David Loren “Dino” Gabeline, 63, of Danville and Yarmouth, died Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2023, at the University of Iowa Hospital.  He was born March 30, 1960 in Burlington to Robert Louis and Donna Lee Dodds Gabeline.  He was a 1978 graduate of Mediapolis High School.

Besides his wife, he is survived by his son Adam (Samantha) Gabeline and daughter Alexandra (Ryan) Menke, both of Danville; Papa to five grandchildren, Adrianna, Tate, Blake, Noah and Addison; brothers Mike Gabeline of Yarmouth, and Dan (Amy) Gabeline, who was not only his brother, but his partner and best friend; one sister Teri (Jeff) Wilkerson of Yarmouth; nieces and nephews; his dogs Glacier and Ruger; and a host of friends.  He was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.
