Dennis Carl Moritz

Dennis Carl Moritz, 72, of Rhinelander passed away on March 22, 2022 after a short but courageous battle with illness. He died with his family by his side holding his hand. Dennis was a lifelong resident of Rhinelander. He was born on April 14, 1949, the son of Carl and Irene (Paremski) Moritz. He graduated from Rhinelander High School in 1967 and then attended UW Superior, graduating in 1971.

After his schooling Dennis went to work with his Dad in their commercial painting business, Moritz Painting. Dennis became owner and operator of Moritz Painting and ran the business until his retirement. Dennis worked hard and was a respected painter in the Rhinelander area.

Dennis loved spending time with his family, enjoyed reading, had a great appreciation for music, had a soft spot for animals and had an infectious sense of humor. He was a lifelong member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church.

In 1972 he married the love of his life, the former Sherry Sasanas. God blessed them with nearly 50 years of marriage and their two children.

Dennis is survived by his wife Sherry, his daughter Nicole (Erick) Wellnitz, his son Chad (Megan) Moritz, his grandchildren Jackson and Kendall Moritz, sisters Judy Lundin and Christi (Richard) Foster, niece Courtney (Ross) Wyman, nephew Korey (Martha) Lundin, grand-niece Natalie, grand-nephew Ethan Wyman, other family and many friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents John and Elsie Paremski and his brother-in-law Glenn Lundin.
