Daniel Lee Leverenz passed away peacefully on May 16, 2019, after battling a serious illness for years.

He fought bravely with determination continuing his various jobs and hobbies until the end. With his kindness and generosity toward family and friends, “Danny” loved and lived life on his own terms. He became an amazing chef and baker ,a caretaker, a woodworker, and an excellent pool player. Most importantly, he was an avid reader and poet.

He is survived by his partner of many years, Phyllis Kay Lenss, sisters Gail Beach, Jean Malson (Raymond), Terrie Leverenz (Matt), Stepmother Joyce Leverenz and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by mother, Vera Embree, father Walter Leverenz, and sisters, Sheryl and Shelley. Celebrations of his life will be held in Minneapolis, MN and Whitewater, WI.
