MADISON - Franklin George Siedschlag, age 94, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on Sunday, December 31, 2017. Franklin was born October 9, 1923 in Juda, WI, to his parents Franklin Paul and Sylvia Siedschlag. He grew up on a farm in Juda as the youngest of five children. He was known by many as Dick, a nickname he was given as a young child. After High School he worked on the family farm for many years, then attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He received his degree in 1956. During college he met and married Margret Strang Stewart on August 28, 1954. After college he started his career in real estate working at Opitz Realty. This experience led to his next opportunity in 1962, when Dick leveraged his real estate knowledge and took a position with the Department of Revenue for the State of Wisconsin. During his distinguished career of 28 years he worked tirelessly assisting the many village, town and city assessors and county boards throughout southern Wisconsin on taxation matters. He worked in the Department until his retirement in 1990.

Dick enjoyed meeting new people and getting together with friends and family. Throughout his career and during retirement, he retained a strong passion for and active involvement in the Green County farming community where he was raised. He possessed a strong faith that nourished him throughout life. In retirement, Dick and Margret traveled extensively in Europe and Brazil as part of the Friendship Force, an organization that facilitates cultural exchanges.

Dick is survived by his son, Greg (Marcy) of Minneapolis; grandsons, Andy and Grant; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, sisters, and wife, Margret.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, January 5th at 11:00 am at FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH, 203 Wisconsin Avenue, Madison. The family will greet friends at the church one hour prior to the service.

The family wants to express their deepest thanks and appreciation to all the staff at Hamilton Park Place in Portage and Agrace for all the warm and loving care they provided during his stay in Assisted Living and his end of life journey.

In lieu of flowers, those wishing to express sympathy may consider a memorial to Agrace HospiceCare, 5395 E. Cheryl Parkway, Madison, WI 53711.

I talked with Janet yesterday and she told me about your father's passing. I'm so glad you were able to be with him at this time. We shared so many pleasant times with them; your folks were great hosts. This really takes me down memory lane.

Deb Kunz on Jan 3, 2018

Dick was easy-going and pleasant to talk with. Many fond memories of special dinners at Marg & Dick's. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
