Dean Kevin Woehl


Dean Kevin Woehl, 57, of Mandan, passed away on Nov. 22, 2022.

A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 29, at 1:00 p.m. at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church with Rev. Bob Caranicas officiating.  Burial will be held the following day at 1:00 pm at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery.  A livestream of the service will be available on the church website, https://www.gslcbismarck.com/.

Family will be receiving friends one hour prior to the service at the church.

Dean was born on August 6, 1965, to Raymond and Betty (Ley) Woehl in Wishek, ND.  He graduated from Wishek High School in 1984.  He attended Bismarck State College and graduated with a degree in Chemistry.   He joined the North Dakota National Guard with 22 years of service.  During this time, he traveled to Nicaragua, Panama, and Germany.  He served in the 141st Engineer Combat Battalion and was stationed in Iraq.

He worked for the ND State as a  Laboratory Tech at the Chemistry Lab.  In 2006 he changed careers and went to work for the City of Bismarck Wastewater Treatment Plant as an Industrial Pre-Treatment Technician.  In his spare time, he volunteered at Heaven’s Helpers Soup Café and was involved at his church, American Lutheran Church. He enjoyed fishing with friends and family, camping, playing cards, dancing and tending to his garden.

His pride and joy was his family.   His wife Sherri who he married in 2003, his children Miranda and Jacoby born in 1991 and 1993, his stepson Lance Forsythe and his many grandchildren.

Dean will be remembered as the guy with the goofy jokes, infectiously positive attitude, and the one who could always brighten up a room.  He was always kind to everyone he met and loved to make them smile.

Dean is survived by his wife, Sherri Woehl; daughter, Miranda Woehl; grandson, Hurricane Ulrich; son, Jacoby (Megan) Woehl; stepson, Lance (Ashley) Forsythe; step grandchildren, Calloway, Bianka, Barron, and Tommy; mom, Betty Woehl; brother Doug (Jo) Woehl; sisters, Peggy (Bill) Robinson and Della (Joel) Dewald; many nieces, nephews, friends, and special pet Bella.

He was preceded in death by his father, Raymond Woehl; and brothers, Kevin Woehl and Paul Woehl.

Thank you so much!

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

We appreciate that so very much!

Your smile, laugh and genuine spirit will be missed.

You know him well! We appreciate all you have done for us, true friends!

I met Dean back in 1995 when I was a summer intern at the NDDOH chemistry lab. We shared many laughs back then as well as over the years when we’d bump into each other. I had the pleasure of him “showing me the ropes” the times I helped out at the Soup Cafe. It was not only a pleasure to have known him but an honor. He took so much pride in everything he did. From working at the lab, to his services for the city of Bismarck, to serving in the military, to volunteering his time and talents at the Soup Cafe…brother, you will be missed.

You are so right, he will be greatly missed! Thanks for your kind words!

Served with Dean in Iraq in 2004. Great guy and always positive we will miss him a lot

Thank you for sharing your memories and also for your service to our country!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dean’s family. He was a great coworker and friend. Always had a joke to share but not necessarily a good one. He took great pride in the work he did for the city and always had a way to connect with every employee from young to old. A personality like his is hard to find. He will always be a part of our team and will forever be missed.

RIP my friend

To the Woehl Family,
My condolences on Dean’s passing. I enjoyed playing darts with him and his sister Peggy for many years. He was such a delight to be around. Peace and love be with you all.

Thank you for your kind words!

GOD loves You Rest In Peace my friend

Thank you, he is indeed at peace in God’s loving embrace.

Sherri, my heart is breaking for you and your family. Dean and I were the Wednesday night crew at the old Soup Kitchen for many years and he was the best part of my time there. We argued a lot (just because we are both German) but it was always in fun. We had so many laughs, especially at his corny jokes. I am going to miss him so much.

Thank you Roxie! Many people met him through the Soup Cafe, a mission that he loved to help with. Yes, we will miss him!
