“We’d like to thank everyone for their tremendous support during this terribly difficult time, especially the family and friends who have reached out and the people we have dealt with at the Dane County Sheriff’s Department and UW Hospital. Max was truly an angel who brightened everyone’s life that he came into contact with and Ted was a loving husband and father. Both will be missed greatly.
The family asks that everyone respect the family’s privacy during this trying time as the grieving process continues.
