Wayne Leavitt, age 79, of the Town of Stella, died on September 24, 2014, in Tomahawk, WI. He was born on July 7, 1935 in Wild Rose, WI to Miles and Norma(Keenlance)Leavitt. His family moved to the Starks area when Wayne was a child. He then attended schools here graduating from the Rhinelander High School in 1953. He married Jeannine Fish on September 15, 1956 in Rhinelander. During his youth and after his schooling he had worked on the family potato farm. After his family stopped farming Wayne went to work for the Rhinelander Paper Company and was there for many years, retiring in 1997. In his free time Wayne enjoyed gardening, camping with his family and keeping his lawn and home in good shape. His real love was deer hunting and anything to do with deer hunting, both bow and gun. He enjoyed a simple life and would tell you that. Beyond all else, his girls and their well being came first in all he did. Wayne is survived by his wife Jeannine of Rhinelander, his three daughters Kim Hall(Mike), Debora Leavitt and Robin Recha(Jeff) all of Rhinelander, two grandchildren Matthew(Lisa)Fish and Melynda Coleman, great grandchildren Eric and Ean, his sister Nola Fish and his brother Dale Leavitt both of Rhinelander, nieces, nephews, other family and many friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister Joan. A memorial service for Wayne will be held on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at 11:00 AM at the Carlson Funeral Home.
