Mark E. Wirtz

Mark Ervin Wirtz, age 69, of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin passed away March 10, 2021 at his home.  He was born on May 20, 1951 in Fond du Lac Wisconsin, and was the son of the late Ervin and Betty (Keyes) Wirtz. He was 1 of 6 children. 

Mark graduated from St. Mary’s Springs Academy in 1969 and furthered his education at the University Wisconsin Oshkosh taking classes in Accounting.

He worked in the family business “Wirtz Decorating” for many years. He then moved on to manage Miller’s Tavern (now Sully’s) and later managed Kinker’s Korners in Van Dyne. Mark also worked at Action Printing for many years and retired from there.

Mark enjoyed family.  Some of his favorite memories growing up were the family road trips they took as well as trips up north to a cottage with family and friends. Mark was a life-longer learner and loved to read. He enjoyed visiting the local library on a weekly basis.  He always found comfort in a good book. Mark was a history buff and had an avid coin collection.   In his most recent interests, he enjoyed keeping up to speed on his great nieces and nephews and all of their extra-curricular activities.
