Ron Zahrt passed away unexpectedly on the evening of October 7, 2021 at his home in Wausau.
Ron was a devout Christian and proud and life–long Wausau resident. He was born on June 27, 1945 to George and Mary Zahrt. He was happiest when fishing with Mike, watching baseball, exploring new places with Lois, and seeing his kids and grandkids do all the activities that they love. He spent most of his career in Wausau real estate helping his customers find their perfect home and helping colleagues reach their full potential. He enjoyed representing and advocating for the Wausau area on state and regional real estate boards. After a bout with cancer over 20 years ago he became an advocate for cancer screening and in retirement spent time each week volunteering at the Aspirus Cancer Center.
Ron is survived by Lois, his wife of 50 years; children, Mike Zahrt, Linda (Cavin) Thiery, grandchildren Zac and Julia Thiery, and sister Nancy Zahrt.
