Shannon Kasten

June 19, 1968 — June 29, 2022

Kronenwetter

Shannon “Shan” Lee Kasten, 54, of Kronenwetter, unexpectedly passed away on June 29, 2022.

He was born in Wausau on June 19, 1968, the son of Richard and Juliana (Samz) Kasten.  He graduated from Wausau East High School.  On August 17, 1991, he married Jackie Dodd. They were married for 30 years and were inseparable.  If you saw one, you knew the other was close by.

Shannon began working for Rosemurgy in Wausau as a clean-up and rust-proof specialist.  He worked hard and worked his way up to an automotive technician while working beside his father.  He eventually opened up his own shop - Auto Jockeys - in April of 2007, along with his friend and business partner, Jaren Semling.

He loved spending time with his family and friends.  He was an avid believer in “Sunday Funday” and enjoyed riding his motorcycle, camping, and checking out local bands and concerts.  Shan was a social butterfly – weather it was hanging out with his Relo family or just sitting by the fire with Jackie.  He always made you feel welcome and would greet you with a “Hello Hello”.  He was the “go to guy” for so many people. A loving and devoted husband, father, son, and friend who will be forever missed.

Survivors include his devoted wife, Jackie; daughter, Danielle (Will) Kasten; son, Colton (Arica) Kasten; parents, Richard “Dick” and Juliana Kasten; granddaughters, Laionna and Kaya; grandsons, Marsean and Bryson; and many other relatives and friends.

Visitation will be held from 3:00 P.M. until 5:00 P.M. on Wednesday, July 6, 2022, at Brainard Funeral Home- Everest Chapel, 5712 Memorial Ct., Weston.  There will be a time to share favorite memories beginning at 5:00 P.M.
