    I was Bill and Walt's dentist for many years in Madison. So you can imagine the stories over the years, updated every 6 months. Bill was a true gentleman and was one of the kindest souls I ever met. For a time, we sat near the brothers at Wisconsin Men's Basketball games. Their smiles made the world better place.

    I worked with Bill a good share of those 33 years at Revenue. It was always a pleasant experience every time we would meet. We also shared some enjoyable social Revenue outings. He is someone l will never forget. Paul Nelson

    Warren and I knew Bill from our days with the DOR in Madison. We lost track of him when we moved to Milwaukee but the memories of the fun times we shared remain. Sorry for the loss of Bill. Sandy Arndt

    Willie was one of my best friends. We shared the same birthday & went for 'tinis every year on our special day when we worked @ DOR. Spring training games in Arizona & countless more Mallards ones in Wisconsin. He & Walt let me stay @ their home when I visited Madison. We shared some great times. This sad news was unexpected & hit me hard. I will miss him terribly.

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.

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

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.
