Emerson Leo Weingart and Gina Lynn (nee Gennara) Weingart were tragically taken from us on Feb. 1, 2024. They were joined in marriage on June 23, 2023, and went to their eternal home together.
Emerson Leo Weingart, 33, was born in Menomonie Falls. Having lived with his family in a number of places, he spent the most time in Burlington. He grew up with God in his life, attended St. John’s Grade School, graduated from Shoreland Lutheran High School and was also a graduate of UW LaCrosse.
Emerson was employed by Kroger as the Meat Department Manager at Metro Market in Mukwonago. He enjoyed his work as well as many friends and associates, having worked at a number of stores.
Emerson was an avid sportsman and learned to fish practically as soon as he could walk. Fishing was his passion, and his wife Gina was his sidekick on many adventures, learning all his tricks. He was a sports enthusiast, loving all the Wisconsin teams, especially the Packers. He and Gina enjoyed spending time with their family and friends fishing, hunting, playing board games and watching sports.
Emerson is survived by his parents, Jeff and Christi; grandparents, Richard and Marjorie Etienne; younger brothers, Berek (Leah) and Leland; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
