Wilmer could fix almost everything and was always willing to help out. Wilmer was a member of St. Stephen’s United Church of Christ, Merrill.

Survivors include his brother, Ronald Krueger of Merrill; sister-in-law, Jean Krueger of Wausau; several nieces and nephews; and his special great-nieces whom he referred to as his granddaughters, Leslie and Emily Heckendorf.
