Guy Richard Dettlo, age 68, passed away on Wednesday, August 16, 2023 at his residence in Stone Lake, WI. He was born on February 20, 1955, in Chicago, IL, the son of Ronald and Diane (Weyker) Dettlo. He was united in marriage to Darcea Dana Goodwin on June 9, 2003 in Chicago, IL.
Guy worked as a lead driver at Chicago O’Hare International Airport for over 35 years, taking care of snow removal in the winter and lawn maintenance in the summer. He retired to the Northwoods and settled on Sissabagama Lake in Stone Lake. He loved spending time on the lake, especially time fishing. He also took fishing trips with his family and friends to Canada. He was a Harley Davidson enthusiast and enjoyed a good long ride. Guy was also an amazing cook; Italian cuisine was definitely his favorite.
