In loving memory of

Danny Henningfeld
November 9, 1951 - July 8, 2021

Dan Henningfeld passed away on July 8th, 2021. He will be forever loved by his family and greatly missed by his many friends. Although he was preceded in death way too soon by many members of his immediate family including his parents, Richard and Verona (Kirchoff) Henningfeld and his brothers, Richard Jr. and Dale Dan found a family of friends through his ownership of Pickerel Point Resort, work at Integrity Realty and his love of snowmobiling. He was very giving of his time and proud of his work with the Seabees (United States Naval Construction Battalion), membership with the Wabeno American Legion and involvement with the Association of Wisconsin Snowmobile Clubs. All will miss his booming greeting from across a crowded room along with his fun-loving, mischievous sense of humor. The number of friends and family that will miss him are too numerous to count and far too many to list here. A special hug, tears and a lot of love from Stephanie (Henningfeld) and Scott Warner, Jon and Stacelynn Henningfeld and their children Danny Henningfeld and Joshua and Jonathon Petersen, Ron and Linda Beguhn, Ross and Alyssa Hill, Kerri Warner, Helen Henningfeld, Brian "BJ" and Sami Paulson, Ronald and Betty Scholz, Dale and Kimberly Henningfeld, Nicole Jaramillo, Lyle and Pat Henningfeld, Don and Lynda Hansen, Terra Wilson and Jesse Kromm, Amy and Eric Payne, and finally a loving nuzzle from his cat Snickers.
A funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, July 17 from 11 a.m. at St. Mary Catholic Church in Pickerel with Reverend Dave Zimmerman officiating. Burial will take place in the Parish Cemetery where the Wabeno American Legion will provide military honors.
Visitation will be Friday, July 16 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Bradley Funeral Home, Antigo and Saturday from 10 to 11 am at the church. A parish wake service will be held Friday at 7 p.m. at the funeral home.

"Shocked beyond words. Known Dan since the early 90s from going to Pickerel Point Bar for his great Burgers and his joking and laughs. Many great times. He put his heart and sole into what he lived most. Snowmobiling king and being President if the Tombstone Pickerel Snowmobile Club for over 30 years. He had pride joy and love doing this for all snowmobiling enthusiasts. He never quit. Going on n to be Director of AWSC. He loved being with people if all ages. He never stopped living life to his fullest. If I could tell you now. We are soooo very happy to have had a fun time with you thru the years. Never mind the disagreement over stupid things. Glad we had a drink and laughed again at a bar with you recently. RIP You did a lot for the Community around you. Sorry we r missing the funeral while in MT. Our Sincerest Condolences to the family and closest friends too. Dave and Mary Schmitzer "

"He was a great guy to work with when dealing in real estate, always quick responses and an honest and down to earth man. Wish more had his ethics and humourism. Will miss him and only wish I would have met him when he owned the resort. Now Danny, you can rest in peace. Ron Welnetz"
