Tremelling, Maynard A. (6 September 1943 - 16 December 2021) With Flag

Maynard A. Tremelling of Spencer, age 78, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, December 16, 2021, in the Emergency Department at Marshfield Medical Center.

Maynard was born on September 6, 1943, in Neillsville; the son of Albert and Beulah (Uran) Tremelling. He attended Manville Elementary School and graduated from Spencer High School. That he accumulated many as a baseball pitcher accumulates. He was enlisted in the United States Army in 1965 stationed in Germany until his honorable discharge as a Sergeant E5 in 1967. On August 10, 1968, he was united in marriage to Sandra Rapp in Marshfield. He was employed at ArtCraft and Trail Blazer Modular Homes in Spencer. Maynard hauled milk for the former Edelweis Cheese Factory, owned and operated a dairy farm for 16 years in the Town of Spencer and lastly owned and operated The Whitetail Inn, a tavern in the Town of Spencer for 10 years.

He was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Marshfield, the Spencer American Legion Post 298 serving as both Commander and Adjutant, Chairman for the Town of Spencer for over 30 years, a post Marathon County Board member, a member of the Marshfield Elks Lodge 665, past president of the ARC Club, past member of Marshfield MACCI and past president of The Spencer Sportsman Club.

In his spare time, he enjoyed going camping at Lake Holcombe, spending time at his cabin, deer hunting and fishing, cheering on the Packers, Badgers and Brewers, attending his grandkids sporting events and maybe on Sunday going for a drive just to see if he could get his name on a drawing or two hoping he wins. Maynard loved his softball whether it was slow pitch, fast pitch or hardball, it didn’t matter, he loved playing all of it.

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Sandra of Spencer; his son, Kevin (Kathy) Tremelling of Marshfield; his daughter, Kari (Scott) Kloos of Roosevelt and his grandchildren, Kendra and Kyle Tremelling and Macy and Deliny Kloos. He is further survived by his siblings, Shelby Weister, Bruce (Darlene) Tremelling, Norman (Marlys) Tremelling and Beverly (John) Krohn, all of Marshfield; his nieces and nephews, Renee (Tom) Wagner of Marshfield, Sara (Kacey Dewitt) Hauck of Marshfield, John (Cheryl) Weister of Oconto Falls, Rhonda (Galen) Wiersig of Marshfield, Heidi (Kurt) Burnstad of Oshkosh, Brian Tremelling of Hudson, Christine Jensen of Spencer, Michelle (Nate) of Spencer, Russell Tremelling of Spencer, Jenny Dennee of Stratford and Wendy (Brad) Lemanar along with many other relatives, friends and neighbors. Maynard was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.

His memorial service will be held at 11 A.M. on Thursday, December 23, 2021, at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Marshfield with Pastor Mark Wilkens officiating. Following the service, Military Honors will be conducted by Maynard’s comrades from the Spencer American Legion Post 298.
