Jonathon J. Schwartz

June 10, 1975 — February 13, 2023

Jonathon J. Schwartz “Squirrel”, age 47, of Ringle died on Tuesday, February 13, 2023 in Wausau.


Jon was born on June 10, 1975 in Wausau to Jonathon H. and and the late Cynthia Schwartz.  He was employed at Wausau Manor for 20+ years.  It was here that he would meet Tina Gorham.  The two were married on February 1, 2013 in Wausau. 

 

Jon enjoyed his hobby farm and took pride in his vegetable garden, which he meticulously weeded on his hands and knees.  He taught Tina how to process and can their harvest and was also a wonderful cook.  Jon recently became interested in putting together model cars.  He could often be found at The Corral Bar on 52 where he was on dart and horseshoe leagues.  Many of his friends there became like family and it is in large part because of their encouragement and support that Jon was able to enjoy life again.  His friends and family will remember and miss his constant jokes and pranks.   

 

He is survived by his wife, Tina Schwartz; father John (Jill Williams) Schwartz; children Dustin Kroeplin, Daniel (Amanda) Kroeplin, Samantha Bozeman, Lauren Kroeplin and Noah Schwartz;  his grandchildren Robert, David, Marley, SaMya, Rontreal, Aaliyah “LeLe”, Amelia “MeMe”, Kendall “Fred”, and Conner;  sister Michele Imbach; nephews Riley and Dalton; grandparents Arden and Ethel Schwartz; sisters-in-law Roberta (John) VanAlstine, Melissa (Michelle Belmore) Gorham, Valerie Ninneman and Terri Gorham; aunts and uncles Jerry (Kaye) Schwartz, Shirley, Sally (Jamie)Barron, AJ (Judy) Schubring and Crystal (Robert) LaPean; good friend Scott “Honey Bear” Leitza; and fur babies Roxie and Louie

 

The family would like to thank the Wausau Fire Department and EMTs
