Dennis McIntosh Obituary

Dennis David McIntosh 76, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away at home with family by his side on November 25, 2023.  He was born on November 9, 1947, in Chicago, IL to Horace and Bernice (Planz) McIntosh.  Dennis barely graduated from Willowbrook High School in 1965.  On November 26, 1966, he married Jane F. Kneeland in St. Paul, MN.  She preceded him in death on October 1, 2022. 

In 1967, he was drafted into the U.S. Army and served in Vietnam from 1968 to 1969 as an M.P. in the D.M.Z. with the 5th Infantry.  When he returned home, he decided to serve his community and became a deputy for DuPage County Sheriff’s Department.  In 1978, he and his family moved to Wisconsin where he worked in law enforcement for another 25 years, ending his police career as Chief in Sturgeon Bay.  Dennis was proud of his police career, especially graduating from the F.B.I. academy in 1985.

In 2004, he was elected Mayor of Sturgeon Bay and accomplished many of the city’s goals including securing funding for the Oregon Street Bridge and the new city hall.  From 2004 to 2016 Dennis had another career at Baylake Bank as their Corporate Security Officer, where he made many wonderful friendships.  Upon retirement, Dennis enjoyed going to the casino and driving his Corvette and taking it to several car shows.  His favorite thing to do was spend time with his granddaughter, Lauren.  In 2023, Dennis found happiness and companionship with Karen Balchunas and on September 11, 2023, they were married in Sturgeon Bay.

Survivors include his wife, Karen; son, Scott (Regina) McIntosh, Green Bay; daughter, Jennifer (Jonathan) Meacham, Sturgeon Bay; one granddaughter, Lauren Meacham; a sister, Carol Cummings, Lyndon, IL; two brothers, Timothy “Bud” McIntosh, Glen Ellyn, IL; Chuck (Sue) McIntosh, Lombard, IL; two brothers-in-law, James (Georgia) Kneeland, De Pere, WI; Michael (Connie) Kneeland, Inver Grove Heights, MN; many nieces, nephews, and cousins.  He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Jane; brother-in-law, Wesley Cummings; and sister-in-law, Kathleen Kneeland.
