Obituary for Roy E. Hillestad

Roy Hillestad heard that the Lord had a new Steinway and decided he'd rather play piano for Him than the residents of Golden Age Manor and Willow Ridge. So on August 24, 2016, at age 82, he took "the Stairway to Heaven". He leaves behind a rich musical legacy.

Roy was a dairy farmer in New Richmond, WI for 8 years and in Bloomer, WI for 17 years. Then the next 17 years he worked at Jerome Foods.

Roy is survived by his wife, Ruth (Beestman) Hillestad; daughter, Alayne Utecht and her husband Don; son, Wayne Hillestad and his wife Judy; son, Boyd Hillestad and his wife Gretchen; four grandchildren, Lee Utecht, Jared Utecht, Sara Hillestad and Jenna Hillestad; also survived by sister, Helen Beestman; brother, Glen Hillestad; and many relatives and friends.

Roy is preceded in death by his father and mother, Evar and Alma Hillestad; brothers, Gilbert, Kenneth, Albert and Earl Hillestad.

Memorial services will be held at Rowe Funeral Home in Luck, Wisconsin on Saturday, September 10, 2016. Visitation will begin at 10:00 a.m. with the service following at 11:00 a.m.
