Kenneth L. Scheffler

March 19, 1933 ~ November 21, 2018 (age 85)

Kenneth L Scheffler, 85, passed peacefully on Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

Ken was born on March 19,1933 in Wausau to the late Herman and Ella Scheffler. He married the light of his life, Joyce Stuplich on February 7, 1953 and together they celebrated 65 years of marriage. She was his world.

Ken was a devoted family man and loved to work. A true craftsman, he took pride in his fine carpentry skills, but time spent in nature brought him his greatest joy. Stories of walks in the woods, walleye fishing on Bear Lake and exploring shorelines with his grandson Tim were numerous. Ken was a veteran and educator. He taught us so much.

Survivors include his daughter, Candace Schneider, grandson Timothy (Tara) Schneider and great-grandsons, Finley and Boden. He is also survived by one of ten brothers and sisters, his brother Roger (Doris) Scheffler.

Ken is preceded in death by his wife Joyce who passed August 20, 2018. Together forever. Life eternal.

A gathering of family and friends will be held Friday, November 30, 2018 at First United Methodist Church, 903 Third St, Wausau. Visitation will begin at 1pm, with a chapel service at 1:30 and a coffee social will follow. Rev Jayneann McIntosh will officiate.
