Clarence “Dennis” D. Rabideau
May 31, 1947 – October 31, 2021
Dennis passed away peacefully on October 31, 2021 at the age of 74. Beloved husband and best friend of Ruth (nee Springer) for 51 years. Cherished father of Stacy (Chris) Flechner and Brian (Amy) Rabideau. Proud and loving grandpa of Ben and Alessa. He is now reunited with his grandson Joe and was no doubt greeted by him with open arms.
Dennis was born in Milwaukee to Clarence and Alice Rabideau. He is survived by a sister, Alice (Robert) Krueger. He is preceded in death by five brothers and sisters. He will be fondly remembered by many other family members, nieces, nephews and friends.
Dennis served in the US Army during the Vietnam War and was a proud veteran. He loved his scratch off lottery tickets and slot machines. Back in the day when his body would allow, he loved to fish, hunt, do some woodworking and tinker around on cars. He could fix anything! He had a great sense of humor and loved to play jokes. Dennis asked for so little, but gave so very much.
The family would like to send a special note of thanks to the doctors and nursing staff at Froedtert NICU for their loving care given to Dennis at his time of need. Also, a special note of thanks to the many years of excellent care given by the staff at the Milwaukee Zablocki VA Medical Center.
