Henry "Hank" S. Dentz, Sr. - Saturday - June 19, 1999 - p. A2
This obit was donated

Henry Dentz, Sr., died June 18, 1999 at Rocky Knoll Health Care Facility following a bout of pneumonia. He was 78 years old.

Though he resided most of his life in Sheboygan, he spent the last 26 years living at Elkhart Lake. In October of 1944 he married Patricia Wingrove. She passed away April 6, 1998.

His grandchildren remember him by his skill in carpentry, annual height measurements on the door frame and his sneaking them cookies when Grandma Patty wasn't looking.

Those that knew Hank, know that he suffered greatly from anxiety and depression. His family has had to rework their relationship with their father and grandfather in the last years.

We needed to erase our selfish expectations and fill that void with the reality of learning to deal with a family member suffering from depression. We had to come to terms with a limited, narrow window in which we could view our father and grandfather, if we chose to have glimpses of him.

The best we could do was to try and provide an environment that would bring him a sense of security that he seemed to be seeking.

At times we were angry that the response we sought was not what we needed. In retrospect we now understand that centering on his limitations kept us from appreciating what we could have had.

When he couldn't laugh, we should have been content with a smile. When he didn't speak, we should have recognized the love in his eyes.

We are now grasping with this epiphany. We will not use this new awareness to chastize outselves now that he is gone. We will use this insight to better ourselves and to connect more closely with the ones we love.

We have mourned the loss of the father and grandfather that we knew before depression took him from us. We can now say that we are able to accept the man our father and grandfather had become. We will miss both, terribly.

He is survived by two sons and one daughter. Eleven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Also one sister.

It was Henry's request that there be no visitation of funeral services. Cremation has taken place.

It is the family's wishes that you consider making a contribution to the Mental Health Association c/o of the Sheboygan United Way. The Wittkopp Funeral Service in Plymouth is serving the family.

G. A. De Wilde, Old Resident Taken In Death

Nationally Known Importer Succumbs to Long Illness


Gustave A. DeWilde, aged 79, and one of the best known of the early Sheboygan settlers and a prominent figure in the business life of the community for 33 years as a wholesale wine and liquor dealer up to 1919 when he retired, died at the family residence at 5:25 o'clock this morning. Mr. DeWilde had been confined to his home since August, 1923, and his recent more severe illness and finally resulted in the approach of death early this morning at the home, 419 Ontario avenue.

A man highly respected in his association in business circles and a staunch friend to all who knew him, he leaves a memory typifying that industry and steadfast character that has contributed to the commercial growth of the community.

Born In Moselle Country

Gustave A. DeWilde was born on the frontier of France and Germany at Zeiting, Germany, July 28, 1844, and came of one of the most distinguished families of that region. He was reared and educated in his native land, emigrating to the United States and coming to Sheboygan in 1866. He had lived all of his life here since then except for a period from 1869 to 1886 when he was a prominent wholesale liquor dealer in Chicago.

His father, Edward DeWilde, was born in Belgium, on the German border, and was descended fro Norman nobility. The court record of the nobility of Germany and France gives the genealogy of the family back to 1679. His father was a wine-grower, a vintner and wine merchant of the "blue Moselle," and his paternal grandfather was a collector of customs between Belgium and Germany, and was descended from a family distinguished in official, literary and scientific circles.

The grandfather and the great-grandfather of Mr. DeWilde held the position of lieutenant-governor of the Island of Sumatra, under the Dutch rule. The great-grandfather was an author of religious works, and a historian of note. His grandfather, Jean Michael DeWilde, was one of the highest and most distinguished Free Masons of Germany and France, of his day. He was a member of the Royal Lodge of Berlin {the "Thru Weldkugeln"} and of the Oriental Consistory of Paris. He had the honor of being the first to receive Gen. Blucher on German soil after his return from the victorious field of Waterloo, and of introducing him to the Masonic lodge of Aix-la-Chapelle.

The family still has the regalia and jewels of his distinguished ancestor. They are rich and rare relics, and of unusual historical value.

Was In Chicago Fire

Mr. DeWilde's father died in 1867, aged 57 years, and his mother, whose maiden name was Catherine Kornreich, survived her husband some ten years. Mr. DeWilde left his home for America against the wishes of his parents and on reaching Sheboygan found employment at various things until 1869, when he

{continued on page 6}

opened a wholesale and retail liquor house at No. 89 Washington street, Chicago, and two years later was burned out in the great fire of October, 1871, whereby he lost all of his property and found himself $10,000 in debt besides. By the aid of good credit he was enabled soon to resume business as a wholesale liquor dealer and importer, which he carried on successfully until 1886, when he returned to Sheboygan and established a wholesale business in this city.

On the 4th of October, 1869, Mr. DeWilde was married in Sheboygan to Miss Anna Lintz. Mrs. DeWilde was born in Sheboygan, and was a daughter of F. G. Lintz. Seven children were born unto Mr. and Mrs. DeWilde, six of whom were born in Chicago, and one, Anna, here. Rosa, the eldest, is the wife of William Meyer, living at their home in Madison; Edward, Frederick, Adolph, Gustav, Felix and Anna are the younger members of the family.

Mr. DeWilde was a Royal Arch Mason, a member of Lessing Lodge So. 557, A.F. and A.M., of Chicago; of Harmony Chapter No. 11, R.A.M.; of Schiller Lodge No. 68, I.O.O.F.; and of Sheboygan Lodge No. 81, K. of P.

He secured his demit from the Chicago lodge to the Sheboygan lodge and later became a Knight Templar in the Masonic Order here.

