Fred Jahnke

Fred Joseph Jahnke

Age 54, passed away on Sept. 3, 2020, in his wife’s arms surrounded by their children. Fred was born on Nov. 10, 1965 to Gail Hofmann and Donald Shuckhart and was united in marriage to Tory Arnoldussen on July 7, 1990. Fred used his passion for computers to provide support as an IT Manager at Total Energy Systems with the Morley-Murphy Company, and his dedication to helping others extended beyond his work to every aspect of his life. Fred enjoyed trips to the casino, but his luck was truly realized in family time, including trips to Florida with his wife and children. He was immensely proud of his children’s accomplishments, each graduating college and pursuing careers in service to others. Fred is survived by his wife: Tory; three children: Morgan, McKenzi, and Calvin; his mother: Gail Jahnke; his siblings: Al (Linda) Jahnke, May (Randy) Fuss, Dean (Judy) Jahnke, Deb (Chuck) Wolf, Michelle Jahnke, Jane Jahnke, and Don (Erika) Shuckhart Jr.; his mother-in-law and father-in-law: Donna and Ervin Arnoldussen, a brother-in-law: Todd (Mary) Arnoldussen, and a sister-in-law: Tammy (Jay) Van Deurzen, nieces; nephews; and other relatives and friends. Fred was preceded in death by his father: Jeral Jahnke, his biological father: Don Shuckart, and his infant brother: Timmy. The funeral liturgy for Fred was held Sept. 10 at St. Katharine Drexel Parish, St. Mary site, Kaukauna. Tory would like to extend her sincere thanks to Fred’s co-workers and management at Total Energy Systems for support, Deacon Steve Vande Hey for spiritual guidance, the healthcare professionals of the 7th floor at ThedaCare Appleton and ThedaCare at Home Hospice for their medical and emotional care, and her children for more than can be expressed in words. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for contributions to help cover the cost of services and to fund a scholarship for Kaukauna Area School District students.
