Richard (Dick) Fredrick Roman II, 78, of Verona/ Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin, passed away peacefully on February 8, 2024. Born on October 9, 1945, in Sparta, WI, Dick was a proud son, brother, father, and grandfather. He was a loving and devoted family man who enjoyed helping his loved ones with home remodeling projects. Dick also had a passion for bowling and could often be found at the bowling alley on Wednesdays and Sundays.
Dick graduated from Monona Grove High School in 1963 and went on to have a successful career as a long-time elevator mechanic. He repaired elevators all over the Midwest, working for companies like Otis and Northwestern. His favorite saying when someone asked how work was going is that it “had its ups and downs.”
In his free time, Dick enjoyed gardening, playing cards at Ho Chunk and camping. He found joy in tending to his garden and spending time with friends and family while watching the Badgers, Packers, and Brewers games.
Dick is survived by his sons Kurt (Trish) and Mark (Suzi), grandchildren Quincy, Pierson, Breezy, and Bella, sisters Kathy (Keith) Peters, Sue Geise, Rona Case, former wife Beverly Roman Anderson, as well as nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Richard and Leona (Wakeman) Roman, and his sister, Debbie Roman.
A celebration of Dick’s life will be held at Fifth Quarter in Verona, WI on Saturday February 24, 2024 from 12pm -3pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Brighton Hospice, UW Health Carbon Center, or The Alzheimer's Association.
