August 10, 2018 – Fond du Lac, WI – Roger G. Wojciechowski of Fond du Lac died on Tuesday, August 7, 2018 at Hospice Home of Hope at the age of 64 years.  He was born on January 2, 1954 in Milwaukee to the late Clement and Jean (nee Pacholski) Wojciechowski.

He grew up in Milwaukee, attending local schools.  He graduated from Bay View High School with the Class of 1972.

He enlisted in the United States Navy, serving a short time due to a family medical emergency.  Following his discharge, he returned to Milwaukee.  He worked at various factories in the area, most recently at Dico Industries as a spray painter.

Throughout the years, he became known as “Mr. Fix-It.”  He enjoyed working on various projects.  He renovated homes, fixed cars for family and friends and tinkered on anything and everything.  He shared this passion with his children, grandchildren and nieces.
