Royce Victor Ferguson, 71, of Prairie du Chien, died Sunday, Feb. 9, 2020, at the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital in Madison, after succumbing to long-term health complications. 

Born and raised in Middleton, the son of Rollo and Bernita (Orth) Ferguson, Royce eventually lived in Conyers, Ga., Madison, and Prairie du Chien. In his early years, he served in the United States Army from 1967 to 1970, and was stationed at Fort Benning and in Korea. After serving with the U.S. Army, Royce worked at Oscar Mayer in Madison, and Golden State Foods in Conyers, Ga. Royce was fond of the beauty of the Mississippi River, and often recollected about his time spent with his brother Richard Ferguson as a young man fishing at Cold Springs and Ferryville. 

Royce leaves behind his sisters, Cherlya Breakfield, Elda Epply, Belva Mooner, Rita Showers; his son, Jonathan Ferguson of Lake Worth Beach, Fla.; his daughter, Holly Ferguson of Watkinsville, Ga.; many nieces and nephews who he loved dearly; and special friends, Ray and Bev Tirado, who provided much comfort and support. 

He is preceded in death by his mother, Bernita Orth Ferguson; father, Rollo Ferguson; step-father, Cyril Faltersac; and beloved first son, Jeremy Michael Ferguson. 

In lieu of flowers and service, the family is asking those wishing to extend condolences consider a donation to a local veterans hospital or Aging and Disabled Resource Center in Royce’s name. Online condolences are available at www.staffordfuneralhomes.com. The Richardson-Stafford Funeral Home in Spring Green is assisting the family with the arrangements.
