Ronald M. Rothenberger Jr.

June 20, 1972 — June 27, 2023


Mr. Ronald M. Rothenberger, age 51, passed away on June 25, 2023. 

Ronnie was born in Wausau, WI to Ronald C. Rothenberger and Johanna (Scragg) Rothenberger. Ron leaves behind family and friends as he starts his final ride: his parents Ron Sr., Johanna; Brothers - Chris, Andrew, and James Rothenberger; Sister - Jeannette Rothenberger, Sister-in-Laws - Nicole (Luedtke) Rothenberger and Sarah (Ausbourne) Rothenberger; Nieces and Nephews - Catlyn Rothenberger, Kyli Dallman, MaKenzie (Rothenberger) Matteson, James U.R. Rothenberger, Cassidy Rothenberger, Joei Rothenberger, Kolton Heldt, Jazmine Penn. 

Ronnie lived life to the fullest. He enjoyed his hunting, fishing and riding - and most of all, his time with family and friends. Riding on his Harley with friends, cutting his hair for friends (Locks of Love), and voicing his opinions as a Union Steward. He was an Ordained Minister of the American Marriage Ministries, being a close part of family and friends on important days. Ron was involved in the community representing the common man. 

Being in his driveway, was an open invitation to stop in and visit with him. Stopping in to shoot the breeze, would have you trying something from his smoker, taking home extras from the garden or trying his newest salsa version. He loved tinkering in the garage - working on his metal art, woodworking or vehicle. No matter how you knew him - Ron, Ronnie, Burrito, Taco, Nonnie, Jr. - you knew the man he was and he will be sorely missed. 

A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, July 13th, at Aftershock Bar & Grill, 1418 Lenard St, Wausau, WI 54401 from 3pm - 8pm.
