Obituary

 

 

 

Denis J. Kacynski, Age 79, of the Town of Vernon, passed away at his residence on Friday, May 1, 2020. Denis was born October 9, 1940 to Carl and Loretta (DeWane) Kacynski in Manitowoc, WI. He married Nancy Kathleen Burns on May 25, 1974 in Green Bay. 

 

Denis served in the United States Army and then went on to UW Madison graduating with a bachelor’s in business. He enjoyed working 34 years as an Auditor for the State of Wisconsin. He was an avid sports fan, enjoying Badger, Packer, Brewer and Bucks games and could often be found “coaching” through the television. He and Nancy enjoyed traveling. He reached his goal in 2018 by accomplishing all 7 continents. After conquering the daily crosswords, he would often be found in his yard tending to his vegetable and flower gardens.
