Ellsford "Al" O. Dahl

February 14, 1935 — July 26, 2020

Ellsford “Al” O. Dahl of Waukesha died on Sunday, July 26, 2020 at Linden Court at the age of 85. He was born in Glenwood, Minnesota on February 14, 1935 the son of Carl and Tillie (nee Haakenson) Dahl. On August 21, 1954 he married Joyce A. Davidson. Al worked for 37 years at Wisconsin Centrifugal as a melter. He took pride in everything he did. Al enjoyed golfing and bowling. He was a die-hard Minnesota Vikings and Twins fan. Al enjoyed visiting family in Minnesota and taking vacations with his Wife, sons, and grandchildren. Nothing warmed him up more than being around his family. You could always see him with a smile on his face and if you were lucky you could catch him singing a tune.

He was the proud grandfather of Sean, Heather, Brandon, Kelsey, Jake, Amanda, Kelly, Caitlin, Molly, Anna and Carter and great-grandfather of Gabriel and Laila.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his granddaughter Alicia and brother Leo Dahl.
