Dennis R. Mich, 75, of Burlington, passed away Friday, Jan. 20, 2023 at Timber Oaks in Union Grove.

Dennis was born in Kenosha on Aug. 2, 1947, to Urban and Mary (nee Daniels) Mich. His early life was spent in Kenosha, where he graduated from St. Joseph’s High School and Kenosha Technical Institute with a degree in automotive tune-ups. On July 9, 1994 at St. Mary Catholic Church in Kenosha, he was united in marriage to Elaine Bernacchi. Following marriage, they made Burlington their home.

Dennis worked for Peter Pirsch and delivered furniture for Schuette-Daniels Furniture. He was a member of St. Mary Immaculate Conception Church and Knights of Columbus. Dennis was a very friendly person, who turned strangers into friends with no effort at all. He was a Chicago Bears fan who liked to cheer for his team while he was with his “Packer Fan” family. He enjoyed genealogy and at one time had a large beer stein collection. He also loved being able to build a cabin up North with his siblings, and he loved spending time there.

Dennis is survived by his wife, Elaine Bernacchi-Mich; siblings, Patricia (Ralph) Zuzinec, Gerald (Margo) Mich, Donald (Susan) Mich, Peter (Frank Nardine) Mich, Paul (Maria) Mich, Robert (Anne) Mich, Richard (Patricia) Mich and Kathleen (Michael) Torine; sister-in-law, Kristine Krier Mich; along with many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and lots of cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Marilyn Ladwig, brother-in-law Mark Ladwig, brother Marvin Krier Mich and an infant brother Joseph Mich.

The family would like to thank those who helped Dennis over the last year and a half.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Love Inc. or American Diabetes Assoc.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, Jan. 27, 2023, at 11 a.m. at St. Mary Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Relatives and friends may visit with the family on Friday, Jan. 27 from 9:30 until 10:30 a.m. at Schuette-Daniels Funeral Home.
