Dwight Sabee Obituary

Dwight Andrew Sabee, age 56 of West Bend, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Saturday, November 11, 2023. He was born on February 11, 1967 to John Michael and Marian Edith (Wildhagen) Sabee in Appleton. Dwight graduated from Neenah High School, class of 1985.  He graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1988 from Marquette University.  Dwight later obtained his MBA from Cardinal Stritch University in 1997.

Dwight was the Engineering Manager for Marine Products at Twin Disc before returning to Appleton to work at JMS Converters.  Most recently Dwight was the Test and Warranty manager for Regal Rexnord where he was responsible for all warranty returns and claims as well as the Engineering Law lab where he conducted and coordinated new product development testing, customer testing and production testing.  Dwight was very proud of his professional accomplishments and truly loved his job.  He will be greatly missed  for his knowledge and expertise, but most of all for the person he was. 

On August 22, 2005 he married Kristine Noelle Heintz. Dwight was the life of the party; he enjoyed skiing, hiking, swimming and reading, he was an avid Packers fan and loved music (especially heavy metal); he played many instruments, including the piano and bass guitar, but the drums were his true love. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

He is survived by his wife Kristine, stepson Matthew (Samantha) Berrens, grandson Joseph Berrens, favorite sister Pamela McAvoy and parents Michael and Marian Sabee. Dwight is further survived by his brother-in-law Travis (Julie) Heintz, mother and father-in-law Robert and Karen Heintz, nieces and nephews; Adam and Sarah McAvoy and Andrew McAvoy Sabee; and Andrew and Adam Heintz; aunts Pamela Sabee and Sherry (Dennis) Ahlman, as well as other relatives and friends.

Preceding him in death are his sister, Penelope Sabee, grandparents, Reinhardt and Lois Sabee and uncle Craig Sabee.
