  6. Danial was a student in my class when he was in the 8th grade at Elise Middle School. I remember him as a very friendly, polite young man. Once in awhile, especially if the weather was pretty, Danial might just miss a day to go fishing. 😊 I always enjoyed hearing about what he had caught when he returned to school the next day. He even shared with me where his favorite fishing spot was. Years later, I saw Danial at the grocery store. Still, that same friendly, polite fellow with a smile on his face and a short fishing story to tell. I will be praying for his family.

  13. Danial was one of my second grade students at Robbins Elementary. He was making an impact on people’s lives, even then, with his sweet, kind, spirit. Danial was a blessing to those around him and I feel extremely blessed to have known him. He will be missed by all the lives he touched. My thoughts and prayers are with Robin, Danny, Ashton and all his family and friends.

  14. Just met Dan the first of December when he and Cam put a metal roof on my moms house. I was so impressed by his politeness for a young man and his commitment to do a good job. He was so particular about picking up even the smallest pieces of trash. I took them cake and hot cocoa that chilly morning and they couldn’t get enough of thanking me for it. They both (he and Cam) were raised well. I can’t imagine how much you will miss him! We will be keeping you in our prayers!

  15. Mr and Mrs. Hoeppner, Cameron and family, I am grieved for you by your loss of Danial. I am praying for you all. May God cradle you all in His loving arms in your grief and in the days to come. God bless. I love you. Bruce and Kim Williams
