Tim Mero, 79, of Wausau, passed through death on Thursday, February 11, 2021 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital, with his wife and daughters by his side.

The son of the late Gordon and Gertrude (Hall) Mero, he was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, on January 5, 1942.

Tim was a loving and devoted husband of 50 years, a father, grandpa, brother, uncle, friend and a remarkable human being. He was an inventor, passionate historian, solver of all puzzles, and an artisan, who enjoyed sharing his many talents and gifts with all those around him. He embraced life through his sense of humor and mischievous wit. He loved nothing more than hitting the road with his wife in search of good food and great wine, enjoying the journey as much as the destination. Above all, he treasured spending time with his family. Tim served our country with honor and loved his wife and children with all of his heart. We are grateful for his life and for the guidance and good humor that he shared.

Tim is survived by his wife, Kathy; five daughters, Leah (Manish) Gajria, Rachel (Jerald Kraft) Mero, Sarah (Brad) Keene, Jessica Mero and Annie (Shea) Kisabeth; six grandchildren, Noah, Nikhil, Morgan, Madison, Brennan and Kellan; one brother, Tom (Joan) Mero; two sisters, Gerry (Don) Chapdelaine and Mary Mero; seven brothers and sisters-in-law, Peggy Hickey, Mike (Moira) Hickey, Jim (Susie) Hickey, Terry (Sue) Hickey, Patty (Al) Poticny, Bridget (Mark) Griffin and Eileen (Pat) Meehan; and lots and lots of nieces and nephews.

A private funeral Mass will be celebrated on Friday, February 19, 2021 at St. Anne Catholic Church, Wausau and will be livestreamed for the public at beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Friday. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that memorials be made to Catholic Charities Warming Center in Wausau, Wisconsin.
