Daniel Feuling age 63, of Alma, Wisconsin passed away at his home on Sunday, January 31, 2021, after a long battle with cancer. Dan was born on February 27, 1957, in Arcadia, Wisconsin to Ed and Geneva Feuling. Dan was the oldest of 6 children. Dan started working as a young kid on the farm, he later joined the Army in February of 1977, and was trained as a Tactical Circuit Controller. He became stationed at the Heleamano Base, in Oahu, Hawaii. During his time in Hawaii he became scuba certified and enjoyed diving quite a bit. After leaving the Army, Dan began working odd jobs, which included working with his brother John cutting down trees, working as a custodian at local bars in Alma, up until his illness made him no longer capable of working. Dan was a man with a carefree attitude and more often than not, did whatever made him happy. Whether it was fishing, canoeing, enjoying a good book, or laughing and telling jokes. He was a big science fiction fan, but also had a collection of cookbooks, as Tater, one of his good friends said “He made good treats!”
Dan is survived by his siblings; John Feuling of Alma, Wisconsin, Jean and Jerry Bignell of Owatonna, Minnesota, Nancy and Ken Schiechie of Alma, Wisconsin, Sonya and Kevin Ebersold of Alma, Wisconsin, and Edmund Feuling, Jr. of Alma, Wisconsin.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his paternal grandparents, and maternal grandparents, along with many uncles, aunts, a niece, a great niece, and a great nephew.
Dan will be laid to rest after a private family funeral, with military honors to be held at a later date, once the weather is better. Dan, in his simplistic ways did not want a funeral, and requests that no cards or money be sent to the family but donations to your local food shelter, church or the Wounded Warrior Project in Dan’s name be made. We are assured that your hearts are in the right place, and are very grateful for that.
