Mark A. Wilmot
Mark A. Wilmot, age 56, of the Town of Crescent passed away peacefully surrounded by his family and under the care of Ascension at Home Hospice on Thursday, April 9, 2020.
Mark was born on Saturday, May 18, 1963, in Rhinelander, to Richard and Beverly (Richards) Wilmot. He was raised in Rhinelander, attending Rhinelander schools.
At a young age, Mark developed a rare type of bone cancer which was located in his leg and at the age of 16 his leg required amputation. From that moment Mark's life changed but it did not limit him. With a "Can Do Spirit" Mark faced life head on! He was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying fishing, camping, hiking, hunting and snowmobiling. He loved the Packers and traveling. But most of all, Mark loved his family, including his nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and his many close friends.
He will be remembered for never letting his disability hold him back and lived his life on his own terms. He will be dearly missed by his mom, Beverly Molzner (Denny Running), brothers and sisters: Richard (Gayle) Wilmot of Rhinelander, Scott Wilmot of Minnesota, Grant (Terri) Wilmot of Eagleville, Penn., Brenda Dickinson of Clarksville, Tenn., Kelly Wilmot of Rhinelander, Leda (Gary) Vandervest of Rhinelander, Missy Lee of Rhinelander, Brent (Megan) Wilmot of Rhinelander; and stepmother Carla Wilmot of Rhinelander. Also surviving are many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and other relatives and many, many, wonderful friends.
Mark was preceded in death by his father, Richard Wilmot; maternal grandparents, Raymond and Beatrice Richards and by his paternal grandparents, Leonard and Ila Wilmot. At the request of Mark, there will be no visitation or service. A Celebration of Mark's Life will take place at a later date.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the Hildebrand Funeral Home & Cremation Specialists. 24 E. Davenport Street, Rhinelander, 715-365-4343. All are invited to light a candle, sign the guestbook, leave a condolence at www.hildebrandrussfh.com.
