Statement of Chief Justice Patience Drake Roggensack on passing of Retired Justice William G. Callow

Madison, Wisconsin - March 16, 2018

"I am saddened to learn of Justice Callow's passing. He was a lawyer and judge whose passion for the law was driven by a superior intellect and strong conviction. Generous and warm, he was known to be feisty and intense when a question of law needed answering. I knew a man of honor and commitment who never lost his sense of humor in the gravest of situations. My thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time of their loss."
