Okeechobee - Daniel Willis left this world unexpectedly on Aug. 6, 2018. He was a loving and devoted father, son, brother, grandson, friend, and husband. He was passionate about his State of Florida Park Service life and his extended family and friends. He worked for the Park Service for 13 years, most recently as Park Manager at Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park in Okeechobee where he also lived with his children. He was enthusiastic about his music, fire management and safety, and especially his children.
He is survived by his three loving children, Riley, Ragen, and Rorie; the love of his life, Erin, all of Okeechobee; devoted parents, Robert and Terri Willis, of Apopka, Fla.; loving sisters, Sara Fackler (Teddy), of Orlando, Fla., and Karen Willis, of Titusville, Fla.; devoted grandparents, Howard and Barbara Humburg, of St. Johns, Fla; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Daniel's love of life, smiling face, and generous personality will be remembered by family and friends at a Catholic service on Aug. 25, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. at Annunciation Catholic Church in Altamonte Springs, Fla. followed by a "Celebration of His Life" gathering at Wekiva Springs State Park youth camp in Apopka, Fla.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Daniel's name to the Florida Park Service Ranger Association @ https://fpsaa.org/JAMES-COOK-RELIEF-FUND
