He died Friday, March 13, 2015 surrounded by family at the Maple Manor Care Center in Langdon.
Willis was born August 6, 1934 near Vang to Helgert and Lillian (Christianson) Romfo. The family moved south of Hannah where they grew up and went to school. On June 20, 1964, he married Sheri Krumweide in Sarles. They celebrated their 50th anniversary last summer. The couple remained farming near Hannah while raising their three children. They also enjoyed spending time at the lakes with family and friends. He had a natural talent for farming and loved passing this knowledge on to his children and family. He served as supervisor on the Linden Township Board and was a member of the United Lutheran Church in Langdon. He had a heart of gold and loved spending time and money on his children and grandchildren. After the children grew, they moved into Langdon where he loved having coffee and playing cards with his many friends. He will be dearly missed by those who knew him.
