Nowobielski, Gayle H. (12 February 1955 - 25 December 2009) 

Gayle H. Nowobielski, age 54, died of natural causes at his home in Burlington, WI on Christmas Day 2009. 

Gayle was born in Stanley, WI on February 12, 1955.  He graduated from Thorp High School in 1973.  For over 30 years, Gayle was a nationally respected life insurance underwriter for ITT Life, E. R. Hutton, Kemper, Reliable, Capitol Bankers, and Lincoln National to name a few.  

Gayle was a brilliant but troubled soul that fought hard to live a life with a love of family, a passion for field and stream, a joy for his trustworthy friends and a peace he found spending time with his cherished dogs Jack and Riley. 

He is survived by his father, Henry (Colleen) Nowobielski; mother, Gert Higley; brothers: Gary (Deb Woodworth) Nowobielski and Jess (Kaye) Nowobielski; sisters: Linda (Tom) Carrigan, Lois (Dean) Benzschawel, and Lori (Ed) Hock; and last, but not least, his surviving golden retriever, Riley. 

In lieu of flowers, etc., a donation to your nearest Humane Society would be welcome by the family.  A memorial service will be held sometime and somewhere before the maples turn blaze orange off the garrison Field next fall.
