Daniel E. Ruser

March 28, 1941 — December 6, 2017

Daniel Edwin Ruser was born March 28, 1941, at Hartley Memorial Hospital in Battle Creek, Iowa, the son of Edwin and Evelyn Ruser. He passed away Wednesday, December 6, 2017, at Horn Memorial Hospital in Ida Grove, Iowa, at the age of seventy-six.
Daniel was baptized in Christ April 25, 1943, and confirmed his faith December 22, 1963, at Zion Lutheran Church in Denison, Iowa. He received his education in the Ida Grove School and began his lifelong career of trucking. On March 18, 1961, he married Dorothy Boysen at Zion Lutheran Church by Rev. CW Schmidt in Denison, Iowa. After his retirement from trucking, he happily returned to the road driving cars for Adams Motors. Dan was a human GPS.
His family was very important to him and he was very proud of his wife, daughters and four granddaughters who he affectionately referred to as his “ 4 GEMS.” He later developed an even greater soft spot for his four great-grandchildren. In his youth Dan really enjoyed roller skating and was a whiz on his skates. In his leisure time, he was particularly fond of gardening, fishing, watching western movies and keeping up with the sporting teams his family enjoyed. He especially enjoyed helping Dorothy set up Christmas villages they collected over the years, and his woodworking.
Daniel was preceded in death by his parents; his parents-in-law; one brother, Stan; one sister-in-law; and one brother-in-law. Survivors include: his wife, Dorothy; two daughters, Kelly and her husband, Keith, and Karlon; four granddaughters, Kristy and her husband, Jeff, Jennifer, Tracy and her husband, Steve, and Sara and significant other, Donald; four great-grandchildren, Trenton Jack,Madilynn and Donavin; three sisters-in-law, Lucille, Phyllis, and JoAnn and her husband, LeRoy; other relatives and friends.
