Shane Joseph Windorski, 32, of Rothschild, died on Wednesday, June 26, 2019.
He was born in Wausau on January 26, 1987 to Joseph and Charlotte Windorski. After completing high school, Shane went on to get his certificates in Culinary Arts, Human Services; as well as Safety and Sanitation.
Shane was a loving and free spirit. He loved going to music festivals with his “Festi Family.” He loved being a Hibachi Chef and took great pride in his skills. He was intelligent and had a big heart. Most important to Shane were his family and friends. A night never went by where he didn’t tell his mom and dad good night and his entire family that he loved them. The world is a little bit darker without the light that Shane brought into it. He will forever be missed by every life that he has touched.
Shane is survived by his parents, Joe and Char Windorski; his brother, Jason; Sister, Tracy (Matt) Franson; nieces and nephews, Austin, Kyler (Talin), Taylor, Zach, Sadie and Calen; Great-nieces and nephews, Waylon, Maverick, McKinnley, and Emma; aunts and uncles, Patricia (George) Desnoyer, Mike Windorski, Karen (Kurt) Klein, Sue (Wayne) Pakonen, Gary (Teri) Windorski, John (Rochelle) Windorski, Bob (Jill) Windorski, Geri (Mark) Gore, Fred (Marilyn) Steinagel, Whitey (Pam) Steinagel and Mike (Joan Steinagel. He is further survived by his “Festi Family,” who were truly his family at heart.
