Dean “Dino” Roemhild, of Port Washington, WI passed away peacefully with family by his side on Sunday, August 30, 2020, at the age of 73 years.
Dean was born in Milwaukee, WI in 1947 to William Roemhild and Louise Diego Plevak. He graduated Riverside High School, married his high school sweetheart, Dawn Montgomery, and enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1966. Dean served in the Vietnam War from 1967-1968 and continued with the Army Reserves until 1973. After serving in the Army, he worked for Wisconsin Electric at the Port Washington power plant for 35 years.
