Daniel Rassner, 77, of Peru, passed away on Saturday, April 2, 2022 at Blair Ridge Health Campus in Peru.
He was born in Peru on September 14, 1944 to Russell and Lucile (Wray) Rassner. He graduated from Peru High School and Ball State University. He was on the state’s number one tennis team during high school. He was also a gifted stained glass artist.
Danny always practiced perfect English. Anyone who really him was there to see what perfect manners were. He was always kind, taking his snowblower around the entire block so people didn’t have to shovel. Also, Danny planned his own funeral. One of his wishes was to have it on the weekend, so that people wouldn’t have to take off work. He always thought of others.
He is survived by his sister Linda Rassner Devine (husband Richard) of Kokomo, nephew Mark Daniel Devine of Kokomo, and nieces Katelyn Devine of Indianapolis, Jessica Devine of Kokomo, great nephew Sean Michael Devine of Kokomo, loved partner Pam Woodhouse of Peru, and cousins Bryce Bigley of Culver, David Bigley of Culver, and Ron Rassner of Peru.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his grandparents David & Margery Rassner and Sylvester & Berneice Wray; sister Lori Pierce; niece, Dawn Devine; and cousins Dr. Kathryn Rassner Kolar of Mississippi, and Skip Rassner. He was also preceded by a woman whom we thought of as our grandmother, Stella Carothers.
Visitation will be held from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday, April 9, 2022 at Flowers-Leedy Funeral Home, 105 West Third Street, Peru, Indiana. Funeral service will follow at 3pm, with Richard Devine officiating. A private burial will be held at a later date at Mount Hope Cemetery in Peru.
Memorial contributions may be made to the Scratching Post in Peru, and the American Heart Association.
