Dale T. Muth, age 67, currently of Sayner, WI, passed away May 23, 2021. Dale was born in Milwaukee, WI, to Richard and Dolores Muth. The Muth family moved to Minocqua, WI, in 1969. A member of the LUHS Class of 1972, Dale went on to graduate from UW-Madison. He and his wife, Nancy (Dick), met in high school and were married in 1976. They moved to Colorado in 1978 where they lived for 35 years, pursued their careers, enjoyed the Colorado outdoors, and raised their two children, Michelle LeAnn Muth and Mark Thomas Muth.
Dale loved hunting, fishing, camping, golfing, skiing, boating, and exploring the Colorado back-country with his family, friends and the family Labrador at his side. He cheered on the Badgers, Packers, Broncos, etc. His favorite book, The Lord of the Rings, was read and watched over and over. He enjoyed watching old westerns, the History Channel, fishing & hunting shows, James Bond and John Wayne movies.
A mid-life diagnosis of multiple sclerosis eventually made it too difficult to enjoy those outdoor adventures. He retired in 2005 from a successful career as corporate Executive VP of Human Resources. Dale and Nancy returned to the Lakeland area a few years ago to enjoy time on the water fishing and cruising the lakes.
With strong determination and perseverance, Dale pushed himself to live to the fullest with M.S. for many years, but there was no beating a recent cancer diagnosis. He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Nancy; his children, Michelle and Mark; siblings Gary Muth and partner Anna (Blindauer), Mark Muth and wife Becky, Mary and husband Mike Sievert, Cheryl and husband Scott Mesick; his uncle Jerry Muth and wife Donna; brothers/sisters-in-law Dianne and husband Peter Blazkowski, Sue and husband Doug Thompson; and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and many dear friends.
A celebration of his life gathering family and friends is planned for Sunday, June 6th at Nimsgern Funeral Home Chapel in Woodruff, WI with a Memorial Gathering from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm with a time of sharing at 2:30 pm.
In lieu of flowers, enjoy a fish fry with your family & friends. Or, next time you are out on a lake drop a fishing bobber on the water and think of him sitting in his Lund catching a big one.
