Jack A. Schenk, age 63, of Wisconsin Rapids, WI died Saturday, December 24, 2016 in Port Richey, FL.

Memorial Services are 11:00 AM Saturday, April 29, 2017 at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church Wisconsin Rapids, WI. Father Patric will officiate. The family will greet relatives and friends at the church on Saturday from 9:30-11:00 AM. Ritchay Funeral Home in Wisconsin Rapids, WI is assisting the family.

Jack was born January 19, 1953 in Wisconsin Rapids, WI to Jack and Marjory (Kempen) Schenk. He married Lisa Ruder on January 18, 1974 in Wisconsin Rapids, WI. Jack was a millwright in the maintenance department of Erco Worldwide for 36 years retiring in 2015.

Jack's passion was pickle ball, so much so, that a tournament in Hudson, FL has been named in his honor. He loved the Green Bay Packers and UWSP Men's Basketball and also enjoyed several other hobbies. Jack had many pets in his lifetime and was especially fond of his big orange cat, Rusty.

Jack is survived by his wife, Lisa; son, Chad (fiancé- Tammy Hanson) Schenk of New Orleans, LA; mother, Marjory Schenk of Wisconsin Rapids, WI; and ten brothers and sisters, Charlie (Julie) Schenk of Wisconsin Rapids, WI, Dean (Mary) Schenk of Chattanooga, TN, Scott (Kim) Schenk of Wisconsin Rapids, WI, Marcia Vavrek of Winthorp Harbor, IL, Debra Schenk of Milwaukee, WI, Sandy (Randy) Hartjes of Wisconsin Rapids, WI, Bobbi (Gary) Janz of Wisconsin Rapids, WI, Krista (Jeff) Van Asten of Kimberly, WI, Jane (Peter) Wagner-Scheel of Marshfield, WI and Dawn (Steve) Schenk Miller of Rochester, MN. Jack is also survived by many nieces and nephews.

Jack was preceded in death by his father, Jack; sister, Susan; father and mother-in-law, Clarence and Jean Ruder and two nephews.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be designated to the South Wood County Humane Society.
