Robert “Bob” Schubring, 74, peacefully passed away surrounded by loved ones, at Aspirus Wausau Hospital on August 31, 2021. He was born October 7th, 1946, in Wausau, Wisconsin. He graduated from Wausau East in the year of 1964 where he played on the football team. He married the love of his life and best friend, Bonnie, on May 25th, 1968. They went on to be married for 53 wonderful and joy filled years. Bob was a lithographer at the Wausau Daily Herald for many years and then went on to work at Marathon Communications where he drove truck. He and Bonnie welcomed their one and only son, Kirt, on April 7th, 1969. Bobs true pride and joy was his granddaughters, Regan and Teilyn.
Bob was an avid hunter and fisherman. He was happiest when he was outdoors and spending time in nature. He was a board member of Whitetails Unlimited for over 25 years. He and Bonnie loved to spend time at their camper at Camp Holiday and also time with friends and family at Wildcat Lodge. Boulder Junction was their second home.
Bob loved to travel. He went on numerous trips hunting and fishing to many states out west and in Canada. Some of his favorite places he ever visited were the Grand Teton Mountains and Yellow Stone National Park.
But he always loved returning home to his family. His two granddaughters, Regan and Teilyn, were his greatest joy. He loved to attend their sporting events while they were growing up and cheering them on at anything and everything they did. If you talked to Bob, chances are you heard about both of the girls.
Bob was also an incredible cook. If you had the privilege of trying any and all of his cooking, you were blessed with the best. His specialties were his homemade soups, Hawaiian cookies, pasta salads, and the famous Party Potatoes. He would always say that his secret ingredients were love and butter. And anyone who got to eat his food would agree.
