Memorial for Dennis R. Koneman
Service information has not yet been posted.
Dennis Koneman, 78 of Garfield passed away Sunday 10/18/20 at NW Medical Center. He survived a massive heart attack on 9/22 and was doing very well when he suffered a 2nd one on 10/8. He fought valiantly for 10 days.
Denny was born in Chicago on May 2, 1942 to Alfred Koneman and Georgianna (Stanke) Koneman. He is survived by Sandi, his soul-mate of
39 years. Also his first wife Evelyn, and their children Linda Koneman (Randy Bleier) and Robert Koneman.
He is also survived by 3 half-sisters...Debbie, Georgie and Julie, and one half-brother, Joe Iozzo. And many nieces and nephews.
Denny was a trucker, an avid hunter, fisherman and horseman. He and Sandi became known internationally for their high-quality Black Arabians. They exported 32 to other countries. They even sold 2 to the Sultan of Oman.
Denny was a crack shot and knew everything about guns. And Denny was an excellent card-player. He could play any card game well, but he especially liked "Cut-throat Euchre".
Denny and Sandi especially enjoyed camping with the Jolly Rogers Camping Club. Denny was friendly and out-going. He was quick to offer his help to anyone needing it. He made lots of friends.
Denny loved their 34-acre ranch in Garfield. He kept 9 acres meticulously mowed and weed-whipped. He was so proud when everyone said it looked "like a Golf Course".
Denny wanted to be cremated. He did not want a funeral. But he'd be honored if all of his friends want to get together to share memories of happy times they spent with him.
Plans will be made to do that in the future when large gatherings can take place safely.
