Daniel Doerr

Daniel Lee Doerr, our hard-working and dedicated husband, father, grandfather, and brother, was born into eternal rest Saturday, November 16, 2019 at his home. Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday, November 22nd, at St. Michael Catholic Church in Remus, at 11:00 AM, with Father Tom Boufford as Celebrant. Visitation will take place at the church Thursday evening from 4 to 7 PM, and again on Friday morning from 10 AM to the time of service. Burial will follow in St. Michael’s Cemetery. Dan was born Oct. 20, 1950, one of 12 children born to the late Albert and Edna (Karcher) Doerr. He was locally educated through St. Michael’s School, and Remus High School, before he joined the United States Marine Corps, proudly serving his country for four years. Dan married the love of his life, Linda Ruetz, on September 15, 1978, and the two grew their family to include three children. An avid outdoorsman, Dan enjoyed hunting, fishing, and cutting wood. He rarely ever sat still, and was always the first to help others when given the chance. You could find him with a smile on his face at every VFW pancake breakfast, and walking with his fellow veterans in every local parade throughout the year. A wonderful grandfather, Dan often watched his grandchildren and enjoyed every minute of it. And being the hands on grandpa he was, Dan was always out in the yard with the kids playing ball and teaching them about his love for the outdoors. Humorous, outgoing, and loving were all words used to describe Dan. He was lovingly referred to as “Shurd” by his family and friends (don’t ask why), and loved to tease others as well. Left to cherish his memory are his wife of 41 years, Linda Doerr; children, Danielle (David) Haynes, Matthew (Danielle) Doerr, and Ashley Doerr; brother, Vernon Doerr; sister, Ruth Lobert; grandchildren, Saylor, Emily, Hailey, Meadow, Violet, and Henley, and many nieces and nephews. Dan was preceded in death by nine siblings, and his nephew, Paul “Shorty” Doerr. Those desiring may direct memorial contributions to St. Michael Church or School in lieu of flowers.
