Danial R. Bixby Obituary
Bixby, Danial R.

Danial R. Bixby, age 55, of Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin, passed away Tuesday August 8, 2017 at his residence.

Memorial services for Danial will be held at 11:00 on Thursday August 17, 2017 at Calvary Baptist Church in Wisconsin Rapids. The family will greet relatives and friends on Thursday morning at the church from 10:00 - 11:00 AM. Pastor Jack Austin will officiate the service.

Danial was born on August 6, 1962 in Wisconsin Rapids to the late Daniel and Verla (Blaunt) Bixby. He graduated from Mid-State Technical College in Wisconsin Rapids with an Associate's Degree in Business and Human Resources. Danial married Marjorie "Rocki" Roznovak on May 5, 1995 in Wisconsin Dells. He taught guitar lessons for many years both privately and at Heid Music. Danial was recently rated as a world class guitar player.

Danial had a passion for playing the guitar and loved to teach others how to play. He enjoyed the time spent with all of his students and helped many of his students write and record music. He had a wonderful sense of humor and could start a conversation with anybody. In his earlier years, he enjoyed helping his dad take care of Mount Repose Cemetery in Friendship. Danial and Rocki enjoyed their travels to any place where it was warm, specifically Laughlin, NV, Tucson, AZ and Phoenix, AZ. They also enjoyed watching movies together at home when Dan wasn't playing in a band that weekend. He loved his pet cats, especially his favorite, Gracie Lou.

Danial is survived by his wife of 22 years Marjorie, step-child Jessica (Walter) Weise and sister Dawn Weiss. He is further survived by an aunt and uncle residing in Nekoosa and many other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial in Danial's name will be established at a later date.

Ritchay Funeral Home in Wisconsin Rapids is assisting the family with arrangements.
