Jeffrey “Ollie” A. Yirkovsky, 53, Mosinee, died Wednesday, Oct 16, 2018, at his home.
He was born Feb. 6, 1965, in Wausau, the son of the late Thomas and Beverley (Abel) Yirkovsky. He married Renee Schmidt on April 14, 2008, in Jamaica. She survives.
Ollie loved life. He was always hunting, fishing or camping when he wasn’t driving truck for Kolbe & Kolbe. He was the hardest worker. He enjoyed watching sports, racing and concerts with friends, and loved to travel with family.
Ollie was a devoted husband and father, even to those kids who weren’t his own. He had a generous heart, he spent his life taking care of his family and always helping others. Words cannot express how much he will be missed.
