Alfred J. "Al" Marx

On July 3, 2018, Alfred "Al" Marx, 80 years young, went home to be with his Heavenly Father after a brave brief fight with cancer.

Alfred was born April 13, 1938 on the family farm in Wausau, son of the late John and Margaret (Dellmann) Marx. He attended a one room school house and later graduated from D.C. Everest High School. Al proudly worked on the family farm until he married the love of his life, Barbara (Scheel) on January 16, 1960. He loved the land so much that they bought a farm not far from home where they raised eight wonderful children.

He served his country in the United States Army Reserves during the Cuban Missile Crisis, stationed in Washington State. He worked for 15 years at Marathon Electric and served as a Resolution Representative for AMPI (Associated Milk Producers, Inc.) for many years. He enjoyed going to the Wisconsin Valley Fair to watch his children and grandchildren show their projects. He gave each child their first animal and taught them how to care for it. He served on the Market Animal Show Sale Committee of the fair and cooked for the M.A.S.S. Appreciation Picnic. Some of his favorite things to do were hunting, rafting with his family on the Wolf River, going for walks in the woods with his dog Lucy, making maple syrup in his own woods, going for country car rides enjoying the scenery and stopping for ice cream, and playing Santa Claus for his grandchildren. His greatest joys were his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Alfred is leaving behind his wife of 58 years, Barbara; his children Denise Perkins, Charlotte (Jerome) Kuklinski, Michael (Sharon) Marx, Karen (Rick) Nelson, Michelle (Shawn) Perkins, Douglass (Cindy) Marx, Marciann (Russell) Wiegand; grandchildren, Bryan Perkins, Katie (Devin) Ales, Matthew (Veronica) Kuklinski, Lindsey Kuklinski, Jamie, Jonathon, Andrew, and Alexander Marx, Samantha and Tyler Nelson, Alicia (Dan) Drost, Chevie and Shae Perkins, Jake and Cole Marx, and Ruby Wiegand; great-grandchildren Skylar, Ziah, Scarlet, McKinley, Katherine, Michella, Barrett, Lillian, Landon, Aurora, and Daniel; sisters Elizabeth (Joseph) Nikolaus, Mildred (James) Imhoff, and Esther (Kenneth) Blinkwitz, and many other relatives and friends.

Preceding Alfred in death were his son Gregory Alfred, granddaughter Jennifer Lynn, sisters Emma Zinda and Gertrude Rodemeier and brother Bernard Marx.

The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, July 12, 2018 at the Church of the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ, 621 N Second Street, Wausau. Rev. Msgr. Mark Pierce will preside. Burial with full Military Honors will be in Restlawn Memorial Park, Wausau. Visitation will be on Thursday, July 12, from 9:30 a.m. until the time of services at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to St. Jude's Research Center for Children, in Alfred's name.

The family would like to take this opportunity to extend their sincere appreciation to the staff at Aspirus for taking such good care of Al while he was there and to Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services for the care at his home.
