Dale V. Deterding

Aug 29, 1956 - Jan 11, 2019


Dale V. Deterding, age 62, of Sheboygan, died on Friday, January 11, 2019 at the Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice. He was born in Waterloo, Iowa on August 29, 1956 to the late Victor and Florence (Drape) Deterding.

Dale graduated from Marshall High School in 1974. He then attended UW-Madison and earned a bachelor’s degree in History in 1981 and a master’s degree in Educational Policy in 1983. On May 30, 1981 he married Julie Popp in Caledonia, WI.

As a licensed social worker, Dale worked at Sheboygan County Health & Human Services for 18 years, supervising Adult Protective Services, Caregiving, Senior Nutrition, Elder Benefits, Senior Transportation, and Long-Term Care programs. He previously worked at The Management Group (TMG) in Madison, and as a social worker in Jefferson and Dane Counties.

Dale’s calling in life was to ensure that people of all abilities were treated with dignity and able to live as independently as possible, on their own terms.

Dale was known and appreciated for his eclectic taste in music, passion for all things British, quick wit and irreverent sense of humor.

Survivors include his wife, Julie, of Sheboygan; twin daughters, Rachel Deterding, of Madison, Victoria Deterding, of Sheboygan; brothers and sisters, Dean (Susan) Deterding, of Georgia, Luella (Kort) Guild, Dan (Amy) Deterding and Lisa Deterding, all of Iowa; his step-mother, Edith (Les) Lindermann, of Iowa; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Mark (fiancée Jayne Nelson) Popp, of Minnesota, Kurt (Mary) Popp, of Lodi, Brian (Sharon) Popp, of Caledonia, Mary Popp, of Arizona, Anne (Gene) Lewis and Sara Davis, both of Virginia and his father-in-law, Richard (Beverly) Popp, of Illinois. He is further survived by dear friends, Rick and Belinda Blasing, and Chuck and Joanie Hagberg, and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Dale was preceded in death by his mother and father, an infant brother, James and his mother-in-law, Kathleen Popp.

A visitation will be held for Dale on Saturday, January 19, 2019 at Generations in Plymouth, 1500 Douglas Dr., Plymouth, WI, from 11:00 a.m. until the time of service at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, all donations will be distributed to meaningful causes in Dale’s life.
