Allan Edward Wesenick was born February 28, 1954, in Wausau, WI to Edward and Florence (Check) Wesenick. He was raised from the age of 4 in Weston, WI. Following a recent fall, Allan made his transition on October 24th, 2020.
Allan faced many health challenges throughout his life. Despite those challenges, he was always able to creatively adapt and do his best. He could be strong-willed, or stubborn, but underneath that stubbornness was a sharp wit and a generous heart. He loved his family deeply. His mother’s undying devotion to Allan's well-being allowed him to live a long and full life. He was equally as devoted to watching out for her and helping in any way that he could.
Allan enjoyed watching the Packers and NASCAR, occasional trips to the casino, working in the yard, being a collector of things, and spending time with his family. He loved to talk about special vacations taken with Kathy and Dean, the wildlife in the yard, and how the Packers were playing. He enjoyed his phone calls and visits with Scott, watching his nieces and nephews grow up, and also took great pride in the accomplishments of everyone in the family, including Diane with Stable Hands and Randy and Donna with Wesenick Transmission. Allan readily shared his huge smile with anyone and could easily strike up a conversation with strangers.
In his younger years, Allan enjoyed hunting, fishing, and the fun (and sometimes crazy) adventures in the neighborhood. Allan had worked at Yunk Mfg. and Norlen, followed by Northern Valley Workshop/Industries, and, most recently, Quality Foods/Trigs, retiring in the fall of 2019.
Allan is survived by his mother Florence, Weston, sisters Diane (Doug) Abitz, Rib Mountain, Kathy (Dean) Abitz, Weston, and brothers Randy (Donna) Wesenick, Mosinee, and Scott Wesenick, New London. Nieces and nephews Melissa (Andy) Bohr, Jason (Janet) Abitz, Jessica (Chris) Goebel, Michael (Jessica) Abitz, Gina (Mike) Cody, Jeni (Kevin) Nelson and Justin (Julie) Wesenick. Great nieces and nephews Nick and Nathan Bohr, Sidney and Jack Goebel, Ella, Lillian, and Alaina Cody, Evan and Emma Wesenick, and Zoe and Jack Nelson. Aunts and Uncles Lorraine Dallman, Jean Marten, Joan, and Gary Radtke, Bernie (Gladys) Wesenick, Sylvia Herzog, Margie Hollman, Evie (Bob) Kurth, Diane Wesenick, Shirley (Lyle) Krueger, and many friends.
