Dennis L. Shadrick, 74, of Granton, died on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at his residence. A celebration of Dennis’s life will be held on the afternoon of opening fishing day, Saturday, May 2 at 1 p.m. at the Granton Community Park, 110 N. Main St., Hwy K, Granton. Dennis was born on Sept. 6, 1945 in Medford, the son of Roy and Ruth (Jarchow) Shadrick. He served in the U.S. Army from 1963 to 1967 and then was united in marriage to Joan M. Faber in Goodrich. After they were married, they moved to Granton. Dennis worked for TDS in Neillsville for 32 years before retiring.

Dennis had a love for the outdoors and considered their cabin in Minocqua as his second home. He welcomed his family to enjoy the serenity of nature in fishing, hunting and ATV rides. He made so many memories for his grandchildren.

Dennis is survived by his wife, Joan; two children, Tammy (Chad) Kowalski of Stevens Point and Shawn (Jenny) Shadrick of Loyal; five grandchildren, Shayna and Kaytlyn Kowalski and Natasha, Danica and Dane Shadrick; six siblings, Betty (Ray) Hedin of Louisiana, Bob (Donna) Shadrick of Phillips, Sharon Matson of Janesville, Barb (Randy) Manecke of Marathon City and David (Shiela) Shadrick and Joan (Richie) Dahl, all of Medford; and a sister-in-law, Irene Shadrick of Janesville. He is further survived by many nieces and nephews and other extended family and friends.

In addition to his parents, Dennis was preceded in death by a brother, Jack A. Shadrick.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the family for designation at a later date.
