Lyle “Butch” Weiss Jr. age 77 of Hudson WI, formerly of Roseville MN, Sarasota FL and Webster WI, passed away Friday, February 1, 2019. Butch was born on April 19, 1941 in St. Paul, MN to Barbara and Lyle Weiss Sr. A 1959 graduate of St. Thomas Academy, he attended Michigan State University completing his Food Distribution Administration degree in 1963.
