    • Dana,
      We were so sad to hear of your passing you were a wonderful grandpa and friend for our baby girl we know she was the light of your life and we will make sure to keep your memory alive in her heart
      Cory and Chelsea Zobel

    • Dana, you were the oldest of my eleven nieces and nephews. You made me an uncle, and it was quite an honor. I have so many memories of babysitting, celebrations, so many trips to the farm. The memories are countless, and keep popping up. I am finding memories that have been tucked away for decades, and they all make me smile. You lived with me for a while, and you were always ready to pitch in and help with anything. I will miss you. We haven’t seen much of one-another the last few years since you moved to Chippewa Falls, but I have enough memories to last a very long time. I miss you.
