SOME SAD NEWS

Howard Whitlock Howard William Whitlock, age 80, passed away on Jan. 27, 2017. He was born on May 2, 1936, to Glenn and Howard Whitlock in Washington, D.C.
Howard attended the University of Maryland and received a degree in Chemistry in 1957. He became a graduate student in Organic Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin, studying under the supervision of Professor William S. Johnson. He received his Ph.D. in 1960, with a thesis on "Approaches to the Synthesis of the Alkaloid Veratramine." Shortly thereafter, Howard began an academic career that spanned over 50 years at the University of Wisconsin.
Howard loved every aspect of Organic Chemistry; his 90+ publications ranged over a wide variety of topics. As a teacher, he was always patient. When desktop computers became available, he developed unique applications that could be used in research. The creation of WIMP, a program useful for drawing organic molecules, led to a close friendship with Dr. Alfred Bader and the Aldrich Chemical Co. In later years, Howard singlehandedly tackled the complex problems of computerized organic synthesis.

Howard loved spending time outdoors. Despite the demands of teaching and research, he was an avid biker and enjoyed long rides in the country. Vacations often involved camping and canoeing with his family in northern Wisconsin, or with the Boy Scouts in the Boundary Waters. In the summers, he spent many hours working in the garden, especially enjoying the homegrown tomatoes and peppers. He liked to joke that he was an organic gardener, since he only used organic chemicals in the garden. Howard, and our neighbor Lee Holt on Norman Way, had the vision to initiate fund-raising to protect what is now known as Kettle Pond Conservation Park. Many in the community pledged support. Keeping the area in its natural state was a new concept for the City of Madison at the time.
The creativity that led to Howard's successful research career also extended to home. Howard enjoyed all sorts of arts and crafts, especially woodworking, and shared his enthusiasm and ingenuity with his children. Many of the projects that he made for his children many years ago are still enjoyed by his grandchildren today.
Although his health was affected by a stroke in 2010, Howard continued to learn new skills with the help of the Genesis therapists. He also benefited from the support of the Madison Aphasia group. Music, games and puzzles were always important, and he was seldom without his iPad.
Howard is survived by his wife, Barbara; daughter, Barbara Whitlock; son-in-law, Paul Groff, grandchildren, Andrew Groff and Emily Groff; sister, Anita Whitlock; brother, Rodger Whitlock; sister-in-law, Muriel Shortreed; sister-in-law, Dorothy Shortreed and her daughters, Bev, Patty and Barb Shortreed. Howard was preceded in death by his son, Robert, and brother-in-law, Robert Shortreed.

SOME SAD NEWS

Rick Pfeifer Richard James Pfeifer, age 64, passed away on Tues., Feb. 7, 2017.
He came into the world on July 30, 1952, in Green Bay; needless to say he was a big Packer fan. Richard lived a very full life. He was an avid sportsman and enjoyed hunting and fishing, with bow hunting being his favorite. He enjoyed the outdoors more than anything. Richard had a long career in public service, spanning 34 years, beginning with the City of

Madison Parks Dept., and then the UW Space Astronomy and the Chemistry Dept. as an Advanced Instrument Maker. His time at Space Astronomy was his favorite because he worked closely with his father, Richard H Pfeifer. Rick became my husband on June 30, 1983 and took my four children under his wing.
He is survived by his wife, JoAnn M Pfeifer; his four stepchildren, Andrea Monson (Eric Johnson), Jenifer (Jason) Gaspar, Sean (Dinelli) Monson and Nathan Monson; 7 grandchildren; his sister Toni (Ben) Kollmansberger and their 3 children.
He was preceded in death by his father Richard H. Pfeifer and his mother Dolores Pfeifer, both of whom he loved immensely.
Richard had such a good and giving heart and that is what counts in life.
Goodbye my friend, my love. May your next journey be as great as your time here on Earth. He will be sorely missed. God Bless.
There will be a celebration of his life this summer.
