It is with the heaviest of hearts that the Village announces the passing of our Village President, Hilbert ‘Slug’ Radtke. Slug served our community as a Trustee since December of 2000, and as President since 2012. He was a gracious and humble leader, always giving credit to others for their accomplishments (even if they were his) and inspiring all of us here to do and be better than yesterday. He was a proponent of growth and change here in Wausaukee and helped pave the way for improvement projects both passed, present, and future. Slug was the definition of selflessness, a true humanitarian, and served his community with compassion and an eternal optimism. We at the Village will strive to lead by his example in the days ahead.
On behalf of the Village Trustees and staff, we offer our sincerest condolences to Lyla and family for the loss of their husband and father. Rest in peace, Slug – we’ll miss you always.
