Clyde A. "Clydeo" Czoschke of Hartland passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at his home Sunday, May 15, 2011, at the age of 57. Clyde was born Oct. 5, 1953, the son of Armond and Lucille Czoschke in Hustisford, and grew up there on a dairy farm.

After graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a degree in accounting, he began his business career at Arthur Anderson. Clyde married the love of his life, Rena Myott, on June 27, 1987. During his life, he worked as a real estate developer and was the proud owner of Charlie Brown’s Bar in Beaver Dam. Clyde was an active member of Mount Calvary Lutheran Church in Waukesha. He was a master angler, bird-watcher, proud Badgers fan and frequently enjoyed his swimming pool. Clyde also loved his Porsches, of which he had four during his lifetime. His greatest joy was spending time with his family.

Clyde will be dearly missed by his wife of more than 23 years, Rena; his children, Jason (Darnelle) Richards of New Berlin, Marcus (Lisa) Richards of Oconomowoc, Ashley Czoschke of Hartland and Alexandria Czoschke of Minneapolis, Minn. Clyde is also a loving grandfather to Riley, Fay and Lydia Richards; and a dear brother to Steve and Stan Czoschke and Colette (Kevin) Braun.
