom) Loeffelholz; a sister-in-law, Karen Lynch; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Roger was preceded in death by his brothers: Burnell and Dale “Chuck” Lynch; a sister-in-law, Velma Lynch; and a brother-in-law, Charles Loeffelholz.
