Keith A. "Gus" Quatman, 59, of Ossian passed away Tuesday, August 9, 2016. He was born on March 30, 1957 in Phoenix, Arizona to the late Philip A. and Catherine (Goeke) Quatman. He worked as a teacher at ITT, owner of a NAPA Auto Parts store in Marion, O'Reilly Auto Parts, and most recently at Stoops Freightliner. He was a member of St. Aloysius Catholic Church, Yoder, American Legion Post 241, and served formerly as president of the Ossian's Men's Association. His wife, family, friends, faith, Cleveland Browns football, IU basketball, golf, and Nascar racing were the centers of his life. He was filled with such a great amount of love that he always had that love to share with all others. He unselfishly gave to others, whether it was his talents, financial support, or on those "rare" occasions, his opinion. He loved his nieces and nephews, and always would willingly drive to provide support for them in all of their endeavors. He always was quick with a smile and willing to do any job to help his family, friends, or community. You could always count on "Gus". He is already sorely missed and we can thank God for all the time we were allowed to share all of Gus's unique gifts. Surviving family include his wife of nearly 32 years and love of his life, Nancy; brothers, Tony (Debbie), Hank (Debbie), Jim (Terri) Jon (Ellen), Jerry, and Ed ( Paula) Quatman; sisters, Sister Jane Quatman, Pat (Tom) Scullin, Kit (Ken) Weir; and Uncle Gus to many many nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he was preceded in passing by his sister, Phyllis Rainey; niece, Carrie Rainey Gray; and father-in-law, Quentin Freiburger. Mass of Christian Burial will be 10:00 am on Saturday, August 13, 2016 at St. Aloysius Catholic Church, 14623 Bluffton Rd., Yoder. Visitation will be from 4-7 pm on Friday, August 12, 2106 at Elzey-Patterson-Rodak Funeral Home, 120 West Mill St., Ossian with a rosary service at 3:30 pm.
