Dr. Phiroze "Phil" Hansotia

Dr. Phiroze "Phil" Lovji Hansotia, 82, of Ellison Bay, died peacefully late Tuesday night, June 23, 2020 at Door County Medical Center in Sturgeon Bay with family at his side.

 

     He was born November 8, 1937 in Deolali, India, the son of Lovji C. Hansotia and Banu Sohrab (Bhathena) Hansotia. Phil attended St. Mary's High School, a British prep school, in Bombay. Among his various courses of study was British literature, which facilitated his love for language. Upon Phil's graduation from St. Mary's, he went on study at St. Xavier's College in Bombay. Inspired by his paternal grandfather, Phil had aspirations of becoming a doctor. He studied at Nagpur India Medical School. There, he began keeping a diary, and his love for writing flourished.

 

     Phil broke with tradition, and rather than going to Great Britain for further training, he had his sights set on the United States, where he knew the best (medical) technology existed. He initially interned at a hospital in Erie, PA then completed a residency at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. Phil received a fellowship at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for neurology and specialized in electrophysiology.

 

     While in Madison, he met Marilyn Carol Fahning who was working as a public health nurse. They were married on January 21, 1967 in Milwaukee. They moved to London where Phil worked at the National Hospital for Neurological Diseases at Queens Square and also taught and conducted research.

 

     He accepted a position at Marshfield Clinic in Wisconsin, where he had an opportunity to build the neurology program there. Marshfield's (neurology) program became world-renowned during his years of practice from 1970-1997. He also developed a Sleep Medicine department and trained EEG technicians. In addition to practicing medicine, conducting and publishing research and giving presentations, Phil provided medical care in under-developed countries outside of the United States. He served as an adjunct Clinical Professor of Neurology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from 1989-1998.

 

     Phil and Marilyn retired to Door County in 2004 and made their home in Ellison Bay. While in Door County, he was a member of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Ephraim, The Wallace Group (a Door County poetry group), the Door County Land Trust, the Ellison Bay Service Club, Ellison Bay Historical Society, and the Clearing. Professionally, Phil was a member of the Society of Clinical Neurologists.

 

     With his love for writing and poetry, he published his first book of poetry, "Somewhere There", followed by "Looking for America" in 2012. He loved spending time with family and friends, biking, reading, playing tennis, painting, traveling to familiar places and to new lands and so much more.

 

     Phil will be missed by his wife, Marilyn, with whom he was blessed with over 53 years of marriage; son and daughter, Eric Phiroze (Nicole) Hansotia of Alpharetta, GA and Shirene (John Herms) Hansotia of Mt. Pleasant, SC; grandchildren, Everett Hansotia and Alexa Chase; brother and sister, Noshir (Hootoxy) Hansotia of Phoenix, AZ and Nina (Myron "Mike") Myers of Los Altos Hills, CA; and other relatives.

 

     He was preceded in death by his parents.

 

     Arrangements are pending for Phil's life to honored at a later date. Interment will be in the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Memorial Gardens in Ephraim.

 

     Memorials may be given in Phil's memory for Habitat For Humanity; Doctors Without Borders; American Red Cross; Write On Door County; and The Clearing (in Door County).

Fredric "Rick" Rosati

Fredric “Rick” Rosati, CEO of the national pizza restaurant group Rosati’s Pizza, passed away unexpectedly June 15 at the age of 70 at his home in Cave Creek, Ariz. He died of natural causes.


Rosati was the driving force to franchise the Rosati’s Pizza concept in 1979. He opened his first restaurant at the age of 20 in Arlington Heights, Ill., and went on to establish locations across the U.S., including the company’s first Arizona restaurant in 1986.


Rosati’s death closely follows that of his father, Rosati’s Pizza co-founder Ferdinand “Fred” Rosati, who died at the age of 102 in March.


Rick Rosati was known for his business acumen, work ethic and dedication to helping employees rise through the ranks through mentorship opportunities.


