Services Sunday for Castan Schisel, infant died Wednesday of heart ailment
space
Memorial services for Castan Ronnie Schisel, the infant who won the community’s heart with his battle against multiple medical problems, will be held on Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Bradley Funeral Home.

Visitation will be that day, beginning at 2 p.m., at the funeral home.

The infant died Wednesday evening at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee.

The infant son of Ron and Marlena Schisel of Antigo was born May 21, 2013 at Froedert Hospital in Milwaukee with a rare heart condition called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. It affects about 960 babies in the United States each year.

But although he never managed to come home to Antigo, the community embraced him as its own. They followed his story through social media and the pages of the Antigo Journal, and hundreds of people raised thousands of dollars for him at a benefit in his name at his parents’ establishment, Smitty’s Bar & Grill, in August.

He will be remembered for his vibrant smile and his curly hair. He loved having his hand held and listening to music.

Survivors include his parents, Ronald and Marlena (Keen) Schisel; three sisters, Mekenzie, Morgan and Maddie; grandparents, Randy and Merrill Keen and Kathleen Schisel; great-grandparents, Evelyn and Clayton Laszewski and Barbara Keen; aunts, Erin Keen and Shelly Schisel; uncle, Donnie Schisel; cousins Mason and Caleb; and Godparents, Tim and Amy Keen, all of Antigo.

He was preceded in death by a grandfather, Joseph Schisel; and great-grandparents, Jerry Keen, Anna and Joseph Schisel and Joyce Clark.
