Obituary

Donald A. Patasius of West Bend, passed away on May 1, 2019 at the age of 77.

Donald was born on August 7, 1941 in Port Washington to Anthony and Catherine (nee Hansen) Patasius. He married Jeanette (nee Rauscher) July 21, 1962 at St. Frances Cabrini Church in West Bend. Donald worked at Norstar Aluminum Molds (Kelch Corp.) for over 30 years, retiring in 2000. He and Jeanette were always together. They occasionally enjoyed going to the casinos where his favorite game was Keno. They had a summer home for many years in Wisconsin Dells next to his twin brother Ronald and his wife, Audrey and would enjoy spending time outdoors. Donald loved feeding all the birds and he would get up in the middle of the night to feed the deer who would be waiting for him every night. He loved to play poker and sheepshead and for many years would have weekly card games on Saturday nights with his in-laws Tony and Sarah Rauscher and Ralph and Delores Rosbeck. Donald enjoyed cooking delicious meals for the family. If you met Don, you were his friend and he would do anything for anybody and was extremely compassionate. He is known for his great sense of humor and playing tricks with all he met, including the guys at work, but especially his grandchildren.

Donald is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Jeanette. His children Lori Patasius, Jeff (Lisa Freitag) Patasius, Randy (Toni) Patasius, and Jamie (Jenny) Patasius. He is further survived by his grandchildren Emily, Lilly, Kaylee, Casey, Kyle, Ashley, Tristan, and Kiarra, great-grandchildren Cole, Caine, siblings Jeanette “Jean” Patasius, twin brother Ronald (Audrey) Patasius, Donna (Bruce) Laabs, Linda Heider, Karla (Ed) Harvey, and Bonnie (Doc) Erickson, nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. Preceded in death by his parents, step father Nick “Nicki” Hansen, in-laws Anthony (Sarah) Rauscher, brother Larry Hansen, brothers-in-law Al Heider, Ilo Rauscher, many aunts and uncles.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be at 6:00 pm on Monday, May 13, 2019 at St. Frances Cabrini Church (1025 S. 7th Ave., West Bend) with Father Andrew Infanger presiding. Visitation will be at the church only on Monday, May 13 from 4:00 pm – 5:45 pm.

Back in the late 70"s when I started working at Kelch, both Donnie and Ronnie took me under their wings to teach me what I know today. Back then we did not get paid much, but it was those two guys that made it an absolute pleasure to come to work. We had so much fun that coming to work was not a chore but something you looked forward to.

I love those guys as brothers and I will never forget them

Uncle Donnie, Your Death came as a shock to us and as you sit in the arms of the Lord, your family and friends mourn your death. We still wake up every morning hoping this is a dream, and it hurts knowing you are gone forever. Your sense of humor is one thing I will always remember. Dad was always telling me stories of how you would prank the guys at work, including him. I would really enjoy those stories. I don't think there was anyone who met you that did not enjoy talking to you. We will cherish every minute we spent with you. LOVE YOU. Gary and Sandy
