Life Story / Obituary
Dennis Dabalack, 76, of Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, formerly of Racine, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, November 19, 2022. Dennis was born in Pittsburg, Kansas, April 26, 1946, son of the late Albin and Lila (nee Bailey) Dabalack.
Dennis was a proud patriot. After graduating from Southeast High School in Wichita, Kansas, Dennis joined the Air Force serving in the National Guard, active Air Force and Reserves. On January 14, 1967, Dennis married the love of his life Karen Taylor and were married 55 years. Dennis and Karen raised two daughters Kelli (Gary) Durian of West Bend, WI and Amanda (Aleks) Zivkovic of Kohler, WI. They have three wonderful grandchildren, Jake and Carly Durian and Maksim Zivkovic.
Dennis was employed by J. I. Case Company in Sales and Marketing for 38 years. An extremely proud accomplishment for him was returning to college in his late forties and graduating with a BA in Communications from Concordia University. In his spare time, he loved playing golf, spending time with family, doing yard work (Miller Park South), and getting together with friends for game night. In his younger years, he loved camping, fishing, hunting and riding his Harley.
Dennis will be dearly missed by his loving wife Karen, children, grandkids, sister Diane Newcome of Wichita, KS, brother-in-law Kevin (Kandra) Taylor of Wichita, KS, sister-in-law Sharee Snyder of Wichita, KS, nieces, nephews and friends. In addition to his parents and in-laws, John and Dortha Taylor, Dennis was also preceded in death by his brother-in-law, Gary Newcome.
