Dakoda Ryan Michael Kline

Dakoda Ryan Michael Kline, age 25, of Juneau, passed away on April 8th, 2017. He was the son of Dana Vincent and Dean Kline. Dakoda was born on September 8th, 1991 at Beaver Dam Community Hospital.

Dakoda, also known as “Kody,” grew up sharing his time between Rio and Sussex, WI. He attended Rio Elementary and Middle School along with Hamilton High School in Sussex where he met the love of his life, Brittany. On December 20th, 2008, Dakoda graduated from The Challenge Academy of Wisconsin with honors. He had recently enrolled in taxidermy school in pursuit of his passion for the outdoors.

Dakoda loved spending his time in nature. He was an avid hunter and fisherman who enjoyed sharing these experiences with his closest friends and family, especially his brother Austyn, and his children, Kaden and Kyla. Dakoda spent a lot of time and energy shed hunting and was extremely proud of his collection. He loved sharing the stories of every fish, deer, and antler he worked to bring home. 

Always one to crack a joke, Dakoda enjoyed coaching his son’s little league baseball team and spending time talking about life with his close family members.  Dakoda was a family man and was always the protector of the ones he loves, there is no doubt that he will continue to do so. He will be remembered as a great soulmate, father, son and brother. 

Dakoda is survived by his fiancée Brittany Stedman, and their children Kaden and Kyla, of Juneau; mother Dana (Tony Rauch) Vincent, of Juneau; father Dean (Natalie) Kline, of Menomonee Falls;paternal grandmother Jessie Kline, of Horicon; sisters Hannah Stortz, of Mayville, and Bailey Huebner of Juneau; brother Austyn Huebner, of Juneau; brother Cade Radder, of Menomonee Falls; uncle Jason (Michelle Andjulis) Vincent, of Friendship; Aunt Debe Martin, of Madison; Uncle Dave (Ronna) Kline, of Syracuse, New York; Uncle Don Kline, of Horicon; God parents Shelli Manning, of Horicon, and Chad Sizemore, of Kentucky; and Brittany’s mother Brooke Black of Juneau. Dakoda is further survived by many other close relatives and friends.
