Daniel "Dan" Steven Williamson

May 13, 1971 — January 3, 2024

Elcho

Daniel "Dan" Steven Williamson, devoted husband and loving father, peacefully passed away on January 3, 2024, surrounded by his beloved family. 

Daniel was born on May 13, 1971, in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, to his proud parents, LaVern and Katherine Williamson. As a young boy, he developed a deep appreciation for the great outdoors, reveling in activities such as ATV riding, snowmobiling, and hunting. These passions stayed with him throughout his life, becoming an integral part of his identity.

Dan's remarkable work ethic and commitment shone through in his chosen profession; he served as a dedicated DOT Safety Coordinator in the transportation industry. His diligence and knowledge were unmatched, leaving an indelible mark on his colleagues and peers.

Beyond his professional pursuits, Dan was a man of many interests. He possessed an unwavering love for adventure and thrills, enjoying the freedom of the open road on his beloved Harley. Whether spending time with friends or family, he embraced every moment with passion and unwavering enthusiasm.

In addition to his vibrant personality, Dan was known for his kind-hearted and compassionate nature. He was a true altruist, consistently offering a lending hand to anyone in need. His involvement in the Mosinee and Elcho Fire Departments truly showcased his commitment to safeguarding the well-being of his community. Dan wholeheartedly believed in making a difference, one act of kindness at a time.

Left to mourn his loss and cherish his memory are his devoted wife, Nicole "Nicki" Williamson, who stood by his side through thick and thin; his children, Danielle and her soon-to-be-born son, Cashe Williamson, Tiffany (Tyler Albrecht and husky, Akela), and Lance (Ali Skorie) and our loyal lab, Duke; parents, LaVern and Katherine Williamson; siblings, Scott (Erin) Williamson and their 6 children and 5 grandchildren, and Roxanne (Jeff) Fleenor and their 3 children and 1 grandchild. He is further survived by his parents-in-law, Gary and Maureen Leindecker; and brother-in-law, Travis (Becky) Leindecker and their son, Kian. Their grief is shared by countless friends, extended family members, and community acquaintances, all of whom were touched by Daniel's unwavering friendship and genuine warmth. Dan is preceded in death by his grandparents, Lawrence and Mildred Andreas and Roy Williamson and Evelyn Lotharius.

A celebration of Daniel's remarkable life will be held Monday, January 8, 2024, at 3:00 pm at Helke Funeral Home, 302 Spruce Street, Wausau. Visitation will be from 10:00 am until the time of service. Dan will be laid to rest at 12:00 noon on Tuesday, January 9, 2024, at Elcho Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to Mosinee Fire Department are appreciated.

Our family extends our deep gratitude to Dan's boss and friend, Jeff Wilke and his friend, Tom Salzman, for their friendship and loyalty. And to Dr. Chris Peterson for his compassion and the care he provided to Dan.

Dan's extraordinary presence will be profoundly missed by all those who were fortunate enough to have known him. As we mourn his passing, let us also rejoice in the remarkable legacy he leaves behind.
