Gunars Intaitis

January 2, 1966 — February 16, 2024

Gunars Intaitis, age 58, passed away unexpectedly at home on February 16, 2024.

Gunars was born in Riga, Latvia on January 2, 1966 to Ludwig and Leva Intaitis.

He was a master of many things! He was an avid gardener/landscaper. He enjoyed spending time outdoors and mostly in the back yard with Sheryl around the fire and his family no matter the season!

He was also a very good carpenter and builder. He used his talents to build log homes from scratch, repair old log homes and in his free time, he remodeled homes as well.

At the age of 24, he came to the United States on a work visa to learn how to make American log homes as he was already a log home builder in Latvia. He was employed by Frontier Builders of Land o' Lakes, WI and sponsored by Jerry Wait and his family for 18 months. Upon completion of training, he returned to Latvia for a time. At the age of 33 he applied for the Permanent Green Card lottery and his name was picked to return back to the US. He then went back to work for Frontier Builders. The next year he met Sheryl and they began their lives together. In the years that followed they built their own log home restoration business in Land o' Lakes where they made 100 year old log cabins look new again.

When their grand daughter Miley was born in 2011, Gunars and Sheryl relocated to Seymour, WI to be closer to the family. Together they remodeled a home from the 1890's and created a beautiful back yard for their grand daughter to play in. On Saturday mornings he and Miley would have breakfast, play board games and spend time together.

Shortly after moving to Seymour he began working for Seymour Dairy/Emmi Roth where he learned many areas of the cheese production business. He made many new friends and became a cheese connoisseur. He had a love for cheeses, wine and a good cigar!

He will sadly be missed by many.

He is survived by Sheryl Anthony, significant other, Heather (Aaron and Miley) Steffen, daughter; Leonard (Roxie) Meyer, son; Aivars Intaitis, brother; Guna Intaite, neice and many other close family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ludwig and Leva Intaitis.

According to his wishes no service will take place at this time. There will be a celebration of life this summer for him.
