Daniel Eugene Ananias, Ligonier, died Thursday, March 31, 2016.
He was the beloved son of John (Bonnie) Ananias and Nell (Donald) Hipshire.
He was preceded in death by his parents/step parents and his nephew: Adam; and his stepsister: Pam. He was the brother to Nicolas Ananias (Spouse Penny), Valerie Blackburn (Fiancée Dale), and Christopher Ananias. The stepbrother to Joseph Blair, Steven Gene Blair (Spouse Cindy), and Pam. The uncle to Kenny, Adam, Jason, Jane, Jake, Gene Allen, and Angie. Danny’s beloved wolf Shenae and his best doggie friend Sukie passed before him.
He was always the person that would help if you needed it. He was also an excellent mechanic. He served our country as a soldier in the military. He worked as a truck driver and on the line in the RV business. It’s hard to estimate all the people that cared for Danny. It’s a long list.
“Geez o Pete” was one of Danny’s favorite sayings, along with “Happy Camper”, he claimed he coined that phrase. He had the great gift of gab. He tried to do well by people. One of his fine achievements was starting a bicycle shop, which he operated quite well and he had a large inventory of neat bicycles. He was a happy giver, and provided for those less fortunate. Danny got a tattoo in his youth. It was a cross and above, it said “SHINE ON”, with stars shooting out! SHINE ON Danny!
