Mark A. Wanninger
March 7, 1962- February 16, 2021

Mark A. Wanninger, age 58, formerly from West Bend, passed away unexpectedly at his home in Merton, WI on February 16, 2021.

Mark was born March 7, 1962 in Milwaukee to George and Deborah (nee Gravenstine) Wanninger. He grew up in West Bend, and graduated from West Bend East High School, Class of 1980. He then went on to graduate from UW Whitewater in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science degree. His career included work as a paralegal and private investigation before starting his own legal process service business.

Mark enjoyed spending time with his son, riding his motorcycle, hunting and spending time in Tipler, WI with his family. He was a kind and gentle soul, always willing to give advice or lend a hand however he could. In 2012, Mark was proud to be a bone marrow donor that found a match with a young girl in Florida, which helped to save her life.

Mark is survived by his son, Mitchell; his siblings, Mike (Denise) Wanninger, Linda (Jim) Nehls, and John (Lori) Wanninger. Mark was a proud Uncle and is also survived by his niece and nephews; Steven (Melissa) Nehls, Mike Jr. (Lori) Wanninger, Karly (Taylor) Frampton, and Robert Wanninger. He is further survived by other relatives, loving cousins, and many life-long friends.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, and his parents George and Debbie.

A private family service has been held, and a future Celebration of Life will be scheduled at a future date.

Our family would like to extend a special thank you to Lisa Kraft for all her assistance during this difficult time.

Mark was a joy to work with at Meissner Tierney Fisher & Nichols and, I considered him a friend. I will miss him and his ever cheerful personality.

We are so sorry for your loss. Way too soon. I remember many good times in Tipler with Mark and Jeff R. One hunting season, when we were younger I had shot a 6 point buck in the morning and then went back to the trailer for lunch. Before the afternoon hunt, Mark asked me to touch his weapon-for luck. Believe it or not he came back later with a 7 point buck. Mark, John, Jeff, Jim and I also did alot of snowmobiling, too. One time Mark and I took a trip to Eagle River and got back late, only to find that his parents trailer was cold. The LP had run out. We went to my trailer and started the fireplace and slept there that night. There was always lots of laughs and good times. Ed and Mary Beth

We are so very sorry to hear that Mark passed. Larry and I were just remembering that every time we got Mark to babysit for Chris and Bud he brought along a bag of Skittles, until he realized the more sugar Bud ate the wilder and out of control he became. LOL

RIP my friend. Mark stood up in my wedding. Mark, myself and Al Hanson were three amigos from the same subdivision and hung together like brothers. That group also included Mark's brother Mike, Jeff Reuwsatt and Jimmy and Ed Boyung. Mark, Al and I all from the same grade (graduated 1980) we had a jean jacket 'club', Al and Mark wore Camaro patches on the back and I wore a Corvette patch 🙂 Many great days and nights spent with this crowd growing up. Fishing at the dam or out past the airport runway, cruising in the chevelle or in Al's mustang....Jeff letting us drive before we got our licenses on deer hunting trips up north...spending whole summer days water skiing on Little Cedar at Wanninger's grandparents pier....good times were had by all...... Mark stayed in Wisconsin while I moved to Ohio and Al ended up moving to North Carolina but none of us will forget our good times in West Bend. My sincere condolences to the Wanninger family during this difficult time.
