Dennis Michael

Age 73, passed away peacefully at home, with his family by his side on Wed., March 15, 2017. Special husband of Jean for 51 years. Preceded in death by his parents, Daniel and Catherine Havey and brother, Patrick Havey. Survived by his wife, Jean, sister, Kathleen Paul, brother, Timothy Havey, and children, Daniel (Jenny) Havey, Laurie (Peter) Gabik and Michael (Andrea) Havey. Loving grandfather of 8 boys, Kevin and Joseph Havey, Nicholas and Jacob Gabik, Nathan Havey, Nong Boy Narangrithi, Travis Prueprak and Kade Kimberlin. Also survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

He had a very loving, close, extended family. Dennis was a kind, warm-hearted, funny, gentle man. He loved his guitar, Irish music, the woods, wildflowers, fishing and trains. He loved to read and he loved to learn, and he knew something about everything. He was a proud Teamster. He volunteered and gave much of his time back to his community. Dennis made the world a nicer, better place and will be greatly missed.

I’ll never forget 50+ years ago back at UWSP when Denny was “tutoring” me in a room at the Newman Center for a next day chemistry test. I know he found me a real challenge! If it was for his help I would have bombed it, but I ended up getting a B+. I’ll allows remember his Irish looks/smile/humor.

Beannachtai Dennis!
