Richard “Dick” Tschanz, age 73 of Monroe, died on Thursday, January 19, at the U.W. Hospital in Madison. He was born on November 17, 1949. Dick grew up in Monroe and worked at various jobs in the community; family business, Monroe Beverage Co., Buehler Travel Agency, Monroe Truck, Joseph Huber Brewing Company and General Beer.
He is survived by his wife, Deb of 44 years, daughter Toni (Aaron) White; grandchildren: Asher and Myles; brothers: Bob (Marianne) Tschanz, Bill (Rebecca) Tschanz and numerous beloved nieces and nephews; and never forget his pals, his cats.
Dick was one of the founders of Berghoff and Blues Festival; he belonged to Monroe Lions, enjoyed bowling, golfing, fishing and boating, and walking his daughter’s dog, reading, and playing cards. He liked to cook with his grandsons and going to their various activities, who were his pride and joy. Dick loved to cook for his family, but his absolute favorite thing was having fun with his grandsons. He will be remembered for being kind, generous and loved having fun. He always said, “being serious was boring and no fun.”
Per Dick’s wishes, private family services will be held. Memorials can be given in Dick’s name to Green County Humane Society or Monroe Lions Club. SHRINER HAGER GOHLKE Funeral Home is assisting the family.
