Jack B. Schubert, age 64, passed away unexpectedly at his home on October 13, 2015. He was born on May 17, 1951 to the late Lorenz and Laura (Stange) Schubert in Merrill, WI. Jack attended and graduated from the Merrill High School. He eventually met Sharon Schroeder and she became the love of his life. The two of them were united in marriage on June 9, 1973 in Merrill, WI.
Jack and Sharon ran a family-owned dairy farm in Merrill for many years. After retiring from farming, Jack worked in the shipping and receiving department at Reindl Printing. Most recently, Jack was employed at Fleet Farm in Antigo, helping out in all of the departments. He had recently retired from Fleet Farm and enjoyed the last two years of that retirement. Jack had a love for the outdoors, and was an avid hunter. He would hunt anything and everything, and taught his boys the skill of hunting. Jack took pride in manicuring his lawn, and enjoyed his many types of flowers and growing vegetables out of his garden. He would spend time being out in nature, and loved watching his birds, especially the cardinals. Jack and his family would enjoy camping at the Fox Fire Campground in Woodruff, WI, where fun was had by all! They would also take the occasional trip to the casino. Jack and his family were very involved in 4-H, even becoming leaders at one time or another. Family was very important to Jack, he would enjoy spending time with them at every chance he had. He will be sadly missed.
