Reginald Kuettner

December 13, 1933 — April 30, 2022

Reginald “Reg” Kuettner, age 88, of Hortonville, passed away to his final resting place on Saturday, April 30, 2022. Born in Elgin, IL. on December 13, 1933, to Harold and Mildred Kuettner, the family moved to Oshkosh, WI in 1945. He graduated from Oshkosh High in 1951. Reg served with the United States Army Tank Corps in Hanau, Germany from 1954 to 1956. He enlisted in the United States Air Force and served stateside as a fuel supply specialist till 1960. After working for a time at the Neenah Post Office, he attended both UWO and the Oshkosh Technical Institute. He met his future wife in lifetime partner Barbara Mooney in 1966. They were married in 1970, after which she was his rock and mainstay for 45 wonderful years. Reg operated Color – Glo Candle Products from 1971 through 1984. He then worked for a number of different firms, primarily in the giftware sales field. Eventually retired in 1999, after work in five years at Thill and Co.  In 2004, after the children were grown, Barb and Reg moved to the dream home in the peaceful surroundings outside Hortonville. They truly enjoyed the spot, with many deer parading through every day and the many other birds and assorted animals cavorting in the woods. Reg‘s loving wife Barbara passed away on April 14, 2015, the saddest day of his life, to be sure. He is survived by three wonderful children: Matt (Cindy) Kuettner of Omro, Mark Kuettner of Oshkosh, and Wendy (Jay) Schumerth of Appleton. Also, five super grandchildren whom he loved dearly: Thomas, Austin, and Kaytlin Kuettner; and Noah and Annika Schumerth. Also survived by a brother, Harold and a niece, Amy Linihan, in California, and a niece, Lisa Tetzlaff, of Oshkosh. He was proceeded in death by his parents and his sister, Pat Toohey. A private service will be held by his family. May the good Lord bless Reg with everlasting life and eternal peace. Dear Grandpa, we cannot thank you enough for the endless support you’ve given us throughout our lives. We hope to continue making you and Grandma proud as you’re smiling down upon us. Love all your grandchildren.
