Clarence Walter Fauteck, born in Wausau, Wisconsin on August 3, 1921, passed peacefully in sleep, at age 99, on October 6, 2020. He is survived by his wife, JoEllen, his two daughters, two granddaughters, and his great granddaughter. He is further survived by two brothers, two nephews, a niece and many friends. He is predeceased by his sister and nephew. Following an honorable discharge from the US Army at the close of WWII, Clarence and JoEllen married on January 4, 1947 and celebrated 73 years together.
As the oldest of 4 children reared by a single parent, Clarence worked and made sacrifices to help support his mother and siblings as soon as he was able. When he bought his first house, his mother and two brothers were welcomed to live in the upstairs flat. Clarence valued education highly, encouraging and supporting the college educations of his wife and daughters. He also valued thrift, saving not only for rainy days but for sunny ones too. As a young man, he joined the YMCA where he excelled at gymnastics. Throughout his life, he liked to garden, fish, bowl, and play golf. He also liked playing cards, especially Sheepshead and weekly games with their Bridge club. After retiring from Heil C., Clarence and JoEllen enjoyed a comfortable life in their Wauwatosa home, and during the past few years, in an assisted living suite at Luther Manor. An experienced handyman, Clarence was always busy repairing or building something for family, friends, or neighbors. He never stopped believing that hard work, perseverance, and a positive outlook paid off. His 99 years show he was right.
The family is deeply grateful to the Luther Manor Courtyard staff and Hospice team for their care and kindness and appreciates the Hartson Funeral Home for their help and support.
Clarence will be laid to rest in a private ceremony at South Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery. A memorial service for family and friends will be planned at a later date.

*Please Note: In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Clarence’s memory to the Wisconsin Humane Society. He loved animals—cats, dogs, birds, and wildlife.
