age 70, of Pembine, WI died peacefully Wednesday, August 16, 2023 surrounded by all the love from his wife, children, family, and friends, after a short battle with cancer. Dennis was born on September 3, 1952 in Manitowoc, WI to the late Clarence and Adelaide (Steder) Klein. He grew up in the Two Rivers, Manitowoc area and attended Manitowoc schools before taking a job and moving to Texas. Upon his return to Manitowoc, Dennis started a family and new career at Kelvinator. He worked there for several years before obtaining his cdl for a driving career with Buffalo Don’s until he retired and moved to his piece of heaven on earth in the north woods. He married the love of his life, Nancy (Posvic) Klein on June 16, 2000 and shared the rest of his life honoring and cherishing that union. Dennis had a passion for life and enjoyed every minute of it. Those passions included hunting, fishing and shooting pool. He also took great pride in his children and grandchildren. He was always there lending his hand and electrical knowledge to any family, friend, or neighbor who needed it. He found joy in sitting in the garage listening to music and visiting with family and friends. Dennis also would make so many friends while visiting many of the local establishments. Something dear to his heart was his monthly lunch gatherings with the Cocoon Club.
