Royce Priebusch

March 23, 1935 — August 30, 2020

Royce Melvin Priebusch, 85 of Johnson Creek joined his wife Donna in heaven on August 30, 2020.

Royce was born in Columbus, WI on March 23, 1935 to Melvin Priebusch and Clarice Bickel.  Royce graduated Juneau High School and then served 8 years in the National Guard. He was also a volunteer firefighter for the Watertown Fire Department before going to work for Weiss Excavating where he retired after 30+ years. His hobbies included racing stock cars and competing in Tractor Pulls throughout the area with his John Deere. He always placed in the pulls even in his mid 70’s. But his biggest passion and what he will always be remembered for is the unconditional love he had for his grandchildren Patrick, Olivia, Jesse and Ramone, and his three great-grandchildren Jaxon, PaigeLee and River. Royce was an amazing man who will be deeply missed.

He is survived by his children Scott Priebusch, Steve Priebusch, Shelly Priebusch, Lisa (Chad) Handrow, Stacy (Oscar) Piper and his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Donna and parents.

A celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, September 13th (grandparents day) at the Barrel Inn, Deansville, WI at 1pm.
