Daniel Libner of Rice Lake, WI passed away peacefully on March 22, 2021 at Marshfield Medical Center in Rice Lake, WI. Dan was born to Elmer and Beverly Libner on March 24, 1945 in Leavenworth, KS.
A spirited individual, Dan spent his whole life dedicated to serving others. He worked at the Barron County Day Development Center for 32 years, and often shared fond memories of those he spent time with. In his retirement, Dan enjoyed watching his favorite Wisconsin sports teams, including his beloved Green Bay Packers, and camaraderie with friends. If he wasn’t at home watching sports, you could find Dan at any of the local restaurants meeting up with friends and sharing a meal.
Dan is preceded in death by both of his parents, little brother Johnny, and other extended family.
Dan is survived by his children, David Allen, Daniel (Dorcas) Libner of Muldrow, OK, Casie Libner of Rice Lake, WI, Luke Libner of Rice Lake, WI, and Aaron (Erin) Libner of Eau Claire, WI; grandchildren, Tabitha (Ted) Bradley, Cara (Gideon) Millar, Samuel, Levi, Sarah, Annamarie, Laura, Noela, Silas, and Raelynn; and great-grandchildren. Dan loved his family very much and was thankful for every opportunity to connect with them, near and far.
The family would like to send a special thank you to Dan’s good friends Lee Kuhl, Brian Mullin, and Debra Haynes for all their assistance the last couple of years and being so wonderful to our Pops.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Dan’s name.
