I just received notice that one of my fellow Franklin Technology Commission members passed away this past Saturday April 30th. Warren Mittlestadt Sr. passing came unexpectedly at age 64.
The commission group just saw Warren at our last Technology Commission meeting on April 27th. We will all miss his great sense of humor, and his great personality.
Here is his Obituary:
Warren A. Mittelstadt, Sr., 64, Franklin, formerly of Marshfield, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, April 30, 2011, in Milwaukee. He was born March 27, 1947 in Marshfield, WI, son of the late Wilfred and Janet (Alban) Mittelstadt. He graduated from Marshfield High school, and served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. Warren married Laurie Toonen in Milwaukee. Warren was a Manager of Information Technology at the Parenting Network in Milwaukee. He played in a band his whole life; he really loved music. He had his commercial pilot’s license, and he loved to fly.
He will be deeply missed by his three loving children: Amanda Mittelstadt and her fiancé-Derek Rhodes, De Pere; Warren A. Mittelstadt, Jr., and his son, Landon, De Pere; and Tiffany (David) Cruz, Highland, IL, and their three children: Angela, CeCe, and David, Jr.; special friend, Kathy Ausbrook, Mission Hills, Kansan; one sister, Linda Raymond, Boca Raton, FL, and her two sons, Will and Allan Raymond; and his former wife, Laurie Toonen, De Pere.
