Wayne E. Schlitz, age 83, of Burlington, passed away on Sunday, March 31, 2019 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

Born in Burlington on June 29, 1935, he was the son of Edward and Amelia (nee Richter) Schlitz. He was a lifelong resident of Burlington where he attended St. Charles Grade School and graduated from Burlington High School.

On August 31, 1957 in Burlington, he was united in marriage to Nancy Fell. Nancy preceded him in death on March 7, 2008. In 1962, Wayne started Schlitz Vinyl and Carpet Company. He successfully ran his business for 39 years, retiring in 1997. He was a member of the Burlington Jaycees and Lions Club, Town Fryer “Breakfast Club” and Tuesday Hackers Golf League. He enjoyed bowling, fishing, gardening, playing cards with his friends and spending time with his family. He especially enjoyed playing Sheepshead. Wayne was a very generous person and gifted craftsman; making many wooden toys for family, friends and charities.

Wayne is survived by his children, Jeanne (Kurt) Otter, Joan (Robert) Kawalec and Julie Schlitz; grandchildren, Rachel, Lauren and Lance Otter and Carly and Andrew Kawalec; sisters-in-law, Camille Schlitz Hechimovich, Jeanne LaBelle and Sharon Fell Vande Sand; brother-in-law, Bill (Carol) Fell; along with many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
