Thede, Michael J.
Michael J. Thede, age 52, of Chilton, died on Thursday, April 3, 2014 at Cherry Meadows Assisted Living Center in Appleton. He was born August 5, 1961 in Appleton, son of Vernon & Geraldine (Fye) Thede. Michael married Jennifer A. Roethel on October 14, 1989 in Kiel.
He was an avid outdoorsman who looked forward to hunting, fishing, and camping. Michael was extremely knowledgeable about firearms and enjoyed reloading his own ammunition. He liked cars and was a huge, huge Green Bay Packer fan, constantly checking for roster updates and following their every move. He certainly had a lot of character; forever joking around, giving friends and family a hard time, and laughing. He was an admirer of Classic Rock & Roll, but never passed up an opportunity to annoy his family on Sunday mornings with Polka music. Michael will be greatly missed by all those who loved him.
He is survived by his wife: Jennifer of Chilton; his mother: Geraldine Thede of New Holstein; his father: Vernon (Ruth) Thede of Chilton; his children: Cassandra Gehl, Chaney Thede, Zachary (Lauren) Thede, Kaitlin Thede; 2 sisters: Andrea (Randy) Stier, Dawn (Steve) Zebraitis; and a half brother: Eric (Michelle) Thede. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
He was preceded in death by a half brother: Tim Thede.
A celebration of Michael's life will be held at a later date.
Memorials given in the name of Michael J. Thede are greatly appreciated.
