December 13, 1969 - June 4, 2022

Eric Raymond Willey, 52 of Osceola, Wisconsin unexpectedly passed away on Saturday, June 4th, 2022 in an automobile accident.

Eric was born to Raymond and Karen (Kluss) Willey in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin on December 13th, 1969. He was baptized and confirmed at Zion Lutheran Church in East Farmington. Eric started school at Cedar Lake School then attended school in Osceola until he graduated from Osceola High School in 1988. During his school years, he was involved in FFA and wrestling. On June 12th, 1993, Eric married the love of his life, Melissa Campeau and was blessed with two children, Brandon and Brittany. He worked the third shift at ITP in St. Croix Falls for many years then moved to MPP to work the third shift in Osceola. From an early age, Eric learned hard working skills by providing lawn care and working on local dairy farms. He was able to pursue his love of the outdoors by starting Willey’s Lawn and Outdoor Services. After years of taking his kids to pedal pulls, Eric decided to share his passion with others by establishing River Valley Pedal Tractor Pulls, LLC. He was recently appointed the president of the Wisconsin State Pedal Pull Association and voted as a director on the National Pedal Pull Association board. Through the years, Melissa was by his side supporting his many endeavors.

Eric loved deer, squirrel, and coon hunting; ice fishing; cheering on his Green Bay Packers; growing his gardens (pumpkin, squash, etc.); antique tractor pulling; all his pets; and spending time with his friends and family. His greatest achievements were his two kids, Brandon and Brittany. He loved to attend pedal pulls and get good deals at garage sales and Mr. Deals. He frequently stopped at Kwik Trip to build up his rewards.

He was one of the last of the best.

Eric is survived by his wife of 29 years Melissa; son, Brandon (Sabrina) Willey, daughter, Brittany (Luke) Lindahl; grandson, Walker Eric Willey; mother, Karen Willey; siblings, Mark Willey and Robyn (Corrine) Willey; godson/nephew, Ryan Willey; nephews, Codie Campeau and Derek Campeau; niece, Paige Perlock-Campeau; father and mother-in-law, Dale and Judy Campeau; sister-in-law, Kristie (Kris Perlock-Campeau) Campeau-Perlock; aunt/godmother, Helen Jorgenson; numerous other relatives and friends, and of course his dogs Taxie and Max.
