Arthur L. Pfaff

April 5, 1942 Ė Nov. 20, 2012

Arthur L. Pfaff of the Town of Waukesha, formerly of Racine, died unexpectedly Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2012, at the age of 70. He was born in Mauston on April 5, 1942, the son of the late Fred and Meda (nee St. Clair) Pfaff.

He was a graduate of Mauston High School. In August 1963, he married Susan (nee Kapellusch); she preceded him in death March 4, 2001. On May 12, 2012, he married Joyce (nee Pillsbury) at First United Methodist Church in Waukesha. Arthur was a longtime employee of Twin Disc, retiring in 2007. Arthur was a true outdoorsman and loved nature. He enjoyed hunting, baiting deer, feeding the birds and the bears. He had a great passion for going to the northwoods and spending time with his grandchildren at his cabin in Newald. The hummingbirds at his cabin and wildlife by his treestand will surely miss him. He also enjoyed NASCAR, Dale Earnhardt and Dale Earnhardt Jr. He was a former member of the Racine Sportsman Club.

He is further survived by his sisters, Delores (the late Howard) Thompson of La Crosse and Evelyn (the late John) Cowan of Mauston; his sister- in-law, Carol Pfaff of Rockford, Ill.; along with aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

In addition to his first wife, Susan, he was preceded in death by his infant daughter, Kelly and his brother Alfred Pfaff.
