Obituary

Cuba City, Wisconsin

Daniel Flint Greil, 68, of Cuba City, Wisconsin passed away Monday, August 19, 2019, surrounded by his six children, his siblings, and his beloved wife at St. Mary’s Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin. Services will be 12:00 p.m. Friday August 23, 2019, at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Cuba City, with Rev. David Flanagan officiating. Friends may call from 10:45-11:45 a.m. at the church before the service. Casey Funeral Home & Cremation Services is assisting the family.

Although not nearly long enough, Dan lived a life of adventure, love, and laughs. Dan was born on April 16, 1951, to John Alden and Elizabeth Ann (McMaster) Greil. Both John and Elizabeth remarried later in Dan’s childhood and gained two wonderful step parents. Dan’s life truly began when he met the love of his life, Mary Aileen O’Rourke at Illinois State University December 1971 during their junior year. A successful first date at a Redbird’s basketball game eventually led to Dan and Mary’s winter wedding on January 19, 1974.

Over the years, Dan and Mary raised six children and made a few moves before settling in the beautiful countryside of Cuba City, Wisconsin. A born disciplined, hardworking energetic soul, Dan enjoyed a rewarding career in Agricultural Operations Excellence. For fun, Dan loved playing pick-up basketball games with his children, nieces and nephews, and really anyone who would join in. A fierce competitor, these games ended best if he was the winner. Dan also enjoyed all things tennis and if he wasn’t playing, sounds of televised tennis matches could be heard throughout the house nonstop. Dan’s best times were with Mary, his kids and grandchildren, preferably floating on his pontoon boat down the Mississippi. An avid reader and history buff, it wasn’t unusual for Dan to be reading two or three books at a time, all sure to have “war” in the title. Dan also loved taking Mary on dates and the two have likely eaten at every restaurant in the Galena Territories and Dubuque.

Dan did not hold back in sharing that his greatest accomplishment and pride was his 45 year marriage and raising six children who all love each other immensely. All of his children marrying their own soul mates, having their own children and their own successes was the icing on the cake for him. Neither does this fully tell Dan’s story, nor does it end here. His spirit and energy are everywhere and will live on through his beloved family.

He is survived by his loving wife, Mary, and children, Brendan (Martha) Greil, Molly (Bryan) Wallrich, Nancy (Greg) Kurtenbach, Maureen (Brian) Schultz, Flint (Lacey) Greil and Brigid (Eric) Lengermann. He was the very proud grandfather “G-Dog” to 15 grandchildren (Liam, Emma, Annie, Ava, Aidan, Claire, Caleb, Nolan, Gwyn & Gray, Colleen, Eli, Aldan & Isaac, plus baby G scheduled for arrival in January). He is also survived by his father, John, stepmother, Lois, and siblings, Janis (Tom) Keating, Karen (Scott) Bland, and John (Marla) Greil.

Dan was preceded in death four months ago by his beautiful mother, Elizabeth. His stepfather, Peter, passed away a few years ago.

Memorials can be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (https://donate.lls.org/lls/donate) or Hospice of Dubuque (https://hospiceofdubuque.org/cms-view-page.php?page=donate). Our family would like to give a heartfelt thank you to the compassionate, skilled staff in the Medical Intensive Care Unit & the Medical Surgery Unit at St. Mary’s SSM hospital in Madison, Wisconsin.

I remember growing up with Dan, for we are 1st cousins, and our families weren't as big as they are now. We would visit my Aunt Betsy, and Uncle John, when they lived on 55th. I can still picture the house in my mind. I have many wonderful memories. Rest in Peace dear cousin.

Mary and family,
I heard of Dan's death through the HOD grapevine. Although we are out of town for several days, I wanted to send my condolences to all of you. I hope Dan's death was peaceful and I'm sure he was comforted by your presence at his bedside. Now take comfort from each other. My prayers are with you. Sincerely, Barb Zoeller
