Oimoen, Otto C.

MADISON - Otto C. Oimoen, age 65, of Madison, passed away unexpectedly at home on Monday, June 21, 2021. Otto was born in Madison on March 12, 1956, son of Frances Jane and Gerald Oimoen.

Otto was a 1974 graduate of Madison West High School. He worked part-time at Smoky's Club during high school and at his father's movie theater, The Mode Theater in Waterloo. After high school he worked for the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Services Facilities Planning and Management, where he stayed until his retirement in 2020. He was awarded several plaques honoring him for his 43-plus years of service.

Otto loved to build and fix things, making frequent trips to the home improvement stores.

He was passionate about politics and the environment and was a lifelong Madisonian. He had many dogs throughout his life, each of which held a special place in his heart.

Otto also liked to cook. He was known for his famous lasagna parties at the Blue Moon!

He is survived by his sister, Mary (Chuck) Katic, Fitchburg; his nephew, John (Phala) Katic, Sun Prairie; his niece, Christina (Chandan) Katic, Madison; two surviving aunts, Sarah Knoche, Waunakee, and JoAnn Rue, Mount Horeb; and many cousins and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents and many aunts and uncles.
