Dennis "Denny" Dragolovich

July 21, 1944 — February 27, 2023


A Celebration of Life for Denny's family and friends has been scheduled for Saturday, May 13, 2023, from 4:00 - 8:00 pm at The American Legion Hall, 518 Water St., Green Lake, WI 54941.

Dennis “Denny” Dragolovich, age 78, of Ripon, WI, passed away on February 27, 2023, at Bethel Home in Oshkosh, WI, with his loving family by his side.

Denny was born in Kewanee, IL, on July 21, 1944, son of Peter and Theresa (Brady) Dragolovich. He graduated from Wethersfield High School in Kewanee, IL and later joined the U.S. Army, where he served our country from 1967-1969. He was stationed in Germany for two years. He continued his education at Southern Illinois University, where he met the love of his life, Jill Benoy. They met in February and married later that year on September 12, 1970 in Freeport, IL. Together they moved to Ripon, WI in 1983, where he opened the Edward Jones office. He spent his career as a financial advisor, and grew strong relationships with the clients he served.

Denny had many hobbies and activities that brought joy to his life, including: bowling, golfing, target shooting and traveling. He and Jill were fortunate to have traveled to over 25 countries in their years of adventure. He was an avid Bears and Cubs fan, who was ecstatic to see the Cubs win the World Series in 2016. Denny was a car enthusiast and spent many years attending car shows, proudly displaying his restored 1989 Ford Mustang. He was a past member of Ripon Rotary, the American Legion, VFW and Ripon Area Car Enthusiasts. In 2012, Jill and Denny purchased a home in Arizona and enjoyed the cold WI winters under the warm AZ sun.

Denny is survived by his wife of 52 years, Jill Dragolovich; children, DeAnne Dragolovich and Greg (Jamie) Dragolovich; five grandsons, Jackson, Carter, Nolan, Will and Lawson; brother-in-law, Todd (Margaret) Benoy; and nephews, Kyle and Derek (Yonca) Benoy. He is preceded in death by his parents, Peter and Theresa Dragolovich; sister, Sharon Borota; brother-in-law, John Borota; nephew, John Borota; in-laws, Jack and Irene Benoy.

A private family service will be held at this time, with a celebration of life later in the year. A memorial is being established in his name. The family would like to thank Serenity Gardens at Bethel Homes, and special thanks to Kelly and Alice.
