Dale J. Kenkel, 65, passed away Sunday, September 15, 2019.

Friends may greet the family from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, September 19, at Egelhof, Siegert & Casper Funeral Home and Crematory, 2659 John F. Kennedy Rd., Dubuque.

Dale was born May 23, 1954 in Dubuque, the son of John “Jack” Dale and Janet Louise (Chunat) Kenkel. He graduated as Salutatorian from West Dubuque High School. During his high school career, he was an excellent athlete, and held many school records. Brilliant in math, Dale went on to attend Loras College, graduating with his BA in Mathematics. He was an avid chess player, earning Master status, and teaching his children the game. Dale loved to compete and play all sorts of games, from card games and cribbage to all kinds of sports. Family was everything to Dale, and his happiest moments were spent playing games during family get-togethers.

Dale is survived by four children, Aaron (Melissa) Kenkel of East Dubuque, IL, Seth Kenkel of Champaign, IL, Kaylyn (fiancé Connor Bloyer) Kenkel of Mount Horeb, WI, and Branden Kenkel of Asbury; three grandchildren, Annabelle Kenkel, John “Jack” Kenkel, and William Kenkel, all of East Dubuque; his mother, Janet Kenkel of Dubuque; two brothers, Douglas (Sherri) Kenkel of Epworth, and David Kenkel of Dubuque; one sister, Dori (Carey) Witt of Volente, TX; his longtime companion, Liz McAvoy of Asbury and her family; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father, John “Jack” Kenkel; and several aunts and uncles who loved Dale very much.

Memorials may be made to the family.
