Raymond M. Danke

Raymond M. Danke (Ray Ray), 45, of Shawano, has gone to be with the Lord.

Ray passed away on Oct. 25, 2017, in Louisiana surrounded by family and friends. He is the son of the late Michael L. Danke and Theresa (Bushman) Marohl.

Raymond was a very fun loving guy who always wanted to make people laugh and smile. He loved spending time with family, singing karaoke and doing what he wanted. He was never afraid to try something new. He has touched many people’s lives over the years; when people think of him they smile and laugh. In 2009, Ray moved to Louisiana with his girlfriend, Tiffany, to begin their future together. After being diagnosed with kidney disease, Ray started his treatments to keep things under control. Sadly, the Lord decided it was time for him to come home.

Ray was preceded in death by his father, Michael L. Danke Sr.; brother, Michael L. Danke Jr.; grandparents Emery and Ruth Danke, Mildred and Jim Lashbrook and Sylvester Bushman.

He is survived by his mother, Theresa (Mickey) Marohl; brothers, Chad (Gloria) Danke, Shawano, Dewayne (Jeanine) Danke, Brillion; nieces and nephews, Thomas (Krista) Watzka, Mishicot, Sam Watzka, Cody (Zari) Watzka, Amber Watzka (fiance Lynwood), all of Shawano, Stephanie Danke, Seymour, Masen Danke, Brillion, Alex Fisher, Green Bay, Jessica Danke, California, Mikayla (Zach) Faulkner, California, and many great-nieces and great-nephews.

Raymond will be sadly missed by all. In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund is being set up to help pay for expenses.
