In Memory

This eternal flame burns forever
in remembrance of Dennis R. Koneman

Dennis R. Koneman

May 2, 1942 - October 18, 2020

Dennis Koneman, 78 of Garfield passed away Sunday 10/18/20 at NW

Medical Center. He survived a massive heart attack on 9/22 and was

doing very well when he suffered a 2nd one on 10/8. He fought valiantly

for 10 days. Denny was born in Chicago on May 2, 1942 to Alfred

Koneman and Georgianna (Stanke) Koneman. He is survived by Sandi,

his soul-mate of 39 years. Also his first wife Evelyn, and their children

Linda Koneman (Randy Bleier) and Robert Koneman. He is also survived

by 3 half-sisters, Debbie, Georgie and Julie, and one half-brother, Joe

Iozzo. Plus many nieces and nephews.

Denny was a trucker, an avid hunter, fisherman and horseman. He and

Sandi became known internationally for their high-quality Black Arabians.

They exported 32 to other countries. They even sold 2 to the Sultan

of Oman. Denny was a crack shot and knew everything about guns. And

Denny was an excellent card-player. He could play any card game well,

but he especially liked "Cut-throat Euchre". Denny and Sandi especially

enjoyed camping with the Jolly Rogers Camping Club. Denny was friendly

and out-going. He was quick to offer his help to anyone needing it.

He made lots of friends. Denny loved their 34-acre ranch in Garfield. He

kept 9 acres meticulously mowed and weed-whipped. He was so proud when

everyone said it looked "like a Golf Course".

Denny wanted to be cremated. He did not want a funeral. But he'd be

honored if all of his friends want to get together to share memories of

happy times they spent with him. Plans will be made to do that in the

future when large gatherings can take place safely. For more info you can

keep in touch with Sandi at

Though He's gone, He is not forgotten.
Though absent, He remains in spirit.
Though once a worker, He now rests.
