Michael Dahl

Michael Dahl was born in Albert Lea on November 20, 1970, to Art and Lorraine (Christensen) Dahl. He grew up in Albert Lea and graduated from Albert Lea High School in 1989. After high school, he worked at Pamida and entered their management training program. After completing his training, he moved to Waukon, Iowa where he managed his first store. He would later move on to manage stores in Manchester, IA and then Knoxville, IA. Mike then switched his career path to follow his long-time passion of custom cabinet making and started Dahl Cabinet Making. He then began working at Performance Display. His most recent job was renovating properties with Gutschmidt properties.

Mike loved going to the upper Peninsula and Wisconsin snowmobiling with his friends and was known as the “leaning tower of Donkeyville”. Mike also enjoyed seeing family and friends in MN.  Many of us enjoy treasures Mike has made for us.  He also enjoyed cooking and called me just last week for another family recipe.

Mike is survived by his sister, Tami (Jeff) Woods; nephew, Nate Woods; nieces Tara and Kayla Woods; great nieces Starlla, Kaylee and Ellie; many wonderful aunts and uncles, cousins; extended family, Glen and LeAnn Juveland and their family; childhood friend Travis Reichl (Angie) and their family and special friend, Heather.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Art and Lorraine Dahl; infant brothers, Todd and Douglas; paternal grandparents, Kenny and Myrtle Nelson; maternal grandparents, Carl and Hilda Dahl.
