Mark Denfeld, 67, of Wausau, passed away on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
Mark was born April 18, 1952 to Edward and Leona (Levandoski) Denfeld in Wausau. He married Jean Hirn at St. James Catholic Church on September 10, 1977.
Mark was very proud of Denfeld Concrete Construction, Inc., the business he built, along with his brother, which had been started by their father. He was a great friend to many; and his family and friends were the most important thing to him in life. He had a strong passion for oldies music, playing his guitar, loved his Friday fish fries with a good Old Fashioned, was an avid fan of the Wisconsin Badgers, but most of all, loved his wife and daughters with all his heart. He especially loved nothing more than spending time with his grandchildren, whom loved their grandpa so much and meant the world to him.
He is survived by his wife, Jean, Wausau; daughters, Kristen (Adam) Tuttle, Wausau, and Erica (Matt Wilhite) Denfeld, Madison; mother, Leona Denfeld; sister, Mary Beth Denfeld, Chicago; brother, Stuart (Stacey) Denfeld, mother-in-law, Phyllis Hirn; and nephews, Tyler Denfeld, Thomas Denfeld, Travis Schertz, and Tyler Schertz. He is further survived by his grandchildren, Michael, Benjamin, Stella, and William Tuttle. He was preceded in death by his father, Edward Denfeld and father-in-law, Frederick Hirn.
