Obituary for Eugene E. Wild, Jr.

September 21, 1949 - November 23, 2018
Mayville, Wisconsin | Age 69


Eugene E. Wild, Jr., 69 years old, of Mayville, passed away surrounded by his loving family, after a six month battle with liver cancer, on Friday, November 23, 2018 at The Kathy Hospice in West Bend, WI.

There will be no formal funeral services per Gene's wishes.

Eugene E. Wild was born on September 21, 1949 to Eugene M. and Mary Ann (Ries) Wild in Fond du Lac, WI. Gene was a 1968 graduate of Mayville High School. He was united in marriage to Sharon A. (Glamann) Wild on November 28, 1970 in LeRoy, WI. He was employed as a maintenance supervisor at Vintage Parts in Beaver Dam for 32 years.

Gene was a member of the Mayville Gun Club. He loved shooting traditional archery and shooting all the bows he collected over the years. He was a true tinkerer at heart. There wasn't anything he couldn't build, fix, wire or weld. He loved the challenge of making something out of nothing and passed his wealth of knowledge onto his family. He always had the time to stop and talk to people and tell one of his many stories. His family and friends were very important to him. One of his favorite things to do was going bullhead fishing with his grandson Landen. He took a lot of pride in his cabin at Necedah. He built it from the ground up and eventually he gave up his separate hunting room, which became known as "Landen's Cabin".

Gene is survived by his wife Sharon of Mayville; his children Tricia M. Wild and John M. (Kathie) Wild; his brother and sisters Rev. Father Michael Wild of West Bend, Kathie (Ronald) Schraufnagel of Waupun, Christine (Dave) Cargen of Beaver Dam, and his brother-in-law & sister-in-law Dr. John (Sue) Glamann of Lake Wales, FL; his mother-in-law Florence Glamann of Mayville; his grandson Landen J. Wild; his special nephews, nieces, and many friends.

Gene is preceded in death by his parents Eugene & Mary Ann Wild, and his father-in-law Vernon Glamann.

No Services Scheduled.
