Obituary: Daniel H. Denor

Daniel H. Denor, age 73, of Brillion, passed away peacefully on Friday, May 3, 2024 at Brillion West Haven. 

Dan was born on March 11, 1951 in Green Bay, son of the late Herbert & Rosella (Draheim) Denor.  He was a graduate of Brillion High School, class of 1969.  He furthered his education at Fox Valley Technical College, receiving a degree as a Diesel Mechanic.  On November 11, 1972, he married his high school sweetheart Ruth Nohr at Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church in Brillion.  Dan was employed for 42 years at Accurate Alignment.  He started as a diesel mechanic and held several roles over the years and was working as Service Manager in the Heavy Duty Truck Department until his retirement.   He and Ruth also owned and operated Classic Cuts Salon in Reedsville for many years where he did all of the bookkeeping and maintenance.  Dan enjoyed being outdoors hunting and fishing.  He specifically fished for walleye on Lake Winnebago and pan fish on all of the nearby lakes.  Many camping trips were taken with Ruth and the kids where they would swim, fish, and just be together outdoors.  Dan was a member of the Brillion Conservation Club where he served as Club President for a time and participated in archery and trap shooting leagues.  Faith was very important to Dan, and he was very involved at Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church, serving on the Church Council and Leadership Team.  Dan and Ruth were both “big softies” when it came to animals, loving and caring for many dogs over the years.  Dan often spoke about his love for his wife Ruth, and about his love for his children and grandchildren.  He and Ruth took many road trips, attended sporting events, and he truly loved spending time with his family.

Dan is survived by his wife of 51 years, Ruth of Brillion: their children and spouses: Kelly (Scott) Quinn of Neenah and Matt (Jody) Denor of Brillion; their grandchildren: Noah, Caleb, Alexi, Natasha, and Ava; great granddaughter Emberlyn; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law: Edward (Mary) Nohr of Sun Prairie and Norma (Bill) Drumm of Brillion; a niece, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; an infant brother: David; father-in-law and mother-in-law: Willard & Clara (Jahnke) Nohr; and sister-in-law and brother-in-law: Betty (Ron) Daul. 

Funeral Service will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, May 10, 2024 at Trinity Ev. Lutheran Church in Brillion.  Officiating at the service will be Rev. Ross Henzi and Rev. Thomas Fricke.  Burial will be in the church cemetery.
