Daniel Gerald was born on August 28, 1973 in Storm Lake, Iowa to Gerald Raymond and Connie Sue (Frerichs) Wiedenfeld. He lived in Fonda, Iowa until he was a year old, then moved to the current family farm, until he graduated from Cedar Catholic High School in 1991. He then attended Northeast Community College in Norfolk, NE. In 1993 Dan moved back to the family farm and started farming with his dad and helped build it to what it is today. Dan married Angela Lee Lounsbery on August 3, 1996 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Hartington NE.

Dan was member of Holy Trinity Church and the Knights of Columbus in Hartington. He enjoyed helping with the parish garage sales. Dan coached Little League basketball for the City of Hartington for over 20 years. He also enjoyed refereeing local basketball games. In his younger years he enjoyed 4-H and showing steers. Dan loved camping and family vacations as well. Dan enjoyed farming and working with cattle, loved playing music wherever he went, playing cards and board games. He wanted everyone to have fun, especially his boys. There was nothing he wouldn’t do for them. He loved to play cornhole with all of his family and friends and enjoyed making everyone’s experience for the game fun. Dan also loved the 4thof July and would spend weeks preparing to have the best fireworks show. Dan loved his family and friends, but most of all he was proud of his boys and all their accomplishments. Dan had a heart of gold and was an amazing husband, father, and son. He will be greatly missed.
