Mortes Christian Kind was born December 13, 1952 in Fond du Lac, WI, son of the late Melvin A. and Mary L. (Jesse) Kind. He graduated from Goodrich High School in Fond du Lac in 1971. Mort was united in marriage to Jennifer Kautz in 1977 at Zion Lutheran Church, Embarrass; the couple later divorced in 1990. He was employed by Walker Forge Inc., Clintonville for a time, and later worked as a die-maker for Arrowcast Inc. in Shawano for 27 years until retirement in August 2017. Mort loved to spend time on the Cloverleaf lakes boating with family or fishing for panfish. He enjoyed golfing, especially with his brother, Mark. Mort liked to travel to warm destinations with friends and family. He was a huge Green Bay Packer fan and loved to cheer on the green and gold. Family get-togethers and entertaining were always at the top of his list, and he knew how to have a good time; either out on the dance floor or at the karaoke mic. Mort will be remembered as a man who had a tough exterior, but was like a teddy-bear on the inside with family. He was also a man who was able to see the positive side of any situation.
