Bryon D. Kees, age 53, of Chilton, died on Saturday, November 24, 2012 in the Town of Stockbridge. He was born May 20, 1959 in Chilton, son of Carol (Zastrow) Kees and the late Cletus Kees. Bryon married Catherine J. Stilp on April 29, 1990 in Stockbridge. For over 25 years, Bryon worked at Stockbridge Engineering where he diligently worked hard and accomplished any task he was asked to do. He was truly a 'Jack of all Trades' and amazed everyone with the working knowledge he possessed about everything. He remodeled and built the addition to his house brick by brick from the basement up, loving every moment knowing his work and skill was a gift from God. He was a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church, and the Brothertown Fishing Club. He was an avid outdoorsman; loving each instant of hunting, fishing, and ice fishing with the group. He was known on the lake as 'Simple Simon', traveling from location to location with his wife, 'Simon Says' looking for the most bites. He was a kind and loving man; giving of himself fully to those he loved. He is survived by his wife: Cathy; a daughter: Megan "Tootsie" Kees and her special friend, Brandon Fluhr; his mother: Carol Kees; father-in-law and step-mother-in-law: Thomas (Mary) Stilp of Stockbridge; 4 brothers: Glenn "Punk" (Charlotte) Kees of Chilton, Terry "Tub" Kees of Stockbridge, Richard (Peggy) Kees of Chilton, Wayne "Butch" (Kathy) Kees of Chilton; 2 brothers-in-law: Jeff (Cheryl) Stilp of Stockbridge, David Stilp and his fiancée Leslie Seymour of Ohio; and a sister-in-law: Jean (Al) Kohlman of Fond du Lac. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. He was preceded in death by his father: Cletus; his mother-in-law: Phyllis Stilp; and a sister-in-law: Barbara Swan. Funeral service will be at 11:30 am on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at Good Shepherd Catholic Church (54 E. Main St.) in Chilton with the Rev. Bob Kollath officiating. Friends may call at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm on Tuesday, November 27, 2012 and on Wednesday at the church from 9:30 am until 11:00 am. A parish vigil service will take place Tuesday evening at 8:00 pm at the funeral home. "…and the Lord broke for Simple Simon and said, 'They are biting over here,' and he replied, '10-4. I'll be right there…"
