Beloved father, son, and brother John Wesley Wilcott, Born April 14, 1962, passed away unexpectedly on December 25, 2021. His comforting memory (and truly awful puns) will be carried on by parents Wesley and June Wilcott; daughters Stephanie (CJ) Noggle and Mindy (Cody) Lee; and siblings Donald Wilcott, Patti Maher, and Debbi (Dan) Bree. He is reunited with his brothers Gary and Tommy Wilcott and grandparents John and Anna Lang and Martin and Anne Wilcott.
John will be remembered as someone who always showed up when it mattered most. He was an avid bowler, chef, pool-shooter, and hurler who always had a witty remark or irreverent joke to lighten up a room. He was a loving son, a devoted father, and a trustworthy friend and will be dearly missed by those fortunate enough to have crossed his path.
A celebration of life will take place Saturday, May 7, 2022 at 11 am at Brainard Funeral Home – Wausau Chapel, 522 Adams Street, Wausau, with a visitation beginning at 10 am.
