Allen "Al" Sabel

June 6, 1934 — August 20, 2021

Allen (Al) Sabel, 87, of De Pere, passed away Friday, August 20, 2021, after a battle with Dementia. The son of Aloys and Leone (Pechota) Sabel was born June 6, 1934 in De Pere. On July 30, 1982 Al married the love of his life, Carol Pansier, at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church.           
Al served his country for two years in the US Army, then graduated from UW Madison with a degree in accounting.  He started his career as an auditor for the State of Wisconsin where he audited local governments in the state.  There he met his lifelong friend and business partner, Mike Konecny.  Al and Mike then went on to start their own CPA firm, Konecny and Sabel that eventually merged with Jonet and Fountain, where Al worked for 12 years.  Their successful firm merged again with one of the largest CPA firms in the state, Schenk and Associates, where Al retired.  Al was an active member and past president of the De Pere Kiwanis Club. He took great pride in the City of De Pere where he lived his whole life.            
Al was an avid golfer at Twin Oaks. He enjoyed reading, history and listening to the Golden Oldies. Al worked out at the YMCA every day for over 60 years. His family was the most important thing to him.
