Gary A. Cahak

Gary A. Cahak, age 69, of Rhinelander, died April 15, 2019, at his home, with his family at his side.

Gary was born June 12, 1949, in Rhinelander, to Leroy "Lee" and Hazel (Neiber) Cahak.

Gary was a lifelong resident of Rhinelander. He graduated from Rhinelander High School in 1967. After his schooling Gary began working in sales. He sold a number of different items throughout his career and was successful with each of them. Gary had a pleasant demeanor, attention to each detail and a great sense of humor. All of those together made Gary a great salesman. During this time he also operated his own furniture refinishing business on the side.

Gary married Ann Wojcik and together they were blessed with many years together and many common interests. They enjoyed boating, fishing and golfing, and doing so with family and friends. They were also fortunate to travel to destinations in the Caribbean, Alaska and Hawaii. Gary was a longtime member of the Rhinelander Country Club and he enjoyed both the couple's and the men's league each week. Probably the men's league a little more. Gary made the most of his life and truly enjoyed the 15 years of retirement he had. Gary could be a practical joker and family and friends were treated equally when it came to his pranks. He will be missed greatly by his family and friends.