Large Importer

Mr. DeWilde was the largest importer of wines and liquors in the district, outside of Milwaukee. He made a specialty of Rhine and Moselle wines, and handled also a select assortment of American, especially California, wines. His average stock amounted to about $25,000, which was partly in bonded warehouses in Kentucky and California. Besides his business building, formerly at 420 North Eighth street, he owned a fine residence near the lake on Ontario avenue. Mr. DeWilde was the first of his family to make a settlement in America, and since coming here had been back and forth across the Atlantic nine times.

Besides his wife he is survived by a sister, Mrs. Emma Walzem of Carthage, Illinois, and the seven children who are living at present as follows: Mrs. Wm. Meyer, Madison; Edward, Sheboygan; Fred and Miss Anna, at home; Adolph, Chicago; Gustave, Jr., Chicago, and Felix at Berwyn, Illinois.

Funeral services will be held at 1:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon from the home. The remains will lie in state at 419 Ontario avenue tomorrow afternoon. Rev. Marvin R. Brandt, of the Congregational church will officiate at the funeral service. Member of the Masonic order will conduct the service at the grave at Wildwood cemetery.

Child Found Dead Monday Night

Tragedy struck for the third time in four days at Elkhart Lake when Alice Lee Dallenbach, nine-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Dallenbach, Champaign, Illinois was found dead Monday evening in the Sheboygan Bay cottage in which the family has been vacationing.

Death was laid to fumes from a cleaning fluid for which the victim had a liking. While her parents were attending a piano recital, the girl had apparently left her playmates, soaked a towel in the cleaning fluid and breathed through the towel. She was found lying on a bed in the cottage at 9:45 p. m. when the maid came to put her to bed.

Dr. J. E. Martineau of Elkhart Lake, and the parents of the girl were called immediately, but Dr. Martineau said the girl had been dead for some time.

Coroner Wesley Van Zanten, who was called later, pronounced death due to the fumes from the cleaning fluid.

Kicked By A Horse; Dies Of Injuries

Jacob Dirks, a well-known farmer living in the town of Rhine Center, was the victim of a fatal accident on Monday afternoon. At about 4:30 o’clock Mr. Dirks took a basket of corn leaves into the stable to bed the horses, and while emptying the basket a horse, an otherwise docile animal, must have become frightened, and kicked Mr. Dirks, the horse’s hoof striking him in the face. His wife, who had helped him gather the leaves, was near, and hearing a noise in the barn, rushed in and found her husband lying on the barn floor, his face covered with blood, and scarcely recognizable, and the horse with both front feet in the manger. She immediately summoned help, and Dr. Nauth of Kiel was called. After receiving medical attention the severely injured man was taken to the hospital at Plymouth. A surgical examination showed that his nose and jaw was broken and he had received deep wounds in the back and side of his head. The horse had been recently shod, and this accounted largely for the severity of his injuries. Little hope was held out for his recovery, and at 5 o’clock on Tuesday morning he breathed his last.

Jacob Dirks was born on the homestead farm where he received his fatal injuries, October 13, 1863, thus reaching the age of 59 years and ten days. He was married twice; his first wife died many years ago. He is survived by his second wife, one son and one daughter; also three brothers, Henry of Louis Corners, Peter of Mosel and John of Plymouth. Mr. Dirks was an industrious farmer and well liked by all who knew him, and the news of his sudden and unexpected death was received with regret by his relatives and many friends. The funeral will take place this, Thursday, afternoon, at 1:30 o’clock, from the home, with interment in the St. Peters church cemetery. Rev. Thomas will officiate at the obsequies.

On Sunday Nov. 28, Mr. J. H. Denison, a Sheboygan county pioneer, bade adieu to earth forever. He expired at the home of his son, Attorney F. H. Denison, near Sheboygan Falls, after an illness which lasted about a week. He had been at church the previous Sunday and as usual went unattended. It was while returning from church that he began to feel a weakness coming over him. The attack was such as to arouse grave apprehension. During the days that followed an increasing weakness in his condition was observable, and serious alarm was felt. Despite his extreme old age he had been blessed with vigor and health of body and showed remarkable vitality. The enfeebled condition which resulted from his final illness was in such striking contrast to his usual robust health that his friends felt the gravest fears, and were not wholly unprepared when the summons came.

Although Mr. Denison had passed his ninety-second year, his demise must be considered a loss to the world. A man of his ideals, of his character, of his excellent example could not be anything but a living gospel to his fellowmen. He did not preach righteousness but his life symbolized it. Indeed, he taught honesty, temperance, virtue and true manliness by constantly practicing them. The life of Mr. Denison is a better model for young men than the lives of those who aspire to greatness. Virtue was his aim, and he stood for the things that made for a truer and nobler life.

Mr. Denison was born in Seneca county, New York, June 3, 1817. He came from Puritan stock. He was educated in his native state, receiving a common school education and attended Union College at Schnectady while Dr. Knott was at the head of the institution. Mr. Denison for some time followed the occupation of teaching. He also learned the trade of carpenter and joiner. At the age of twenty-nine his union with Miss Cole took place. She expired a little over seven years ago. Soon after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Denison came to Sheboygan county and possessed themselves of 160 acres of uncultivated land, although for the first six years they resided in the village. After purchasing another eighty acres they removed onto the newly acquired farm, where they lived until their death.

They are survived by these children: Att'y F. H. Denison; James F. Denison, Denver, Colorado; Mrs. Gertrude Bemis, Sheboygan; Mrs. Mary Leavens, Sheboygan Falls.

The funeral was held on November 30, the Rev. F. F. Parsons of the Baptist church of Sheboygan Falls and the Rev. E. E. Dresser of Sheboygan officiating. The interment was in the Sheboygan Falls Cemetery.
