Gerard J. Staab, 68, died peacefully at his home in Marshfield, WI on September 29, 2021.
Gerard (Gary) was born August 25, 1953 at St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield, WI to Edward and Lillian (Bach) Staab of Dorchester, WI. He graduated from Colby High School in 1972 and got a degree in Diesel Mechanics from Mid-State Technical College in Wisconsin Rapids. In 1975, he was married and bought his parents' farm on Highway A in Dorchester. He was a very proud, hardworking and successful farmer, being one of the first farmers to milk cows 3 times a day. Gerard was quite the character and a daredevil and in his early 20's, suffered from a couple serious motorcycle accidents that contributed to a change in his quality of life. After his divorce, he worked at his cousin's Bach Farm, loved working on tractors and had a passion for participating in tractor pulls. He was creative and inventive.
He is survived by his daughter, Kimberly J. (Staab) Foemmel of Framingham, MA and his son Jesse J. Staab, his wife Shaunna Rogers of Pittsville, WI and children Darrell, Deandre, Selene, Tekoah, Jeshua, Jasper and Genesis.
He is further survived by brothers: Kenneth Staab, Aaron (Donna) Staab, Gregory (Sandra) Staab of Marshfield, Jeffrey (Renee) Staab of Colby and sisters: Phyllis (Gerald) Werner, Joyce (Fred) Fisher, Rosemary (Fred) Lewin, Patrice Staab of Marshfield, Diane (Thomas) Poehnelt of Milwaukee and aunts Fern (Harold) Laube and Rosemary Hohl.
