Daniel D. "Danny" Prag

Daniel D. "Danny" Prag, of Slinger, entered into eternal peace on Wednesday, April 26, 2006 at Aurora Medical Center of Hartford, at the age of 50.

Danny was born June 9, 1955 in Milwaukee, where he was also raised. He attended John Marshall High School and graduated with the class of 1972. He later dedicated his honorable service to the United States Navy during the Vietnam Era. After returning from the service, he settled again in the Milwaukee area where he was a devoted employee at Super Steel. After several years back in Milwaukee, he met his soul mate, Anne Gaustad, and moved to the Slinger area.

Danny was known for being a dedicated worker, patriotic and artistic in many ways. He was very insightful and was born with the beautiful talent of being a writer. His thoughts and words written on paper created a masterpiece. He would also paint to find relaxation and collected various train memorabilia to pass on to his children, whom he cherished. Danny will be especially remembered for giving the grandest of bear hugs.

Those whose lives Danny has forever touched include his loving soul mate, Anne Gaustad of Slinger; his cherished children, Mariah Prag and Keith Gaustad; his dear siblings, Shari (Tom) Prag of Neosho, Charles (Chom Ok) Prag of Milwaukee, and Jeffrey Prag (special friend, Sonya) of Georgia; and two treasured nieces, Chomi and Yung-E Prag. He will also be missed by other special relatives and many dear friends.

Danny was preceded in death by his parents.
