Norman Eugene Kautsky

Naples, FL

Norman Eugene "Red" Kautsky passed away quietly on August 29, 2018. Norman leaves his wife, Patricia; his three children, Jerri, Andy (Myra), and Debi; and his grandson Andrew.

Born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana, Norman brought his young family to Naples in 1967. Norman was the son of a natural entrepreneur and his wife, Frank H. and Hazel Kautsky. He carried on that entrepreneurial tradition throughout his life, owning several businesses in Naples over the years. Besides being devoted to his family, Norman enjoyed volunteering for several organizations, including the Shriners, the Masonic Lodge, and the Moose Lodge. When Norman's children were young, he also volunteered for athletic organizations. He coached little league baseball and spent several years as President of the Naples Little League.

Norman was a veteran of the United States Army and he enjoyed talking about his years of service stationed in Germany with the 503rd Engineers Company. That might have been the beginning of his love for travel. In his retirement years he and Patricia took many trips together all over the world.

A viewing for friends and family is planned for Tuesday, September 4, 2018 from 9:30 AM until 11:00 AM at Hodges Funeral Home at Naples Memorial Gardens 525-111th Ave N, Naples, FL 34108. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in Norman's name are suggested to the 2900 N. Rocky Point Dr., Tampa, FL 33607. Condolences may be left online at
