Obituary

Our strong and caring father, Dr. Vincent Corradino Rizzo, 76, of Kenosha carried his bride into their heavenly home on April 5, 2019, due to injuries from a tragic car accident.

He was born on March 22, 1943, and married the love of his life, Mary Fulmer on June 29, 1968.

Vince graduated from Kenosha High School and Marquette University School of Dentistry. He served in the 665th Dental Detachment in Korea with the U.S. Army Dental Corps from August 1969 to August 1970. He loved socializing with his patients and continued to work as a self-employed dentist until his untimely death.

Vince enjoyed spending time with his best friend, Matt Sylejmani and walking at the YMCA. He was often found working in his vegetable garden, cutting grass and shoveling snow at home and his office (despite his children’s efforts to get him to stop), and absolutely loved playing with his grandchildren. He was a longtime member of the American Dental Association and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish, where he served on the Finance Committee and volunteered at the annual festival for many years. He loved fishing, traveling, and attending his grandson’s sporting events.

Vince was preceded in death by his parents, Corradino and Ida (Paura) Rizzo of Kenosha. He entered into Eternal Life with his wife of 50 years, Mary, and brother, Dr. Michael Rizzo.

He was so proud of his children: Catherine (Ronald Fliess) Koessl of Pleasant Prairie, Dr. Vincent M. (Louisa) Rizzo of Pleasant Prairie, John (Laura) Rizzo of Shorewood, WI, and Dr. Janet (Ryan) Duemke of Hartland, WI and grandchildren: Vinny Rizzo, Roman Duemke, Bianca Rizzo, and Ramsey Duemke. He was so excited to see the addition of two more grandchildren by the end of the year: Gianni Michael Rizzo and Mary Duemke. He is further survived by his brother, Gerald Rizzo, and all of Mary’s siblings and spouses.

Visitation will be held on Friday, April 12th, at Proko Funeral Home from 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, April 13th, with a prayer service at the funeral home at 9:15 a.m. and Mass of Christian Burial celebrated at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church at 10:00 a.m. Entombment will follow in All Saints Mausoleum.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Alzheimer’s Association would be greatly appreciated.

I was in complete shock and disbelief when I heard of this tragedy. Dr. Rizzo was more than just my dentist for over 40 years, he was my friend. I can't believe he is gone. He was always there for me whenever I needed him as I'm sure he was for all his patients. I can't count the times he squeezed me in for an emergency. He was kind, compassionate, friendly and you could always talk to him about anything. I know I speak for all of his patients when I say he will truly be missed. He made a difference in our lives and we will never forget him. I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolences and I will keep you all in my prayers.

I'm so sorry about Dr's passing. He was my dentist for at least 25 if not 30+ years. I loved feeling like family every time I walked in the door. My dad, mom, brother and I were all patients of his at one point or another. I won't ever drive down 39th ave past the office and not think of both of them. He was kind and funny and really cared about his patients. One funny thing he did was every single time I was in the office he would talk to me about Walgreens stock. I work there and he always had to tell me what he thought about the company, good or bad... :) The community will not be the same without Dr. and Mary in it. May they rest in peace together. I'm so sorry for your loss.

It is with great sorrow that I am sending my condolences on your recent loss. As one of Jehovah's Witnesses, I and would like to share a scripture that has benefited me and many people in time of grief. God reassures us of something wonderful in the Bible at Acts 24:15. It says, "There is going to be a resurrection." Along with God's promise to us at Revelation 21:3, 4 of sorrow, death, and pain being done away with permanently.

It is my hope that this bit of information is of comfort to you. Please be sure to find further information regarding the resurrection at: JW.ORG

May God be with you.
