Dana William Gillis

March 16, 1958 — July 20, 2020

Dana W. Gillis, 62, of North Fond du Lac, went home to be with the Lord on Monday, July 20, 2020 at St. Agnes Hospital. He was born in Menomonee Falls, WI on March 16, 1958, the son of Gary and Judy (Fowels) Gillis. Dana met the love of his life, Laura (Tilden), over forty years ago, and they found joy in raising their two children together. Dana drove professionally for many years and most recently worked for Waste Management. He loved the outdoors and spent time hunting, fishing, and boating on Lake Winnebago with his family. In his spare time, he could often be found working on vehicles or completing other hobby projects in his shop. Dana will always be remembered for his ingenuity, kindness, and exceptional ability to make others laugh.

Dana is survived by his loving wife, Laura; son, Scott (Brenna); daughter, Tiffany; mother, Judy Gillis; three brothers, Dale (Jana) Gillis, John (Pete) Gillis, Shawn Gillis; two sisters, Dione (Tom) Moravec, and Emily (Jim) Deaver. He is further survived by his step-mother, Judy Heckendorf, and many extended family members and close friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Gary; and sister, Dawn Crandell.

The family is remembering Dana in a private family gathering, and no services will take place at this time. He has been cremated per his request.
