Madison-Michael L. Frisch, age 61, passed away at the Golden Living Center, in Wisconsin Dells, on Saturday January 19, 2013, with his sister Terri Frisch and her daughter Melissa Childress at his side, after suffering from COPD for several years.

He was born on May 11, 1951 in Madison, son of the late Leo and Catherine Frisch. He worked as a mechanic at Meier Truck for many years and more recently at Madison Newspapers until becoming disabled. Mike led a difficult life as a homeless individual and struggled with alcoholism for many, many years. Even with his many problems in life, Mike could be a very kind individual and was known by many as a very nice guy.

Mike is survived by his brother Pat (Colleen) Frisch, sisters Peggy (David) Plumer, and Terri Frisch (Wylie); nephews Eric (Allison) Plumer, Bradley Plumer, Kevin Frisch; nieces Kelly (Jason) Loy, Angela (Mark) Hanson, Karly Frisch, Melissa Childress, Kari Childress, and several great nieces.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to The American Lung Association of Wisconsin.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at University Hospital, Hospice, and the Golden Living Center. An exceptionally sincere thank you goes to Dr. Ojomo, who Mike highly respected and trusted.

Mike, we are relieved that you can rest in peace now and will not have to experience any more suffering and pain.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, January 25, 2013 at JOYCE-RYAN FUNERAL HOME at 11:00 a.m. with visitation from 9:00 a.m. until the time of service. Burial will follow at Resurrection Cemetery.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
