Thomas P. Daun, age 66, of Chilton, passed away from natural causes unrelated to COVID19, at his home on August 6, 2020. He was born February 9, 1954, son of the late Art and Margaret Daun. He married Connie Mueller on October 13, 1984, at St. Mary Catholic Church in Chilton.

Tom worked his entire life, a 47 year career, at Chilton Trailers.  He was somewhat of an introvert, and gentle; a very good listener with a quiet sense of humor. Tom was a friend to everyone.  Connie remembers him as the opposite to her loud and talkative personality, and always said he made her a better person.  He never missed a day of waking Connie up to say good bye, “I love you” with a kiss before going off to work.  They balanced each other out and loved spending time together. They enjoyed going out for dinner and drinks every Friday night. He was an avid golfer, studying and practicing the game since he was 10 years old. He also enjoyed bowling, camping, gambling, and hunting.  He cared a great deal for his children and granddaughters and always hoped for the best for them. His mom and dad lovingly called him “Tommy Tittlemouse” throughout his life because of his favorite book that she read to him every day when he was battling rheumatic fever as a child. 

Tom is survived by his wife, Connie; their children: Stacey Daun and Adam Daun; daughter-in-law: Jodi Daun; two grandchildren: Abby and Sam; siblings: Ruth (Ken) Hedberg, Julie Daun, Bob (Kathleen) Daun, and Jeff (Joyce) Daun; sisters-in-law: Ann (Bill) Juckem, Theresa Hostettler, Gail (Marvin) Thiel, and Karen (Mike) Peil; brothers-in-law: Ray (JoAnn) Mueller, Dick (Carol) Mueller, Glenn (Jeannie) Mueller, Carl (Edie) Mueller, Pete (Carol) Mueller, and Grubby Marose. He is further survived by many aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents, Art and Margaret; Connie’s parents: Ray and Rita Mueller;  a sister: Ginny Marose; a brother: Gary Daun; and brothers-in-law: Ronald Mueller and Dennis Hostettler. He was further preceded in death by many aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews.

Visitations will take place from 4:00pm until 7:00pm at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton on Wednesday, August 12, and again from 10:00am until 11:00am at the funeral home on Thursday, August 13. There will be a prayer service following Wednesday’s visitation.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established in the name of Thomas Daun.
Tom was a great childhood friend. We lived across the road from the Daun family for two homes of ours. We played softball, "puffball" destruction, had many hikes in the Ledge, hide 'n seek, and of course "kick the can!!" We all had a GOOD TIME!!
I felt so very bad for Tom when he had Reumatic Fever about age eleven. It effected his health badly, I believe.
I look forward to living in Our Father's Kingdom in the eternal life!!

Dear Connie & Family
Three words describe Tom- Kind and gentle
You have my sympathy and prayers. You were an awesome couple -and still are. People liked being around the two of you.
Connie, there are no words that can ease this time of sorrow, how I wish there were as I would repeat them over and over to you.
Deepest sympathy to you.

Tom was always the cool uncle who wore shades and rode a motorcycle. I was scared to go on a ride on that thing when I was 10, but I secretly was thrilled to feel that cool too. He was a kind, funny, and a font of laughter and smiles. We will all miss him.

Dj Hostettler (Nephew) - Aug. 11, 2020

Connie, words cannot accurately express sympathy during a time like this. But I'll always remember Tom's smile. Even though i didn't know him well, he was always so kind to me. I'll never forget the kind of man he was. Sending you lots of love and prayers.

Kris Hostettler (Nephew) - Aug. 11, 2020

The word that comes up for me when thinking of Tom is warmth. He was so very kind and easy to talk to. I remember your wedding when I was 12 vividly. Thanks for sharing pictures and memories.

My deepest sympathy to Connie and family.
Tom and I stood up together in my brother Jeff's wedding and I remember him being such a nice guy. He and Jeff were big golfing buddies so I can imagine them golfing together once again. Rest in peace Tom.
