Jeffrey Earl “Jeff” “Knob” Lallier, 62, passed away Monday, August 8, 2022, at his home on Twin Lake in Waushara County while surrounded by his family. Jeff was born in West Bend on February 18, 1960, to David K. “Deke” and Carol M. (LeRoy) Lallier and was a 1978 graduate of Goodrich High School. He spent most of his life in the Fond du Lac area where he was known and loved by many. It was in Fond du Lac where Jeff met the love of his life, Wanda Korleski. They were married on December 28, 1985.
Together, Jeff and Wanda raised two incredible children, Nichole, and Jesse. He was so proud of both. Jeff wore many hats (and Wanda still has them all to prove it) from roadcrew worker and foreman to cook, bartender, and owner. From builder and mechanic to landscaper and lumberjack. Jeff was an avid outdoorsman. Hunting, fishing, off-roading, sailing, and ice boating were just a few of his loves. Jeff was an active member in many clubs and organizations. He fell in love with northern Wisconsin where he built a cabin in Clam Lake in 1989. Jeff’s love of hunting often took him out west in search of big game.
Survivors include his wife, Wanda; mother, Carol; two children, Nichole (Scott) Blanck and Jesse (Courtney) Lallier; and three grandchildren, Brantley, and Raelynn Blanck, and Wayke Lallier. He is further survived by his brother, David Lallier; and his Godmother, Joanne Lallier. He was preceded in death by his father; paternal grandfather, Kenneth Lallier; maternal grandparents, Earl, and Lucia LeRoy; and his Godfather, John Lallier.
