Wilfred (Willie) Eugene DOLECHECK was born July 29, 1942 at Leon, Iowa to Leo and Inez (POSLER) DOLECHECK. He grew up in Diagonal, Iowa graduating from high school there in 1961.

For a time he ran movies at the theaters in central Iowa with Robert GRAY.

In Nashua, Iowa at the Little Brown Church he married Patricia PATTERSON on June 16, 1980. They lived in Des Moines and now in Johnston, Iowa.

He enjoyed caring for his yard and doing a garden each year. Following his retirement, he enjoyed going camping, doing craft shows and spending many winters in Donna, Texas with many good friends they met there.

For many years he rode the complete route of RAGBRAI. He enjoyed visiting all the Iowa towns along the route and the people he met while riding.

He is survived by Patricia, his wife of 32 years; stepson, Tim (Kit) PATTERSON; seven step-grandchildren; four step-great-grandchildren, and sister, Carolyn GARDNER.

He was preceded in death by his parents and stepdaughter, Kim LYNN.
