Allen A. Highman

MADISON- Allen A. Highman, age 74, passed away peacefully on November 18, 2017.

He was born in Racine on May 31, 1943, the son of Arthur and Ruth (Pankow) Highman. Allen graduated from St. Catherine’s High School in Racine. He married Dottie Brousil on November 18, 1967, and passed away on what would have been their 50th wedding anniversary. He worked as the State Employees’ Union arbitrator for AFSCME Council 24 for 30 years.

Allen was an avid boater and loved spending time with family and friends on his houseboat on the Mississippi. He loved having fish tanks, doing genealogy, traveling and going to shows with Dottie before her death in April of 2001. His fun spirit and sense of humor will be missed by all who knew him.
