Daniel Lee Laubacher, age 39, passed away unexpectedly and suddenly Tuesday, May 13, 2014. He was born May 16, 1974, the son of Lee and Jacqueline (Hoover) Laubacher. He graduated from Perry High School excelling in band, choir, speech and debate and theater. He was accepted into the Ohio Highway State Patrol Academy in 1998. He graduated from the Academy where he had been employed as a Patrolman for the past 14 years. He worked as a Highway State Patrolman but also touched the lives of many students through his School Intervention Training Outreach Program as well as being part of the Riot Team. He was known affectionately by his fellow troopers, friends and family as 'Troop' and 'Skinny'. He was one of the most intelligent, quick-witted, well spoken human beings you could ever meet. He was known for passing out nicknames to his children and family members. Where he shined the most was making everyone around him warm with laughter and was a master story teller. He was so special and perfect in all ways as a Father, Husband, Son, Brother, Uncle, Son-in-law and Friend. Simply put
he was the 'life of every party and family/friends get together'. He was always there for anyone that needed help whether to fix something or lend a helping hand. There is no substitute or replacement for loss of him in Our Family. His legacy will live on through his children and all of our good memories, stories and the overall positive impact he had in each of our lives. We were truly blessed as he was a temporary gift to us from God. Not that Heaven could lack happiness
Danny sure adds a new element and dimension to humor in Heaven.
