Daniel H. Fritzel

Daniel Harold Fritzel, 78, of Wausau, WI, went home to rest in the loving arms of Jesus on Sunday, October 24, 2021. Dan was born on June 28, 1943, in Iowa Falls, IA to John and Anna Fritzel (Janssen). After graduating high school, he went on to study at DeVry Technical Institute in Chicago and worked in various information technology roles at IBM, Memorex, Emmons, and several local business establishments, eventually founding his own company in 1986, Fritzel’s Business Equipment, in Wausau.

Dan married Dale Peckous on October 7, 1967, in Chicago, IL. They celebrated 54 loving years together. Dan had a strong love of family and he is survived by his wife Dale, their five children; Lori (Jeffrey) Kostecki (Wausau), Dean Fritzel (Los Angeles, CA), Lane Fritzel (Frisco, TX), Darrell (Sehee) Fritzel (Ringle), and Jordan (Paul) Prins (Paris, France), and two grandchildren; Gabrielle and Daniel Fritzel (Ringle). He is preceded in death by his parents, brother Duane, and sister Donna (Nederhoff).

Dan was a man of strong faith and was sure of his relationship with Jesus. He was active in his local church community and always greeted you with a warm smile or hug and a cup of coffee in hand. He encouraged his kids to pursue the path God had before them, and constantly lifted others up in prayer. Dan served in his church as an elder and excelled as a sound technician there for many years.

Dan proudly served his country in the US Army, being stationed at Fort Hood, TX, from November 1964 to November 1966.

Dan and Dale spent many hours together on the road exploring different parts of the country, and he was always ready for the next road trip. A favorite recent highlight was a trip to The Ark Encounter in Kentucky.

Dan was a woodworking craftsman, taking great pride in his detailed handiwork. A lifelong learner, he was rarely caught without a tool or knowledge of how to fix almost anything. He had a habit of disassembling brand new items to make sure the factory had sufficiently lubricated all the moving parts, and in the process, he also learned how to fix it when the inevitable failure would occur.

Dan had a soft spot for God’s creatures great and small as well as the many people he loved, and he will be missed until we are reunited with him in Heaven.

A celebration of life service will be held at Wausau Alliance Church on Saturday, November 13. The visitation will be at 10:00 am with the service following at 11:00 am.

She worked at Marathon Electric for years, sold real estate for a brief period, and cooked and served at The Labor Temple.

When the kids were younger, she always had her camcorder in her hand.

These last couple years she was very proud of her craft projects she would work on and would still be out in her yard weeding her flowers, on nice days, just at a slower pace. Other favorites had been golf, birds, and the wildlife walking through her yard. She was inspirational to us all and made sure she put smiles on our faces with the love in her heart.

Survivors include, her niece, Jody Stevens (Donny) who she proudly helped raise, from a young age after her mom, Caroline passed away. Jody’s children,n Dylan Stevens (Sara) and Ashtin Holz (Jacob) who Elaine often referred to as her Guardian Angel in the later years. Nephew James “Jimmy” Reuter. A special thank you to these above named who took extra time and care this past year delivering all her groceries, medications, waffles, and Cheeto Paws. Elaine had a handful of Godchildren and many other nieces and nephews and their families too numerous to name.

Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings, Gordon Leffel, Irene Havlovick, Margaret Taylor, Adeline Dahm, Lorraine Reuter, Mildred Liebers, Delores Leffel, Caroline Guillaume, Arden Leffel, and Norman Leffel.
