Walter R. Uttech
Walter R. Uttech peacefully went to meet his Lord and Savior on October 30, 2015, at the age of 92.
Walter was born on June 25, 1923 in Watertown, the son of Frank and Irma (Nickels) Uttech. He was received as a child of God at his baptism on July 8, 1923. Walter confessed his faith at his confirmation on March 13, 1937. Walter truly lived his confirmation verse throughout his earthly life ..."Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you". 1 Peter 5:7.
On September 4, 1949, at St. John's Lutheran Church, Watertown, the church at which he was baptized and confirmed, he married Ruth V. Sell. Prior to retiring Walter worked at G. B. Lewis Company and Menasha Corporation in Watertown.
During his earthly pilgrimage, Walter remained an active lifelong member at St. John's Lutheran Church. He was very involved in the deaf community especially with the Silent Dodgers of Juneau/Beaver Dam and the WELS Mission to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Walter enjoyed gardening, his daily walks, and spending time with his neighbors, family and friends.
Walter will be deeply missed by his family. He is survived by his wife Ruth, numerous nieces, nephews, sister-in-laws, other relatives, friends and neighbors. Walter was preceded in death by his parents, four brothers and four sisters.
A Christian funeral will be held on Wednesday, November 4 at 11am at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Watertown with Rev. Douglas Carter officiating. Visitation will be on Wednesday, beginning at 9:30am until the time of service. Burial will take place at the Lutheran Cemetery in Watertown immediately following the service. Memorials may be given to St. John's Lutheran Evangelical Church or to the WELS Mission to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
