Daniel E Loos

November 9, 1951 — October 6, 2023

Weston

Daniel E. Loos, age 71, of Weston Wi, died peacefully at home surrounded by family on Friday, October 6, 2023, after three years of treatment for pancreatic cancer.

Dan was born on November 9, 1951, to the late Henry and Elaine (Roubal) Loos of Wausau.  In September 1998, Dan was a lucky recipient of a liver transplant, the "Gift of Life" that gave Dan an additional 25 precious years with his family.

Dan is survived by his wife of 50 years Kim, son; Matthew Loos (Krystan Beaumont), daughter; Katie Loos (Matt Schneider), and his granddaughter Morgan Schneider, whom he loved with all his heart. Dan is further survived by brothers; John Loos (Connie), Mark Loos (Sandy), and sisters; Charlotte Gassner (Sam), Christine Kedrowski (Larry), Ginny Nienow (Ken), brother-in-law; Jeff Harenda (Beth) and Tom Harenda (Sherrie), many nieces and nephews, and many wonderful friends.

Dan was a graduate of Newman High School and still has many of his high school classmates as dear friends today. Dan enjoyed helping plan class reunions as it gave him an opportunity to reach out to people he hadn't talked to in a while. He always felt lucky to have friendships that lasted a lifetime. 

Dan's working life was always in floor covering, beginning with helping his father at Henry's Store, Marathon Carpet and Linoleum, while still in high school.  He spent the last 30 years before retirement working for Shaw Industries as a territory rep servicing accounts in central and northern Wisconsin. Dan was a born salesman-he loved to talk, but he really loved to talk about carpet! Many of his colleagues and dealers became personal friends and continued to reach out to Dan throughout his illness. He thanks you all for your prayers and friendship.

When it was time to relax, Dan loved riding his Harley Davidson Road King Classic, golfing with his buddies, and watching live music. Dan found love in performing music early in life, starting with his high school band "The Jents". Many years later several Newman classmates tried to put a band together for a class reunion, and the joy of sharing music with friends turned into a forever bond that became the band BackTrax. He was so proud of the music they performed, and this very special time he was able to enjoy with his band mates. So many great memories.

Dan's favorite place to visit was Fort Meyer's Beach, where Dan and Kim spent 30 years vacationing. He would walk the beach, soak up the sunshine, and find the music.  The last summer of Dan's life you would find him sitting in his lawn chair in the driveway, eyes closed listening to music, feeling the warm healing sun.  We pray for Dan to find an eternity of sunshine and warmth in God's loving arms.

A Celebration of Dan's Life will be held on his birthday, Thursday November 9, 2023, at Brainard Funeral Home-Everest Chapel. Visitation from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM, with prayer service and celebration luncheon to follow.

In lieu of flowers please consider a commemoration donation to the family for a future permanent memorial in Dan's name.