“Rick believed in American entrepreneurship and the power of small business,” brother and Rosati’s Pizza CFO Jeff Rosati said. “Rick mentored countless dishwashers and cooks and helped people move from entry-level positions to roles as managers and even store owners. A lot of his business partners were former dishwashers.”


“This isn’t just a professional loss for our franchisees; it’s personal,” sister Regina Rosati said. “A lot of our store owners have known Rick since they were teenagers. He was a father figure and friend who took a personal interest in his colleagues.”


Rick Rosati was born in Chicago on Dec. 31, 1949, and raised in Riverside, Ill., alongside his six siblings. He started working at his family’s flagship restaurant at the age of 14 and later co-founded a Chicago-based pizza supply company with his father and other relatives.


When Rosati wasn’t behind an oven or in the office, he could be found fishing, hunting, boating and spending time with his family in Door County, Wisc. He was a doting uncle to 21 nieces and nephews and a longtime Chicago Cubs fan.


The first Rosati’s Pizza restaurant opened in 1964 in Mount Prospect, Ill. Today, there are approximately 200 locations throughout the U.S.


At the time of his death, Rosati was overseeing a store opening in Arizona. He worked closely with his brothers, including CFO Jeff Rosati, who will continue to manage the company.


Rick Rosati attended St. Mary’s School and Sacred Heart Seminary before studying business at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).


He is survived by his mother Theresa Rosati (Cortina); six siblings: Regina Rosati, Stephanie Haack, Michael Rosati (Kay), Annamarie Bensfield (Joseph), William Rosati (Joanne) and Jeffrey Rosati (Karen); and 21 nieces and nephews.


Visitation will be held 2:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 24, at Ahlgrim & Sons Funeral Home, 330 W. Golf Rd. in Schaumburg, Ill., with a prayer service at 5 p.m.


Private goodbyes are scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday, June 26, at Stella Maris Catholic Parish, 2410 S. Bay Shore Dr. in Sister Bay, Wisc., with an 11:30 a.m. mass to follow.

Marcella Nimmer

Marcella Ann (Hruska) Nimmer, of Luxemburg, died peacefully on Wednesday evening, June 17, 2020 at the age of 103 with family at her side.  She is the daughter of the late Sylvester J. and Antonia (Walecka) Hruska.  Born on January 2, 1917 on a small farm in Stangelville she learned the meaning of hard work, dedication to family, a love to learn and to share her knowledge with others.  Graduating in 1935 from Kewaunee High School she went on to Algoma Teacher’s Normal School.  She continued her education with summer classes at UW Stevens Point.

 

  In 1937 Marcella began her career in teaching at High Bluff Elementary School, south of Ellisville where she taught for seven years.  Teaching 26 to 30 children, all eight grades in one room with no electricity, or indoor plumbing.  She came in early on frigid winter days to stoke up the wood stove.  Already at age 20 her joy in the classroom overshadowed all else.

 

In the summer of 1943 during WWII, Marcella traveled to Milwaukee in her Model A Ford Coup to do her part in the war effort.  She landed a job at Allis-Chalmers factory working the midnight shift making airplane parts. That fall she returned to Luxemburg and taught at Luxemburg Village School the next two years.

 

In 1945 hearing of the vast shortage of teachers in California, she took the train west, along with her cousin and was immediately hired at Orange Glen School in Escondido, CA. teaching grades 6, 7 and 8. The war ended and Marcella moved back home.

 

On June 19, 1946 at St. Lawrence Church in Stangelville she married Glenn A. Nimmer of Kewaunee.  Together they moved back to California where Glenn took work as a home builder for returning soldiers and their families.  Later that year they returned to Wisconsin to attend a wedding and this time decided to remain and raise their own family, settling in Two Rivers.  Glenn had accepted a job as general manager at the Luxemburg Manufacturing Co. in 1949.  Wanting to be closer to his employment, the family moved to Luxemburg in 1953. Glenn preceded Marcella in death on July 2, 1993.

