Edward Arnold Raduenz was born on February 27, 1932 in Watertown, the son of Albert and Ruth (Lange) Raduenz. He was a 1950 graduate of Watertown High School. Edward served in the United States Marine Corp during the Korean War. On August 16, 1952, he married Barbara L. Henriott at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Watertown. Barbara preceded him in death on December 12, 1999. He was a member of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Watertown.
Eddie, as known by many, was a machinist and mechanic of many trades. He was employed by Ladish Malting Company, Kennedy’s, and J & J Motors. In March of 1984, he started “Eddie’s Auto Mart” which served many friends, family, and customers. He worked until he couldn’t and always made sure that everything was in working condition no matter what the issue.

Eddie enjoyed spending time at the Watertown Airport and Oshkosh’s yearly EAA, and was always interested in aviation, where he soon learned the ins and outs of an airplane whether he was fixing it or flying. Summer weekends were spent with all his family at his Jorden Lake residence and was a priority near and dear to his heart.
Edward is survived by his children, Wanda Ostrander of New London; Ron (Peggy) Raduenz of Watertown; Robert (Alison) Raduenz of Johnson Creek; daughter-in-law, Julie (Steve) Schultz of Waukesha; special friend, Juanita Weishoff of Columbus; grandchildren: Ryan Ostrander, Nicholas (Amy) Ostrander; Jamie (Chad) Mashburn, Jonathan Raduenz, Daniel (Kayle) Raduenz, Jennifer Raduenz, Sara Raduenz, Justin (Mandie) Hall, Cody Raduenz and Jake Raduenz as well as sister, Ann (Neil) Parker of Rosholt. Four great-grandchildren and other relatives and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Barbara and son, Michael Raduenz in 1994.
Our family would like to thank Rainbow Hospice for all their support and services.
