Wautlet remembered for his community support and impact

Longtime Algoma grocer Dennis “Denny” Wautlet is being remembered for his passion for life and leadership in the business community. Wautlet passed away last Thursday at the age of 79. He opened Denny’s Red Owl in 1968 and operated the supermarket until 2008 when his daughter Jodi purchased it. Algoma Mayor Wayne Schmidt says he will never forget Denny’s smile and engaging personality that people loved. Schmidt adds that Wautlet would step up for the Algoma community at any given time.



A celebration of Wautlet’s life will be held at Schinderle Funeral Home on Wednesday from 4 pm to 7 pm and continue at 9:00 am on Thursday until the time of the mass at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Algoma.
