Obituary: Bryan William Mahute

May 13, 2022

Bryan William Mahute, age 50, a Manitowoc resident, died Friday, May 13, 2022 at Vince Lombardi Cancer Center, Aurora BayCare of Green Bay, after a brutal battle with stage 4 lung cancer, which he faced head on and put up a magnificent fight.

Bryan was the beloved son of Larry and Mary Mahute of Chicago & Sister Bay, husband to Heidi A. Mahute, and father of Brandon and Robert Mahute. He also leaves behind his brother Douglas Mahute, wife Adrianna, and Niece Ashley Mahute, along with two aunts, Gerri and Barb, both of Chicago, his ex-wife and friend Nicole, and many other friends.

Originally from Chicago, Bryan worked for public safety as a police officer and firefighter. He also served as a firefighter in St. Marys, Georgia. Bryan moved to Manitowoc in 2010 and began working for Orion Energy Systems for 10 years where he leaves behind many dear loved friends. He had a special love for his cherished dog Javier Baez, whom never left his side when he was sick. Bryan had many fond long-lasting experiences in his life, a passion for being a triathlon team member, an avid model train enthusiast, a lifetime Chicago Cubs fan and a love of dogs and music (he should have been on name that tune). He also enjoyed spending time with his son Brandon at the shooting range or just talking. Bryan had a unique Bryanism and unique whit and keen sense of humor which his family and friends appreciated. The fond memories will forever be remembered.

Cremation has occurred at the Harrigan Parkside Crematory and a celebration of life will be held in late summer for family and friends. Donations may be made in Bryan’s name to the Lakeshore Humane Society, 1551 N 8th St, Manitowoc, WI 54220, (920)684-5401, or adopt your own Javier Baez in memory of Bryan.
