Bert Wesley Raidiger, Jr. passed away at 88 at home from age-related illnesses, on July 27, 2020.

He was born on November 17, 1931 to Bert and Fay Raidiger in Rockford, IL. In his youth he spent the summers at his family’s ancestral homestead on South Manitou Island and developed a love for the outdoors. In 1952, Bert enlisted in the Marine Corps and was stationed in Kodiak, AK, where he learned carpentry. Bert married Mary Bernadette Wolfe in Bremerton, WA, in February, 1953, and shortly afterward, was transferred to Camp Lejeune, NC. They had their first child, Cathy, later that year. They moved to Racine, WI, in January, 1954 and in February he was honorably discharged. While in Racine they had four more children, Bert III, Chris, Lu, and Joan. During the summer of 1962, Bert moved his family to southern California in a 1929 Ford Model A Roadster. In 1966, they had their last child, Michele. They remained in California until Bert’s retirement in 1993 when he and Mary moved to Twin Falls, ID. Mary passed away in 1997.

Bert married Alice McDrummond in May, 2002 and they went on many adventures together. Bert loved camping, bowling and dancing. He had a great sense of humor, joked with everyone, and had a passion for tinkering with old vehicles. Bert influenced many lives.

He is survived by his second wife, Alice; his four daughters: Cathy (Donald) Becker, Lu (Bob) Harless, Joan (Ellis) Fitler and Michele (Mike) O’Neill; and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Bert was preceded in death by both of his parents; his first wife, Mary; and both sons, Bert III and Chris.

He will be greatly missed.

A kind and respectful man even to passers-by. I know he will be greatly missed by those who knew him best and cherished him in their hearts, so to you I extend my deepest condolences. May the sadness of today turn to tomorrow's joy as we hope for a better future for all. Isaiah 26:19, Psalms 37:29
