Dec. 31, 1960 ó June 29, 2017
Tim Mauck of Waukesha, surrounded by loved ones and good friends, passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, June 29, 2017, at the age of 56 after a short battle with cancer.
Tim was born on December 31, 1960, in Dayton, Ohio, the son of William and Betty Lou Mauck.
He met Stephanie Duvall his freshman year at Miami (of Ohio) University, where he played clarinet in the marching band. He later married Stephanie on June 15, 1985, and they have spent the last 32 years together, building a life based on love and commitment to each other and to their family.
Tim was a man of great faith. His service to St. Johnís Lutheran Church was notable, both as a key leader and by his participation on mission trips. He was passionate about serving others, and especially the people of El Salvador.
His warm and welcoming smile could light up a room, and his gifts of leadership and organization were indispensable. He was always willing to help others and lived his life knowing he had a greater purpose. He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, relative and friend, as well as a dedicated employee.
Tim worked as an account manager for Envision IT.
He loved watching Major League Baseball and cheered on the Brewers and the Reds (and not in that order,) as well as the Cincinnati Bengals. Tim also loved to play fantasy baseball and football, as it was a way to connect his love of sports with his love of his friends. Tim was also an Eagle Scout and active in his community through many service organizations, and was a member of the Friends of Autism. But mostly, Tim was simply a great man with a huge heart and a big laugh, who understood lifeís priorities and did his very best to inspire others to focus on whatís most important.
Tim will be greatly missed by his wife, Stephanie; children, Julia and Robert ďRobĒ Mauck; parents, William Mauck and Betty Mauck; siblings and nieces/nephews, Linda (Scott) Smith, Taylor and Cori; Janie (Shelia Storck) Mauck; and James (Marilyn) Mauck, Jordan, Taryn and Cameron; sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Suzanne (Terry) Godown, Katie, and Rachel; and his best friend Keith (Dianne) Weiskittle, who was like a brother to him and incredibly supportive during his battle. He will also be missed by many friends, neighbors, co-workers and other relatives.
The family would like to thank the many doctors, nurses, therapists, friends and family members that took such special care of Tim while he battled his disease. They would also like to give special recognition to Timís employer, who provided financial stability and unwavering support during an incredibly difficult time. In the true spirit of Timís giving nature, he chose to donate his body to the Medical College of Wisconsin.
