Gebert, Wayne H. (11 OCT 1939 - 30 MAR 2019)

Wayne H. Gebert, 79, of Medford, passed away on Saturday March 30, 2019 at the Colonial Center in Colby.

Wayne was born on October 11, 1939 to Frank and Beatrice (McCarthy) Gebert in Medford. He spent his young adult life doing masonry and carpenter work in Milwaukee. He moved back to Medford and spent most of his adult life as a self-employed veal farmer.

Wayne enjoyed many things, especially fishing, camping, playing horseshoes and pool, and spending time in his shop doing wood crafts. More than that he loved his children and grandchildren and was proud of all of their accomplishments.

Wayne is survived by three children, Steve Gebert, Nick (Heidi Nernberger) Gebert, and Katie (Drew) Smola, all of Medford; five grandchildren, Steven Gebert Jr., Hailee (Leslie) Leu, Lincoln Smola, Ali and Brynlee Gebert; four brothers, Lynn (Carol) Gebert of Oconto, Frank Gebert of Minnesota, Gary (Lenore) Gebert of Abbotsford, and Lyle (Regina) Gebert of Indiana; sister, Karen (Kenton) Marti, of Watertown. Wayne is further survived by many other family and friends.

In addition to his parents, Wayne is preceded in death by son, Patrick, infant daughter, Trudilyn, two brothers, Elliot (Donna) Gebert and Lee Gebert; sister, Henrietta Wildman.

Wayne’s family is very thankful for the care he received at Colonial Center.
