Daniel J. “Tito” Babl, 81, Schofield, died at home peacefully with family on Saturday April 24, 2021.
He was born February 11, 1940 in Wausau, son of the late George and Rose (Corazalla) Babl. On February 13, 1965 he married Sandra Lang at St. Anne Catholic Church, Wausau. She survives. Tito was a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps.
For 35 years, he was the owner and operator of Tito Excavation a business that continues to be family owned. Tito was a regular fixture at the Log Cabin Restaurant and before cell phone usage became commonplace, everyone knew that they could leave a message there for him during the day.
