David T. (Terry) Dahlke of Sheridan, Wyoming passed away on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at his home.
He was 79 years old. He was born in Antigo, Wisconsin on September 12, 1941, a son of John and Doris (Mary Bouchonville) Dahlke.
He was raised in Antigo and attended St. John's Parochial School. In 1954, his family moved to Dubois, Wyoming, later settling in Hanna, Wyoming. Terry graduated Class Salutatorian from Hanna in 1959.
He served in the Army and was stationed in Italy. Following military service, he worked as a logger and owned and operated Dahlke Logging in Sheridan, Wyoming. He retired in 1997.
Terry enjoyed many hobbies. He designed and handcrafted many unique pieces of furniture for his use and as gifts to family members. He was an avid reader, always scouring the public library for interesting books. His two mile morning walks for the daily paper kept him fit. He also enjoyed an evening nightcap and playing Pinochle with his family on holidays and gatherings. He enjoyed fishing if they were biting, golfing, gardening, crossword puzzles, gave oil painting a go and was an experimental cook. Terry often attended Joe's live Rock Band performances with great pride, even with hearing aids.
What Terry truly loved was family. Retiring at an early age afforded Terry precious years to spend more time with his son Joe and keeping in touch with his family.
He is survived by his son, Joseph (Angel) Dahlke of Sheridan, WY. Two sisters: Judy Barnsdale of Plover and Mary (Steven) Groeschel of Stevens Point. Three brothers: Thomas (Jeanne) Dahlke of Antigo, Jeffery Dahlke of Antigo and Douglas (Debbie) Dahlke of Weston, WI.
He is further survived by many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and a sister, Kimberly Dahlke.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday June 22, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. at the Bradley Funeral Home. Burial will follow in Elmwood Cemetery.
Visitation will be from 12:30 p.m. until the time of services at the funeral home.
