Daniel E. Sedlachek


Age 83 of Wilmington passed away peacefully Monday, November 16, 2020 at his home.

Born September 5, 1937 in Pipestone, Minnesota, Daniel Edward was the son of Edward Sedlachek and Florence DeBates. He was raised and educated in Pipestone, and graduated from Pipestone Area High School with the Class of 1956. Dan served honorably in the United States Navy until his retirement in 1976 after twenty years of service. He was a member of the VFW Malcom J. Mayo Post 5422 in Wilmington and served on the Honor Guard. Dan also held membership with the Wilmington Masonic Lodge 208 and Loyal Order of Moose Lodge 241, as well as the Elks. He attended First Presbyterian Church in Wilmington. Dan’s biggest passion was spending time with his family and friends in various settings.  He enjoyed golf and was an avid bowler in his younger years and continued to bowl as much as he could in his later years.

Survivors include his life companion, Helen Ziller of Wilmington, whom he married on April 23, 2016; special families members: his loving step daughters; Debbie (Kevin Sao) Marion and Veronica (Marty) Orr; grandchildren: Brian (Nicole) Furi, Isaac Orr, Erica Orr, Jay Mashburn and Jessica (Jeremy Penfield) Kahler, and great grandchildren Gavin and Mia Furi, Stella, Jeremy Jr. and Adam who were the apple of his eye and made him laugh.

Dan was preceded in death by his parents and sister-in-law Alice Ziller.
