Roland J. Rosenkranz, age 81, of Madison, passed away on Monday, Sept. 27, 2021. He was born on June 6, 1940, in Highland, the son of Charles and Josephine (Votruba) Rosenkranz.

After retirement, he and Gisela enjoyed travel, with Turkey, Spain, Mexico and Peru being a few of their adventures. Roland enjoyed woodworking, painting, landscaping and genealogy.

Roland is survived by his dedicated and loving wife, Gisela; two sons, Roland (Jean Crupper) Rosenkranz Jr. and Neil Rosenkranz; granddaughter, Addisen (Josh) Carson; and great-grandson, Cooper Carson. He was preceded in death by his parents.

Visitation will be held at the funeral home from 5:30 p.m. until the time of service on Thursday. Burial will be held in the Highland Public Cemetery at a later date.

A special thank you to our many many supportive friends. Without them, the past year would have been impossible. Their friendship made all prior years a blessing in every regard.
