It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of William Norbert Bormett. Bill passed away from natural causes on May 7, 2020 at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin at the age of 75. He was surrounded by those that loved him dearly as he passed on. Those that could not be there, were there in spirit and thought.

Bill was born on July 21, 1944 in Madison. Although he lived parts of his life in Florida, Arizona, and Texas, Wisconsin was his home. So many people, all over, loved Bill. When you met Bill, you instantly liked him. And boy, was Bill ever smart. He was an avid reader and history buff. He had a passion for stamp collecting and could tell you the history behind each stamp he owned. He was a wealth of knowledge and could educate you on just about anything. He was truly a "smarty pants know it all", and we all were endeared to him for it. We loved him for it.

Bill had four children with Patricia (Gervasi) Bormett. He is survived by three of his four children: Son, Tony Bormett, his wife, Nancy Valentin Bormett, and their two children, Sara and Sam whom Grandpa loved very much; his daughter, Becky Bormett; and daughter, Theresa Bormett and her husband, Brent Del Gaizo. Bill is preceded in death by his second born, daughter, Cathy Bormett.

Bill is also survived by his brother, Tom Madigan and his partner, Mary; his loving, devoted sister and brother-in-law, Denise Madigan-Doucette and John Doucette; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. He is preceded in death by his father and mother, Norbert Bormett, and Mary Jean (O'Neill) Bormett- Madigan; stepfather, Dave Madigan; and brothers John and Bob Bormett.

Dad - We hope Cathy was at heaven's door to greet you when you arrived, with her big brown eyes and a big hug. We hope you are surrounded by all those that passed before you and you are having a good time. We hope you are at peace. You are with the Lord now. Hey, maybe you even got to meet that duck that you always said was with the Lord. Yah, yah, yah, well yah, you know Dad ... that your children, family, and friends loved you very much and will miss you incredibly and immensely.

@Sandy and Jim DelGaizo: Thanks very much for thinking of us. It mean a lot to read your kind words and to know that you and Jim have us in your thoughts. We appreciate your support.

@Carol Cerniglia: Thank you Aunt Carol. Your remarks are meaningful and appreciated very much. Very nice and caring of you to share your thoughts. Thank you.

Becky, Tony, and Terri ... I'm so sorry for your loss. Patricia ... I am sorry for your loss too. Although you and Bill were divorced, I know that you still cared about each other. Kathy ... now you have your dad with you again! I'm sure you're rejoicing together with my sister Toni, Grandpa Nino, Ben, and Nona Gervasi .... along with all the other family members there with you. Please don't forget those of us that you left behind ... because we will not forget any of you. I really enjoyed seeing all of the family pictures posted with the obituary. I see a lot of good memories in them. I will always remember Bill for his wonderful laugh ... and his pause just before it! Until we see you again ... enjoy your days in heaven under the rule of Our Lord and Savior.
