Raymond Lee Dusso was born August 30, 1940, in Longwood, to Ralph and Irene [nee Brick] Dusso. He was raised in the Greenwood/Loyal area and graduated from Loyal High School in 1958. He worked at the Loyal IGA and O&N Lumber Company. He married Rose Hammond on Oct. 18, 1958, in Loyal. He then worked for the John Wuethrich Creamery and Mills Fleet Farm, Marshfield, until being transferred to Appleton. In 1967, he and his family moved to Menomonie, to manage the newly built Fleet Farm. He worked there until 1976, when he went to work Dotseth Truck Lines and Menomonie Transportation. While working for Menomonie Transportation, some of his greatest memories were of transporting the Menomonie High School football team to its first and second state championships. After his illness in 1996, he still followed Coach LaBuda and the Menomonie Indians to most of their games. He was an avid Packer fan, and he also watched his share of NASCAR races, and took bus groups to the Michigan 500 each summer.
