David Lee Schepp

September 4, 1951 ~ May 11, 2022 (age 70)


On Wednesday May 11th, 2022, we said goodbye to Dave, a loving brother, husband, father, and grandfather.


Dave was born in Wausau, WI on September 4th, 1951.  He was the son of the late Wilbert and Florence (Kolter) Schepp.  Dave had three brothers, Wayne, Dale, and Keith.  He grew up on Randolph St, the northwest side of Wausau.


Dave graduated from Wausau High School in 1969 and went on to work for Marathon Electric retiring as a journeyman tool and die maker after 44 years (9/8/69-8/23/2013). He was a very active union member in IBEW Local#1791 and served on both the boards at the Marathon Electric Employee’s Credit Union, and the Wausau Labor Temple.


Dave met the love of his life, Yvonne Scheffler, on September 5th, 1971.  The two were married on April 8th, 1972, at St. Annes church in Wausau.  Their love for one another is truly amazing and is a testament to the family they created.   They had most recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary.


Together they had 2 sons, Chad and Casey, and one daughter Stacey who passed away, shortly after birth.  Dave was involved with many of his son activities, most notably his involvement in St. Michael’s Boy Scout Troop 456, frequently driving and chaperoning groups for seasonal troop camping events, volunteer activities, as well as helping both his boys attain the rank of Eagle Scout.


Dave will be remembered for many things…most of which will be his laid-back demeanor and sense of humor. He grew up enjoying Western movies and then matured in the 60’s and motorcycle culture. He loved shooting pool, playing horseshoes, hunting, and fishing. But what he loved the most, were family and friends! He also had the ability to make people feel special and at-ease, even if you were new to the group. You were always invited to play a game of cribbage or join him for an Old Fashion or Old Style.


Dave is preceded in death by grandparents; William and Lillian Schepp /Fabian and Margaret Kolter; Parents: Wilbert and Florence Schepp; brothers: Dale and Wayne Schepp; daughter: Stacey Schepp.


Survivors include his wife, Yvonne Schepp; brother: Keith (Sue) Schepp, sister-in-law: Pat Schepp, sons: Chad (Mandy) Schepp and Casey (Petra) Schepp; grandchildren; Cheyenne, Brynn, Sunni, Harley, and Malik; and many other family and friends.
