Drew Anthony Dehncke, the son of Todd and Catherine Allan, was born July 6, 1984 in Redwood Falls, Minnesota. Drew grew up in Marshall, Minnesota through kindergarten then moved to Perham, Minnesota where he acquired his GED in 2007. He worked in a variety of fields in the Perham area, but his garage is where his passion lived.
Drew met the love of his life, Kacey Baker, in December of 2007. On June 20, 2015 Drew married Kacey at Phelps Mill and they made their home with their three dogs, Cash, Penny and Meeka in rural Perham. Drew was an avid dog lover and builder, whether it was motor vehicles or custom enclosures for his pets. He enjoyed music, working on his mud truck, fishing, four-wheeling, snowmobiling, landscaping projects in his yard and surrounding himself with those he loved. Drew would create laughter wherever he went and the sound of his own laugh was unmistakable.
Drew Dehncke died Wednesday, July 1, 2015 in his home at the age of 30 years, 11 months and 25 days.
Surviving Drew is his wife, Kacey Dehncke of Perham; his parents, Todd and Catherine Allan; his siblings, Desirae Allan (Andrew LaFountain), Amber Allan (Michael Heminsley), Kelsey (Michael) Marquart, Genna, Tanner, Sheldon and Jerzie Wohlman; his grandfather, Donald Dehncke; his nephew, Jace Marquart; along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and in-laws.
Preceding Drew in death were his grandparents, Mary Jane Dehncke, LaVerne and Bud Allan; and his aunts and uncles.
Blessed be his memory.
