Daniel Cattanach Obituary

Daniel J. Cattanach, age 74, of Marshfield, Wisconsin, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, surrounded by loved ones at House of the Dove, Marshfield, Wisconsin, after a courageous battle with peritoneal mesothelioma cancer.

His service will be held at Cornerstone Community Church, Marshfield, Wisconsin, at 11 am on Monday, November 13, 2023, with Senior Pastor Andy Kvernen officiating.  Friends and family are invited to a meal at Cornerstone Church following the service.  Burial will take place at Hillside Cemetery in Marshfield, Wisconsin at 1:30 pm.  Visitation will be held at the Hansen-Schilling Funeral Home 1010 East Veterans Parkway, Marshfield, on Sunday, November 12, from 4 pm to 7 pm.

Dan was born on July 3, 1949, the oldest child of Lyle and Maxine Cattanach.  He was raised on a Lindsey, Wisconsin area farm, graduating from Marshfield High School in 1968.  Dan married his high school sweetheart, Deborah (Goetz), on July 20, 1968, in Marshfield, Wisconsin, the love of his life for 55 years.  Dan worked for Weyerhaeuser/Marshfield DoorSystems for 47 years, retiring in 2015.  He loved country and bluegrass music and taught himself to play several instruments.  He loved watching old Westerns and playing cards with family.  He grew a strong Christian faith over the years and relied on God’s strength to overcome personal struggles.  He helped many as a quiet champion for the “underdog”.

Dan is lovingly survived by his children: Scott (Amy) Cattanach, Wausau, Wisconsin, Michelle (Dave) Hopperdietzel, Pardeeville, Wisconsin, Melanie (Jon) Saalsaa, Spencer, Wisconsin, and Curtis (Tracie) Cattanach, Orlando, Florida; nine grandchildren: Emily, Jacob, Rachel, Ethan, Ava, Isaac, Evan, Holden, Isla; his two sisters, Sharon (Bob) Conjurske, Colleen (Richard) Propp, and brother Tim Cattanach, and numerous nephews, nieces, relatives, and friends.  Dan was preceded in death by his parents.

Dan will be remembered for the love he displayed as a faithful provider for his wife and children and for the compassion he had for others. He will be greatly missed by family and friends.
