It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Russell “Buck” Westrick, our husband, father, father-in-law, grandpa, great grandpa, brother-in-law and friend.

On Monday, January 28, 2019, Buck passed at the age of 82. Buck and Mary have resided in Mesa, AZ for the last 20+ years. He was born on July 18, 1936, spending most of his life in Whitewater, WI. Buck was co-owner of the Walworth Hotel, owner of Bucko’s Bar, was a sales associate with Keefe and Associates, Inc for many years focusing on agriculture sales, and then a Farm Real Estate Broker for Stade Auctioneer. An avid sports fan, he was a big Packer fan and had a love for golf which included 4 holes in one. He was a member of the Fountain of the Sun Country Club for many years until rheumatoid arthritis took his game away.

He is survived by his loving wife Mary of almost 63 years; his sons, Jeff (Doreen) and Dan (Kelly) Westrick and daughter Tami (Mike) Mikkelsen; grandchildren Cali (Kyle) Muetzelberg, Taylor, Connor, Sydney and Ty Westrick; great grandchildren Madilyn and Wyatt Muetzelberg.
