Daniel D. Heermann

MODESTO, Calif. — Mr. Daniel D. Heermann, 65, formerly of Morris, died Monday, Sept. 3, 2012, as result of a stroke at the memorial hospital in Modesto, Calif.

Born July 29, 1947, in Chicago, Daniel was the son of Doris (Harrington) and Bill Heermann. They preceded him in death.

He graduated from Morris High School with the class of 1965 and attended Joliet Junior College.

Dan loved music, writing songs and playing guitar.

His love of nature first led him to move to Colorado and then to settle in Sonora, Calif. He loved to hike in the mountains with his dog, Buddy.

Survivors include two sons, Page (Michelle) Heermann of Shorewood, Ill., and Casey (Kathy McGowan) Heerman of Joliet, Ill.; grandchildren, Alison (Brent) Leiterman of Shorewood, Kayla Hultink of Calumet City, Ill., Zachary Heermann of Crest Hill, Ill. and Kevin McGowan of Joliet; step-grandchildren, Nicki and Kristy Kesselring of Shorewood and Gavin McGowan; stepmother, Charlotte (Chalky) Heerman; and a special cousin, Becky (Woody) Erickson.

Per his wishes, he has been cremated. His ashes were spread at his favorite place along the Illinois River.

Cards of condolences can be mailed to P.O. Box 673, Yorkville, Ill., 60560.
