Daniel Alan Sowinski, 51, Wausau, died July 2, 2021 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.
Daniel was born April 9, 1970 in Wausau to Kathy (Thebeau) and the late Daryld Sowinski.
He was a man that grew older, but never outgrew his mischievous inner child. Daniel’s boisterous laughter would fill a room and his unique sense of humor never failed to bring smiles to the faces around him. For all of his fun-loving side, Daniel was also a man dedicated to his daughter and dearly loved and cared for his mother. His favorite pastime was music, playing his guitar and even writing some of his own original music. In his cousin, Michelle’s words, “Dan-O was soooooo very smart and free spirited. He lived how he wanted to and did not apologize.”
Daniel is survived by his mother, Kathy Thebeau; daughter, Rachel Sowinski; brother, Kris (Tanya) Sowinski; aunt, Sunny Ledford; cousins, Michelle and Ken Ledford; brother-from-another-mother, Brian Sullivan; adopted aunt, Jeanne Brandl and extended family and friends.
There will be a celebration of Daniel’s life on Saturday, July 17 at Yellow Banks Park shelter beginning at 1:00 PM. Friends are welcome to gather for an afternoon of remembering Daniel.
