Danny A. Freund, age 44, of Howard Lake, passed away after a motorcycle accident Thursday, May 27, 2010, at 6:59 a.m.
He was born March 31, 1966, in Duluth, to Barb and David Freund.
Danny was a loving and devoted father who brought smiles, laughter, and love to all that he touched. A day never went by that he wasn’t kind to a stranger, made a new friend, or helped those in need.
He enjoyed spending time with his family, long Harley rides, and hours of poker. Danny was a prankster, known for his quick wit and sense of humor, “Oh Really” and “Shalom to you.”
Danny was preceded in death by his beloved grandmother, Bette Berg; and grandfathers Byron Berg and Rudy Freund.
He is survived by his fiancée, Sabrina, and their daughter, Berkley; mother Barb and William Jensen; father David Freund; stepfather Larry Hoium; siblings Kim Freund, Cavic M. and Jennifer Hannnison, Kristine and Greg DeLuca, and Dustin Hoium; future parents-in-law John and Linda Maki; sister-in-law Merissa and Joel Stone; nieces and nephews Arabella, Max, Chad, Tylar, and Logan; godchildren Caden, Raegen, and Rylie; special aunt Blyth Brookman; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.
