Raymond A. “Butch” Mallmann, age 50, of Chilton, died on Friday, June 23, 2017 surrounded by family at his home in the Town of Brothertown.  He was born January 15, 1967 in Chilton, son of Raymond Mallmann and the late Irene (Damrow) Mallmann.  

Butch proudly served his country as a member of the United State Army Reserve from 1984-1990.  During this time, he married the love of his life, Bonnie Propson on May 14, 1988 at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Kloten.

During his life, Butch worked around Calumet County, holding positions at the Mink Farm in New Holstein, Chilton Plating, Tecumseh, and at Brillion Iron Works where he eventually became Assistant Supervisor.  

He was a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church and was the Charter President of the Chilton Jaycees where he also had served as a regional officer.  

Butch was an avid Facebook user who couldn’t put down the games, ‘Farmville’ and ‘Mafia Wars’.  Although his online presence was monumental, Butch loved to spend time outdoors; especially time spent camping, golfing or traveling someplace warm with his family. For Butch, family was paramount.  He cherished every moment spent with his revered wife, children, sisters, cousins and many, many friends.  

Butch will be remembered for his funny and light hearted personality who was always able to lighten the mood in the most charming ways.  He was known to make the best out of every situation, including dressing up like a Ninja to go to his cancer treatment in order to brighten someone else's day.  Everyone who knew Butch loved him and will remember his big heart and generous personality.

Survivors include his wife: Bonnie; his father: Raymond; his children: Brock Mallmann and fiancé, Rebecca Van Den Elzen, Brienne Mallmann and his sisters: Beverly (Steve) Owen, Debra (Glen) Solchenberger, Cindy (Otto) Mroczynski, Vicky (Tom) Stockland, Lisa (Jay) Schwarz, Lori (Tim) Bastian, & Sherry (Joe) Bonlander. Butch is further survived by nieces, nephews, in-laws, other relatives, many friends, and the numerous members of “Butch’s Army”.

He was preceded in death by his mother: Irene Mallmann.

Funeral service will be at 11:00 am on Thursday, June 29, 2017 at Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton.  Burial will be in the St. Mary Catholic Cemetery in Chilton.  Visitation will be at the Wieting Family Funeral Home from 3:00 pm until 7:00 pm on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 and on Thursday from 9:00 am until 10:30 am.  Following services, a gathering and celebration of Butch’s life will take place at the Mallmann residence.  In support of “Butch’s Army”, everyone attending the visitation, service, or celebration is invited and encouraged to wear the color purple, including their “Butch’s Army” shirts. 

Butch’s family would like to extend a sincere Thank You to Fox Valley Hematology & Oncology for their care and compassion shown to both Butch and his entire family.

I only knew Ray for less than a year, but in that time he taught me a lot about facing adversity. Loved his sense of humor! Anyone who knew Ray is a better person because of that friendship.
