Cade Peter WernerCade Peter Werner, better known by his Dad as "Weezi", 14, of Rubicon, gained his bright and colorful angel wings Tuesday, March 14, 2017, in Milwaukee at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin. Cade was an organ donor who was able to give six gifts prolonging and saving other lives.

Cade was born March 1, 2003, in Hartford to Gloria C. (nee Schmitt) and Thomas A. Werner. He was in eighth grade at Honor Intermediate School and was a very intelligent student who took excelled classes at Hartford Union High School. Cade was also a talented athlete who played basketball, baseball and ran cross-country. He had eagle eyes, which aided his skills in hunting, fishing and trap shooting. His great sense of humor, spunk and wit will be greatly missed.

Cade is survived by his loving and proud parents, Gloria and Thomas Werner; best big brother, Cody; loving grandparents, Margaret Mary Schmitt and Mary Lou (Charles) Zurn; and his dearest aunts and uncles, Mary (Ally) Rusch, Lucille (Jim) Becker, Roger (Lisa), Paul (Hollie), Mark (Karen) Schmitt, Denise (Steve) Klink, Joyce (friend Dan Gassen) Schmitt, Terri Werner and Corey (Tonya) Werner. He is further survived by many loved cousins, great-aunts and great-uncles, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandfathers, Peter A. Schmitt and Richard A. Werner, and cousins, Anna Rusch and Kurt Klink. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, March 20, at St. John’s Catholic Church (W1170 Rome Road, Rubicon, WI 53078) with the Rev. David LaPlante officiating. Interment will be in St. John Cemetery.

Family will greet relatives and friends at the church from 1-6:45 p.m. Sunday, March 19, with a prayer service at 7 p.m. The Hartford Fire Department will be present at 1:30 p.m. for an honorary walk-through.
