Werner worked as a farmer and also spent many years working at the Randolph and Fox Lake feed mills, as well as National Rivet. He was very handy and enjoyed doing carpentry and tinkering around in his shed. He loved sports and especially enjoyed watching and listening to football and baseball. He also enjoyed listening to polka music, gardening, being outdoors and spending time with his family. Werner was a member of the Fox Lake American Legion Post #521.
