Dustin Lewey

Dustin J. Lewey, 41, of Monona, formerly of Waukon, died Monday, July 1, 2024, at his home in Monona. Memorial services were held Monday, July 8 at Martin - Grau Funeral Home in Waukon with Pastor Rusty Phillips officiating. Burial followed at Sixteen Cemetery in rural Harpers Ferry.

Dustin James Lewey was born May 26, 1983, in Waukon, the son of Michael R. Lewey and Cindy (Beisker) Topel. He was baptized at St. Patrick Catholic Church and attended Waukon High School. Dustin was a welder at Gencor in Marquette and owned Lewey Mobile Welders with his son, Jese, as well. July 4, 2014, he married Erica Rose McGeough in Las Vegas, NV, and they made their home in Monona.

When he was younger, Dustin liked bird hunting. He loved fishing and mushroom hunting (more so eating the mushrooms than the hunting part). Dustin was a great cook and griller and could put together a competition-worthy chili. A big Indianapolis Colts fan, he attended several games with family throughout the years and also liked going to his kids’ sporting events. Traveling, going to parades, and watching Seinfeld were favorite activities as well. When he wasn’t working, Dustin loved to weld and fabricate at home too.

He is survived by his wife, Erica, of Monona; four children: Jese (Jada) Lewey and Kaylee and Kynlee Baker, all of Monona, and Alix Goeke of Patch Grove, WI; a granddaughter, Bexley Whiteacre of Sparta, WI; his mom, Cindy Topel of Monona; his siblings: Greg (Mari) Lewey, Clark (Barb) Lewey, and Christine (Troy) Dixon, all of Decorah, and Randall (Melissa) Steele Jr. of Indiana; his grandmother, Irene Lewey of Waukon; his mother-in-law, Helen (Bob) McGeough of Waterville; his father-in-law, Mike McGeough of Monona; his sisters-in-law: Michelle (Dustin) Henkes and Morgan (Brad) Radloff, both of Monona, and Emily (Jay) Jones of Blair, WI; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles.

Dustin was preceded in death by his father, Mike Lewey; his brother, Jese Lewey; his dad, Steve Topel; his sister-in-law, Nicole McGeough; and his grandparents.
