Dana W. Gillis
Dana W. Gillis, 62, of North
Fond du Lac, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, July 20, 2020 at St.
Agnes Hospital. He was born in Menomonee Falls, WI on March 16, 1958, the son
of Gary and Judy (Fowels) Gillis. Dana met the love of his life, Laura (Tilden),
over forty years ago, and they found joy in raising their two children
together. Dana drove professionally for many years and most recently worked for
Waste Management. He loved the outdoors and spent time hunting, fishing, and
boating on Lake Winnebago with his family. In his spare time, he could often be
found working on vehicles or completing other hobby projects in his shop. Dana
will always be remembered for his ingenuity, kindness, and exceptional ability
to make others laugh.
Dana is survived by his loving
wife, Laura; son, Scott (Brenna); daughter, Tiffany; mother, Judy Gillis; three
brothers, Dale (Jana) Gillis, John (Pete) Gillis, Shawn Gillis; two sisters,
Dione (Tom) Moravec, and Emily (Jim) Deaver. He is further survived by his
step-mother, Judy Heckendorf, and many extended family members and close friends.
He was preceded in death by his father, Gary; and sister, Dawn Crandell.
The family is remembering Dana
in a private family gathering, and no services will take place at this time. He
has been cremated per his request.
