Daniel R. Purcell Jr.


SAULT STE MARIE — Daniel R. Purcell Jr., a loving husband, father and grandfather, was unexpectedly called home on October 24, 2021.

Daniel is survived by his beloved wife, Cheryl Lynn Purcell; daughter, Keri (Eric) Wagonecht of Lower Michigan; sister, Peggy; six grandchildren, Ellie, Harvey, Isabelle, Mary, Sage and Colton; and his dogs Hallie and Roony.

Dan was born to Daniel Sr. and Dolores (Woznick) Purcell on March 10, 1956, in Gladwin, Mich. After receiving both a physiology and economics degree, Dan began building his life, but life wouldn’t be complete until 2012, when he met and eventually married his devoted wife, Cheryl Lynn Bernard.

Always was an avid outdoorsman, Daniel enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, boating, riding the side-by-side, and of course, his Harleys. Daniel was also a devoted man of God, whom will be missed by all who knew him.

Daniel joins his parents in the eternal slumber. In lieu of flowers, any donations to the Delta County Animal Shelter would be welcomed and appreciated.
