Daniel “Dan” L. Kohlwey

Daniel “Dan” L. Kohlwey of Cedarburg passed away peacefully on April 1, 2023, at Horizon Lawlis Family Hospice in Mequon at the age of 71.

Dan was born in Port Washington on April 6, 1951, to the late George F. and the late Shirley (nee Kegler) Kohlwey.

He was married at St. Paul Lutheran Church to his beloved wife, Carol (nee Albright).

He served many years on parish properties and was an active member of the church, where he enjoyed ushering and volunteering.

Dan grew up in a farming family and worked on the farm into his 20s. He was employed at Grob Inc. for 40 years and was the caretaker of the Grob property for many years.

Because of Dan’s giving heart, he always lent a helping hand to neighbors and friends when he saw a need. He went on mission trips in 2006 and 2007 to needy communities in Fairbanks, Ruby and Tanana, Alaska. Dan was active in the Disaster Alert Team through St. Paul Lutheran Church, where he went on a mission to do clean up work in Missouri. He also worked with St. Paul’s Volunteer Team to do renovations of the pastor’s homes.

Dan joined the Cedarburg Garden Club to support his wife Carol in their love for gardening. He would help with the annual plant sale and Harvest Festival through the Garden Club.

Dan is survived by his loving wife Carol and his children  Kelly, Kerry (Shaun) Nelson, Kyle, Christine Kolowith and Tommy (Caitlin) Kolowith.

He was the grandfather of Carissa, Caitlin, Trinity, Sadie, Kailey, Adelaide, Scarlett and Evelyn; loving brother of Judith (Wayne) Wolff, Douglas (Betty), Debra (Leon) Herther and Cynthia (Robert) Roden; and brother-in-law of  Mary (Charles II “Chip”) Michel, Jennifer Leyen, John (Melanie) Albright, Deborah Albright, Jane (John) McQuillan, Quigg Albright and Matt Albright.

He is further survived by many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

A memorial service will be held at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 701 Washington St., Grafton, Wis., on Saturday April 22, 2023, at noon. Visitation will be held at the church from 10 to 11:45 a.m.
