Kenneth C. Wyss, age 77 of Monroe, died peacefully on Sunday, January 7, 2018 at his home with his family by his side. Ken was born on December 12, 1940 in Monroe, the son of Carl W. and Laura A. (Marty) Wyss. He graduated from Monroe High School in 1958. Ken entered the U.S. Army in January, 1959 and was stationed in Munich, Germany until his honorable discharge in March, 1962. He married Maximiliane Daniela Koglemaier on Jan. 26, 1962 and they were blessed with two daughters, Angie and Amy. He married Karen Kubly Erickson on March 3, 1978 at St. John's United Church of Christ. Ken joined his father in farming and together they raised one of the most outstanding dairy herds in Green County. Known as Wyssland Farms, it was the first farm to export registered Holsteins to Japan, Germany, South America, Costa Rica, and Italy. Following his retirement from farming in 1981, Ken worked for Studer Super Service, Color Putty, and was employed as a messenger for the Swiss Colony for 18 years. He loved watching all of his grandchildren's activities and events. He was a member of St. John's United Church of Christ and the National Holstein Association where he served on the Sire Selection Committee. Ken enjoyed playing slowpitch when he was younger, golfing, wintering with Karen in Arizona, and traveling with friends Larry and Joy Olson.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and first wife, Maxi.
