Gary Mark Le­Moine, 63, passed away peacefully at his home in the town of Pine Lake, Wis., on Aug. 26, 2019. 

Gary was born on May 30, 1956, in Madison, Wis., to Ken and Patsy Ruth (Schoenmann) LeMoine.

He grew up in Marshfield, Wis., and spent much of his youth working in the family shoe store. Gary graduated from Marshfield Senior High in 1975.

He did some electrical work, sold office machines, and then worked his way up the ladder at Modern of Marshfield (Marshfield Furniture) where he inevitably became production manager.

On Aug. 7, 1982, Gary married Robin Schulz, and together they enjoyed 37 years of marriage and had two beautiful daughters.

During the summer of 1996, the LeMoines moved to Three Lakes, Wis., where Gary began taking classes in real estate. He worked initially for Coldwell Banker Mulleady Realtors and later for Re/Max Property Pros. Gary didn’t have the advantage others had of growing up in the Northwoods and knowing a lot of people in the area, but once he worked with customers, they thought he was the greatest guy in the world and referred him to others.

The LeMoines moved to Sugar Camp, Wis., in 1999, and then to their dream home in Pine Lake in 2016, where Gary retired and spent time as “King of the Bay.”

Gary loved his family so much and enjoyed family camping vacations, disc golfing, bike rides, boating and time spent with his precious granddaughter, Bailey. Gary looked forward to many weekends of hunting, fishing, and golfing with his buddies at Camp Rum Dums and an annual week in Canada. He loved his buddies (both from high school and Rum Dums), and they loved GareBear.

He was an avid sports enthusiast enjoying the Packers, Badgers and Brewers. March Madness was his favorite time of year. Gary also played a mean hand of euchre and sheepshead and loved Mexican Train dominoes at big family gatherings.

Gary is lovingly survived by his wife, Robin of Pine Lake; daughters, Elyse of Golden, Colo., and Anna (boyfriend, Chad Lockhart) of Rhinelander, Wis.; granddaughter, Bailey; and mother-in-law, Virginia Schulz of Rhinelander; his brothers, Lee (Barb) of San Diego, Calif., and Kim (Phyllis) of Lake Du Bay, Wis.; brothers-in-law, Mark (Lynette) Schulz of Eau Claire, Wis., and Scott (Pam) Schulz of Parker, Colo.; and sister-in-law, Keva (Lynne) Schulz of Apple Valley, Wis.

Many cherished nieces and nephews further survive Gary, as well as his good buddies from high school and Camp Rum Dums, who were like family to him. 

A celebration of Gary’s life was held on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Rhinelander.

In lieu of flowers, memorials have been established for Every Kid to Camp at Camp Luther and Trinity Lutheran Church in Rhinelander.

Thanks to all for your prayers, love, and support.
