Born February 14, 1951 in Grand Haven, MI to Emil and Josephine (Arbogast) Bochenek, passed away on May 1, 2017 at the age of 66. Daniel spent most of his life as a carpenter and in building sales. Dan was a collector of many things, was creative, and could make something wonderful out of nothing. He had a quirky sense of humor and he loved the outdoors, fishing, classic cars and most of all spending time with his daughter and grandson.

Daniel was preceded in death by his parents, Josephine (Adam) Lee and Emil Bochenek; and beloved cat, Cowboy. Surviving to cherish his memory are his daughter, Beth Ann (William) Ward; grandson, Noel Joseph Ward; former wife who was always supportive of him, Evelyn Bochenek; brothers, Robert (Marie) Bochenek, Joseph (Marilyn) Bochenek; nephews, Terry (Lisa) Bochenek, Tim (Rebecca) Bochenek, Tyler (Annie) Bochenek; nieces, April (David) Metzmaker and Marcie (Nick) Rex; and numerous cousins.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, those desiring may make contributions to Heartland Hospice, 865 S. Cedar St., Mason, MI 48854. For those wanting to celebrate Dan's life please have a "beverage" of your choice, some Kentucky Fried Chicken and make sure to have a biscuit and REAL butter.
