Our History

Milwaukee Memorials dates back to 1932 when the Stotzer Family originally owned the business, named Strotzer Granite Company.  Stotzer was a highly recognized and respected name in the Milwaukee area for many years.  Carrying on the family-owned tradition, the Latzke Family acquired the company in 1952 and renamed it Milwaukee Memorials.  Mr. Richard Latzke ran the business with his sons, Fred and Ron, until Fred purchased the business from his father in 1980. Ron Latzke continued to be a highly valued part of the company. In 1998, Milwaukee Memorials merged with Rock of Ages Corp. and became an authorized Rock of Ages dealer.
