Roy Allan Hoese, age 67, of Longville, Minnesota passed away on Friday, July 31st, 2020 at his home with family by his side, after a long courageous battle with cancer.
Roy was born in Minneapolis, MN on September 1st, 1952 and raised in Mayer, MN. Roy’s love for driving over the road was who he was. His career of 41 years had him drive over 4 million miles. He got his start with Busing Brothers and Nationwide Carriers. Roy owned a few of his own Peterbuilt trucks. He also drove for TJ Potter Trucking, BM Trucking, Bultsma Trucking, and Hausman Motor Sports. Roy gave up the road and come home when he was diagnosed with cancer. He then worked for Northern Lights Casino and Hotel as a shuttle driver, guard, and valet.
Roy’s first love was his family, then his Harley and he worked hard for both. He loved hunting and fishing and his love for birds and flowers had him busy in the yard up until his last days.
Family that Roy is reunited with are his parents, Myron and June Hoese and two stepson, Jayme and Jacob Wipper.
He leaves behind his wife, Lynda; his buddy and grandson, Phillip J. Wipper; daughter, Jody Bentz; stepdaughters, Dawn (Ken) Flanery, Kelly Wipper, and Brenda Finken; stepsons, Joshua (Billie) Wipper, Brad Evenson and Brian Newkom; 18 grandchildren, three great grandchildren and special friends, Heather, Katie, Aaron, Carin, Teddy, Ron, Bob and Mike.
