Chad Viesselmann, 25

Chad Viesselmann, 25, went to his eternal home on Friday, Nov. 18,  
2011, at Aurora Medical Center in Grafton.

Chad was born on March 31, 1986 in Milwaukee, the son of Kim and  
Joanne (nee Burton) Viesselmann. He attended St. Paul Lutheran School  
and Grafton High School, graduating in 2004. Following high school,  
Chad studied construction management at the University of Wisconsin- 
Stout and received his bachelor of science degree in 2009. For the  
past few years, he enjoyed working at Arborscape in Germantown.
Chad was a lifelong active member of Trinity Lutheran Church in  
Cedarburg. He also belonged to the Snow Runners Snowmobile Club, and  
was a member of Cloverleaf 4-H club. He could traverse all of Ozaukee  
County on his 4-wheeler and had participated in every demo derby at  
the Ozaukee County Fair since he could drive.

Chad felt most at home on the dance floor and could persuade even the  
most reluctant of partners to join him. We can think of Chad and his  
infectious smile singing us one of his trademark songs "Ooh-oo child,  
things are gonna get easier, Ooh-oo child, thingsíll get brighter."
He will be remembered as an incredibly hard-working person who always  
put others before himself.

Chad is survived by his parents, Kim and Joanne of Grafton; and his  
sister, Leah Viesselmann of Spring Valley, Ill. He is further  
survived by his grandparents, Killian Burton of Belgium and Art and  
Margie Viesselmann of Grafton; aunts and uncles, Mary Burton of  
Belgium, Roger (Margaret) Burton of Grafton, Dan (Jenny) Burton of  
Oostburg, Judy Burton of Milwaukee, Debbie Viesselmann (friend Steve  
Schultz) of Port Washington and Kathy (Bob) Stuyck of Machesney Park,  
Ill.; cousins, Nick, Joe and Jim Burton and Amy (Jack) Gonzalez;  
other relatives and innumerable friends.

He is preceded in death by his grandmother, Mildred Burton; and Uncle  
Jerry Burton.

Funeral services will be held at 7 p.m. today, Nov. 22, at Trinity  
Lutheran Church, N60 W6047 Columbia Road in Cedarburg. Chadís family  
will receive visitors at the church today from 3 p.m. to  6:45 p.m.  
Chad will be laid to rest at Lakefield Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the Ozaukee County  
Humane Society in honor of Chadís beloved childhood dog, Rizzy, or
