Daniel Lee Simmering, 57, of Lucas, passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack on Wednesday, November 6, 2019. Daniel was born on April 5, 1962 in Mansfield, Ohio. He was the son of Harold and Rosemary (Lee) Simmering.
Dan was employed as a service technician at Emerson Process Management, and he was previously a volunteer firefighter with Monroe Township. A proud veteran, Dan served in the United States Air National Guard. Dan was a devoted family man and took pride in making his family's dreams come true. Dan enjoyed traveling and making friends where ever he went.
A talented and hardworking man, Dan enjoyed working in his shop on numerous projects. He found joy being outdoors whether it be cutting wood, target shooting, or just relaxing. Everyone who Dan met would say what a great guy he was and how he would do anything for anybody. In keeping with Dan's giving and helpful spirit, Dan's final act of kindness was giving the most precious gift anyone could give; the gift to save the lives of his fellow man through organ donation.
