Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was among the speakers at the funeral service for real estate developer and philanthropist Joseph Zilber Tuesday.
Barrett said Zilber’s charitable contributions were deals with the community.
“His gifts didn’t come without strings attached,” Barrett said. “He wanted everyone in this community to give back as well. Here’s the deal: he is challenging every one of us in this room and in this community to be better human beings. He is also challenging us to be better members of this community.”