 

Throughout the years, Marcella not only raised their ten children, but continued her passion for teaching.  She taught at St. Mary Catholic School in Luxemburg for four years.  After a two-year break from her career, she secured a job with Luxemburg Public Schools in the Chapter 1 program assisting students who needed extra help. She remained for 21 years before retiring in 1994 at age 77.  Then she volunteered driving for elderly services, driving until she was 88.  However, Marcella never really retired as she spent countless hours at her kitchen table helping grandchildren and great grandchildren with their studies.  Marcella’s greatest joys were her family, cooking and of course, teaching.

 

She is survived by her children: Gary (Roxanne), Andy, Ted (Sandy), Lucy Hilgendorf, John (Sheila), Joe, Lori (Al) Krass, Greg (Amanda); three daughters in law, Jan Arts, Carol (Phil) Wech and Diana Nimmer; 25 grandchildren; 30 great grandchildren; one sister in law, Lavonne Nimmer.

 

Marcella was preceded in death by her husband Glenn, one son Bob, step-son Bill, one sister Sylvia (Tony Albrecht), one brother Joe (Josie) Hruska, two sisters in law and two brothers in law, Nota Nimmer (died at age 4); Sherman (Fern) Nimmer and Dale Nimmer.

 

On Tuesday, June 23rd, a private visitation will take place from 9 to 9:45 am at St. Mary Church, Luxemburg. 

 

A private mass of Christian burial will immediately follow at 10:00 am with Rev. Daniel Schuster officiating and Rev. Milton Suess concelebrating. 

 

The funeral mass will be live streamed on St. Mary Church Facebook page. 

 

Burial will be held at 2:00 pm at the Union Cemetery in Breed, WI beside her husband, near the family cabin.

 

A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

With profound sadness we announce the passing of William Eugene Caskey. 

On May 29th, 2020, Bill passed in peace at his home of natural causes at the age of 81. Preceded in death by his wife, Barbara, Bill was the loving father of Elizabeth Dohr and proud grandfather of Ariana Dohr,  both from Wild Rose, WI

 

Bill was born November 16th, 1938 in Phelps Wisconsin. Son of the late Elmer and Christine Caskey of Phelps, WI, Bill was blessed to have 6 loving brothers and sisters; George (Jane deceased) Caskey of Idaho, Fred (Faith) Caskey of Phelps, Phyllis(deceased) (Wayne) Schmidt of Marathon, Darlene (Dick deceased) Loy of Wausau, Jane (Dave) Johnson of Wausau, Ruth (Tom) Griswold of Wausau, as well, as many special family members and friends. In particular he enjoyed his Algoma friends in which he met with several times a week at the local area restaurants for fun get togethers.

 

Bill grew up in Phelps WI, attended UW-Stevens Point and UW- Madison to become a Teacher and Administrator. Upon graduation from college he married his High School sweetheart, Barbara, and moved to New London, WI. beginning his career in education of over 40 years.  Starting in the classroom and then becoming Principal of 4 Elementary Schools in New London, his passion for education was instilled in his being.  Upon retirement from the New London School District, Bill and Barbara built and moved to their retirement home on the Lake in Algoma.

Bill enjoyed traveling with his daughter and granddaughter and has had many adventures throughout his life. He loved exploring the world, past history, reading, fishing, walking, volunteering at his churches, spending time with his dogs, and visiting with people. 

Bill was loved by so many for many different reasons, but mostly for the fact that he always put others first. He was typically one of the first people that someone would call if they needed advice or help with something. He was willing to donate time or a listening ear to whatever was needed, going above and beyond in making sure that whomever he came in contact with would feel the goodness in his heart and were better for meeting him.  His dedication to his family, community, and church will be greatly missed. 

 

Bill is preceded in death by his parents, sister Phyllis, loyal companions Trophy and Dakota, as well as, other family members.
