Keith “Nummy” Allen Sherfinski, 74, Wausau, died Saturday March 13, 2021 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
He was born November 24, 1946 in Wausau, Wisconsin, the son of the late Henry and Cecilia (Hoffman) Sherfinski.
Keith was a veteran of the Vietnam War serving in the 1st Cavalry Division, 15th Medical Battalion in 1966.
After coming home, Keith studied to become an electrician where he worked at Weyerhaeuser Paper Mill which later became Domtar, retiring after over 40 years.
He loved all sports especially the Green Bay Packers, Wisconsin Badger football and basketball and the Milwaukee Brewers. In his younger years, Keith played slow and fast pitched softball as an outfielder for Treu’s Tic Toc, House of Imports and the Lighthouse. He shared many memorable stories of the good friends and times he had while playing ball. After retirement, you could find Keith on the golf course with his good friends.
He was an avid outdoorsman and enjoyed hunting as well as fishing for crappie in the summer and ice fishing on Lake Wausau in the winters. Keith always had a beautiful backyard full of flowers and enjoyed watching birds, particularly the “hummers”.
Keith was a stoic and proud man with a soft, kind demeanor. Family was very important to Keith and his son’s Troy and Brad were the light of his life and his granddaughter Kendal the apple of his eye.
Survivors include his sons Troy (Julie) Sherfinski, granddaughter Kendal and Brad (Amy) Sherfinski, grandson Alex Vierzba, siblings Sandra Fox, Darlene (Jim) LeSage, Rand (Joanna) Sherfinski; as well as several nephews and nieces.
Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother-in-law Tony Fox and niece Sabina Fox.
The family would like to thank Aspirus Wausau Hospital’s ICU and Palliative Care staff for the wonderful care they provided. Also, a very special thank you to Frank Losinski and Rachel Monday.
A celebration of Keith’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to a charity of your choice.
