    I have so many memories with Rick, its hard to just pick a couple. We grew up together as were next door neighbors. My fondest memories were helping the Stuttgen family bail hay during the summer. Rick and I went fishing with Chuck to Canada back in high school. Rest in Peace. Hugs to you entire family.

    Cindy and family - I am so sorry to hear of Ricky's passing. He was such a gentle and kind soul. I really enjoyed working with him for so many years at TDS Telecom. He was always pleasant and fun to work with on the projects we shared. Every March, I looked forward to the upcoming Maple Syrup season. He really enjoyed doing that with his greater family. I will say a prayer for him in his eternal life.

    I worked with Ricky on quite a number of projects for our southwestern exchanges. These were always difficult to solve, but Ricky was always positive and so nice to work with. I'd stop by his cube with questions and always enjoyed talking with him. I can see he truly expressed the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. My prayers and condolences are with his family. I will miss him greatly.

    At the Fried/Schneider family reunion Rick good-naturedly played crokinole for the first time and was so good he even scored a 20! Unfortunately for him, I was his partner (and a hopeless shot) so he did not advance in the tournament. Hugs to Cindy and the kids. How your hearts must ache.

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

James S. | July 2020

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Lynda R. | July 2020

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Michael M. | July 2020

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
