Bill Dishmaker family:  I was a childhood friend of Bill, until 1948 when our family moved to Middleton, WI.  We spent time on the school playgrounds facing Milwaukee St and sledding down Nesemann's hill in winter.  We lived at 710 Wisconsin Ave.  I remember his little black dog named Guess and how we were delighted when someone would ask him the dog's name.  I can tell by the obit photo you chose that Bill obviously possessed an endearing personality.  Sorry for your loss.
