Dennis Dean Dickinson, age 72, of Dodgeville, passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 18, 2020 at home after a short battle with cancer.
He was born in Dodgeville, WI on March 4, 1948, the son of Gaige and Alice (Rakow) Dickinson. He graduated from River Valley High School in 1966 and enlisted in the United States Navy serving from 1967-1971.

Dennis was proud of his sobriety in 1981 and made many lifelong friends in AA. Dennis enjoyed tending to his gardens, a cup of coffee on the patio, gambling, the Green Bay Packers, his pup Jackson and grandpups Miko, Winston, and Remi, but most of all family gatherings and anything that involved his grandchildren!
