Dale J. Winkler

June 15, 1943 ~ November 14, 2017 (age 74)

Dale J Winkler, age 74, of Neenah passed away at University Hospital, Madison, WI on November 14, with family and dear friends by his side.  Dale was born on June 15, 1943 in Neenah, a graduate of NHS and married his soul mate and best friend, Mary (Ellen Nickasch) on October 22, 1988 at First Presbyterian Church, Neenah (FPCN), where Dale was a Deacon and Usher.  Dale loved anything to do with the outdoors-planting trees, splitting wood, gardening, maintaining the driveway and having his two golden retrievers, Stanley & Steemer by his side.

Dale will be deeply missed by his loving wife, Mary and their daughter, Stephanie (Schuelke). Grandpa will be missed by Nicole, (John) Surges, Brittney, (Alan) German, and Erica Schuelke. Grandpa Dale will be missed dearly by his great-granddaughter Avery Surges. He is further survived by his brothers, Robert (Patty), Glenn, and John, his sister-in-law Joanne Winkler and brother-in-law Gary Bezucha. He is further survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Dale was preceded in death by his parents,  his brother Thomas and his sister Janet (Bezucha).

To respect Dale's wishes, there will be a private memorial service with Associate Pastor Paul W. Huxtable officiating.  There will be a celebration of Dale's life at Noon on Saturday, December 16, 2017, in the Fellowship Hall at First Presbyterian Church, 200 Church Street, Neenah. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to FPCN, Neenah Animal Shelter or Salvation Army.

We are grateful for all the prayers and support that everyone extended during Dale's tough battle.

2Timothy 4:7-”I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”
