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.

Dan leaves behind his wife of 25 years, Trish (Hoeflich) Simmering; his son, Jason (Tara) Simmering; his daughter, Morgan (Travis) Stacy; his grandchildren, Macie, Owen, and Addison Simmering, and Penelope Stacy; his sisters, Barbara (Mark) Maraz, and Catherine (Kevin) Weyer; and numerous nieces and nephews. Also survived by numerous in-laws and friends who were special to him. He was preceded in death by his parents.

A celebration of Dan's life will be held at Kindred Kove, 1710 LorKay Drive on Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 2:00-6:00 pm. Memorial contributions may be made to the family in care of Wappner Funeral Directors. The Diamond Street Home of Wappner Funeral Directors is honored to serve the Simmering family.
