Daniel Gene Wiesel

April 29, 1951 — November 15, 2021

Daniel Gene WieSel was born April 29th, 1951 to Jack Russell Sr. and Helen Mae (Wood) WieSel in Pickstown, South Dakota. Jack and Helen moved the family to Overland Park, Kansas in the early 60’s. In 1969, Dan graduated from Shawnee Mission South High School, in Kansas. In 1970, he joined the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. Dan was a proud Vietnam War veteran and took great pride in serving his country aboard the U.S.S. Henry B. Wilson. An example of this extreme pride, was when our country was under attack on September 11th, when Dan tried to re-enlist in the Navy. The Naval Recruiting office thanked him for his dedication to the United States but he was too old sign back up. Dan told the recruiter, “Once you take the oath to serve your Commander in Chief and your country you must always stand ready”. He sure loved his country and the flag. After an honorable discharge in 1974, he made his home in Oklahoma. In 1975, fate stepped in by arranging the meeting of Dan and Jimmie. Dan was working in Kansas and Jimmie was in Oklahoma, and after commuting for six months between Kansas and Oklahoma City, Dan decided he needed to make sure Jimmie didn’t get away and they were married at First Baptist Church in Tuttle, Oklahoma on April 16th, 1976. Dan and Jimmie then made their home in Moore, Oklahoma. They welcomed their first daughter Miche’ Dawn in 1977 and their second daughter, Brandi Dan’l in 1980. After getting the girls married off and out from under his wing, he thought his life couldn’t be any fuller. Until he earned the title of Papa in 2014, with the birth of Jackson Roy, to Miche and Roy Weber. His heart got even bigger when Papa squared was earned in 2018 with the birth of Brynlee Dawn to Brandi and Michael Coleman. In 2019, he and Jimmie built their dream house on the land that Jimmie was raised on in Tuttle. On November 15th, after a courageous and valiant fight, Dan was called home to be with his savior in Christ surrounded by his loving family.

Dan is preceded in death by his parents; brother Chuck WieSel Sr; parents in law Norma and Ed Lindsey; brother in law Clay Willis II and nephew Guy Willis III.

Dan is survived by his wife of 45 years, Jimmie; Daughter Miche’ and husband Roy Weber; Daughter Brandi and husband Michael Coleman; grandson Jackson Roy Weber; granddaughter Brynlee Dawn Coleman; sister Kathy and husband Ed Alvord; brother Jack Russell Jr and wife Gayla WieSel; sister in law Delores “Dee” WieSel; sister in law Jeanie (Lindsey) Peters and husband Ken; along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. He will be dearly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.

There are a few very important men that touched Dan’s life, heart, and soul. These men helped shape him into the mountain of a man he became. They are; his step dad Calvin Folkers; father in law Eddie Lindsey; mentor and friend DeWayne “DC” Jones; lifelong friends Steve Martinez, Dee Kelly, David Tolman and the late Craig Hawkins; the shipmates on the “Wilson” and the men of Silver Squadron.
