Daniel Lynn Davel was born on December 13, 1945 in Marshfield, WI to Bernard W. and Katherine L. (nee DeYoung) Davel.  He was raised in Loyal, receiving his education at St. Anthony's Parochial School and Loyal Public Schools.  Dan then entered the U.S. Army on June 16, 1966 and fought in Vietnam until he was later honorably discharged due to injuries.  He was awarded the Purple Heart.  Dan was united in marriage to Louella C. Raatz on April 17, 1971 at St. Anthony Catholic Church in Loyal.  They later divorced.  Dan held various jobs during his lifetime; farmer, construction worker, and for many years, drove over-the-road for Windy Hill until retiring.

He was a member of St. Anthony Catholic Church, and had many interests, but especially enjoyed hunting with his nephew, Bobby, fishing, and spending time with his family.

Dan will be dearly missed by his daughter: Dana (Kevin) Froeba of Loyal; two grandchildren: Erin (Matt) Wilke of Loyal, and Waylon Froeba of Elk Mound, WI; two great-grandchildren: Ryder and Piper Wilke; one brother: Tom Davel of Nekoosa; two sisters: Marcella "Sally" Bauer of Wisconsin Rapids, and Marliss "Marcy" (Don) Peters of Nekoosa; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
