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.
