Robert “Bob” Joseph Roessler, age 69, passed away at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield, WI on March 8, 2022 due to multiple medical complications. He was born in River Falls, WI to Frank and Agnes Roessler on April 4, 1952. Bob faced many challenges throughout his life after contracting encephalitis when he was three years old. Bob spent some time in Northern Colony in Chippewas Falls, WI before moving to Noah’s ARK (Adult Residential Kare) in Greenwood, WI. Bob touched many people’s hearts with his mischievous grin and sparkling blue eyes. Bob loved to listen to polka music and in his younger days he never met a dessert he didn’t like!
