Obituary for Jeffery C. Radewan
September 15, 1964 – June 24, 2023
Jeffery C. Radewan, 58, a resident of Rochester, Wis., for over 50 years, and formerly of Union Grove, Wis., passed away on June 24, 2023, at St. Lukes in Milwaukee, after a non-life-threatening dental procedure. He will be deeply missed by many friends and family.
Jeff was born on Sept. 15, 1964, in Racine, Wis., to his mother, Fawna Faye Nimmo and James Radewan.
Jeff was a remarkable man, he started driving truck at 18 years old, and in a few short years he started his own company; Jeff Radewan Trucking, which he owned and operated.
Jeffery had many talents and truly was a Jack of all Trades. With Jeff’s superb abilities, there wasn’t much he couldn’t fix, build, weld or fabricate. Jeff designed and built many trailers, as well as many specialized equipment pieces. Jeff even redesigned a piece of equipment used by the Railroad to mow around and maintain the rails. Jeff not only built the house that he and his fiancée, Rebecca, lived in but also built a house for his daughter, Jacki. No project was ever too challenging for him. Jeff was always there to help his family and friends.
Jeff loved to go to auctions; he was the best at wheeling and dealing a sale. Jeffery was also an amazing storyteller and could embellish numerous stories from his past. Besides hanging out with his many friends, Jeff loved to spend time with his fiancée and their two dogs, Otis and Harley.
Jeff is survived by his fiancée, friend and partner of 17 years, Rebecca Rauterberg; father, James Radewan; daughter, Jacqueline (Katie) Radewan; brothers, Joseph Radewan and James (Sandi) Radewan. Jeff is further survived by extended family and numerous friends.
Jeff is preceded in death by his loving mother, Fawna Faye Nimmo, and his grandparents.
An open house celebration, in Jeff’s honor, will be held on Aug. 6, 2023, at Integrity Celebrations Center (2789 Browns Lake Drive, Burlington, WI 53105) from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, Jeff’s fiancée appreciates memorials or donations to help during this difficult time.
