Kluetz, Daniel Thomas (13 AUG 1953 - 23 DEC 2017)

Daniel Thomas Kluetz, 64, Wausau, died Saturday, December 23, 2017 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

Dan was born August 13, 1953 in Wausau to the late Alfred and Dorothy (Myska) Kluetz. After having known Kim (Syring) Cronce for many years, the couple married on June 10, 2006 at St. Paul United Church of Christ.

Dan worked for many years as a custodian at the Marathon County Courthouse. Dan was a kind and caring man who dearly loved his family. Throughout his life, he often sacrificed his time to care for family when they were ill. Dan’s genuine laughter was infectious to those around him and he enjoyed joking with friends and coworkers. At home, he was an excellent cook and took meticulous care of his surroundings. Enjoying the simpler things in life, Dan loved spending the evening shooting pool and drinking a beer with Kim at home. He also enjoyed spending time doing yard work and riding around the yard on his riding lawn mower. For many years, Dan had his four-legged companion, Shiloh, accompany him everywhere he went and for many walks through Marathon Park.

Dan is survived by his beloved wife of 11 years, Kim; step-children, David (Shannon) Cronce and Krissy (Brent) Dabler; grandchildren, Aubrey, Owen, Summer, Autumn and Madalyn; nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

He is preceded in death by his siblings, Richard, Tom, Carol Krahn and infant brother, Donald Thomas.

The funeral service for Dan will be at 6:00 PM on Friday, December 29, 2017 at Helke Funeral Home, Wausau. Visitation will be from 2:00 PM until the time of service on Friday. Burial will be at a later date in Pine Grove Cemetery.
