Timothy James Pautsch

August 29, 1954 — April 24, 2021

Timothy James Pautsch, 66, died peacefully at home on April 24th, 2021 after a long battle with Cancer.

Tim was born August 29th, 1954 in Waupun, WI, son of Melvin Pautsch and Lois (Peter’s) Pautsch.

Tim graduated from Waupun High School; class of 1972. Following graduation, Tim attended Moraine Technical College of Fond Du Lac and earned his Associates Degree in Manufacturing Engineering. Tim worked as an engineer for 42 years, retiring from Diversified Woodcrafts in Suring, WI in 2019.

In 2002, Tim met the love of his life, Deb Salta. They married in 2015. During their 19 years together, Tim and Deb enjoyed traveling and exploring new places. Tim loved sharing the history of Wisconsin with Deb. Their favorite destinations were Door County and Wisconsin Dells. They also enjoyed many trips to the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas. Tim always said Deb was his angel.

In addition to his parents, Tim was predeceased by his brother, James Pautsch and two sisters: Jaymee Vosskuil and Susan Johnson.

Tim is survived and will be dearly missed by his wife, Deb Salta, and brothers: Paul (Brenda) Pautsch, Tom Pautsch, Dennis (Carol) Pautsch, Dave Pautsch, and brother-in-law, Rick Salta. Tim also had 3 Step Children, Jason Riha, Kim (Ben) Katz, Kari Ann Haelfrisch and 2 Grandchildren, Ethan and Evan Riha. We cannot leave out his very special protector and best friend, Lucy.

We would like to extend a special thanks to the Hospice Team of ThedaCare at Home. Beth, Tina, Ally, and Wendy were adored by Tim and were a blessing to our family.
