Wayne Richard Fulleylove-Krause

Wayne Richard Fulleylove-Krause, 62, passed away unexpectedly on October 5th at his home in Chilton Wisconsin. He was born March 10, 1953 in Ripon, the son of Arthur and Delores (Winters) Krause.

He married Faden Fulleylove September 24, 1977 at Bethel United Methodist Church in rural Kiel. They had 4 children, Kiersten, Jorgen, Troy and Brett.

Wayne received his early education in the Ripon School District. He studied music education and piano at UW-Stevens Point, receiving a Bachelors of Music degree in 1975. Heid Music Co, was his first job after college, followed by his opening of the Calumet Piano Tuning and Repair service. As a member of the Piano Technicians Guild, he became a Master Piano Technician. Being an attorney was a life goal, so he began studying at Marquette University Law School and graduated in 1989 with a Juris Doctorate. Wayne began his 26 year law practice as a sole practitioner in Kiel, recently moving his office to his home in Charlesburg. He continued his music interest by serving as one of the Bethel United Methodist Church’s pianist and their choir director. He taught Sunday School and held many church leadership roles. Wayne directed and sang with The Men of Harmony, a mens’ gospel choir, and served as their business manager. He recently became a member of the Sheboygan Performing Arts board. He was a member of the Free and Accepted Masons.

Wayne had an exceptionally clever wit, likened to the Far Side comics. He enjoyed puzzles, especially NPR’s Sunday Puzzle with Will Shortz and Sudoko, as well as working in his shop at home. Even after his children graduated, he continued to be an avid supporter of New Holstein Athletics. He loved traveling and the many wonderful family and couple vacations taken. He was a supportive husband, always willing to attend the many banquets required by Faden’s job as Family Living Educator. He had a keen eye for a good horse and rider and participated in many horse shows cheering on family members in their competitions.

He is survived by his wife Faden, their four children Kiersten (Thomas) Woods, Jorgen Fulleylove-Krause, Troy Fulleylove-Krause, Brett Fulleylove-Krause and 3 grandchildren, Allondra Woods, Skyler Woods, and Alayna Woods. He is further survived by one nephew, Erik Krause, cousins, other relatives and friends. Preceding him in death were his parents Arthur and Delores Krause, and two brothers, Keith and David Krause.
