Cletus attended Blessed Sacrament Elementary School and graduated from Edgewood High School in 1957.  In 1958 he met Peg “Rose” Schey and they wed in 1961.  The couple moved to Watertown and opened Warren Schey House of Music for 15 years before moving to Minocqua, WI where he was a successful Real Estate broker until 2011.  He retired in Middleton, WI.
