MALDEN — God got another Angel.

Danny J. Mauser, 60, of Malden received his wings on Thursday, June 27, 2019, in Aperion Care in Princeton.

Danny was born Sept. 27, 1958, in Ogallala, Neb., to Bernard Charles and Velva Jean (Anderson) Mauser. He graduated from Seward, Neb., High School in 1977. He married Connie Smith.

Danny loved to ride his motorcycle, watch John Wayne movies (any western period), plant his potatoes, spend time with his grandkids, and fishing and pheasant hunting. He also had the pleasure of loving several dogs throughout his life.

Danny grew up in Nebraska and they always had large gardens and canned everything they could. He enjoyed eating rhubarb raw, fried green tomatoes, fried potatoes and hash browns.

He drove a fork lift for 15 years, drove semi for Seward Motor Freight and CR England, moved snow for Berlin Township, ran machines at Mennie’s Machine Shop, powder coated parts for Appleton Electric (EGS) in Nebraska and worked for Mutual of Omaha as a maintenance cleaning supervisor. He worked at Riverfront Machining for eight years, where he ran a punch press, worked on the wash line and was the shipping/receiving clerk for the last 2 to 3 years.

He was a member of the Malden Methodist Church.

His favorite spot to eat was at Sip-N-Snack in Mendota. He loved his chicken.

He is survived by his wife, Connie Mauser of Malden; four daughters, Abigail (Arthur) Batten of San Antonio, Texas, Ashley (Tony) Howell of Omaha, Neb., Randi (Andrew) Gould of Princeton and Bobbi (Darrell) Potter of Lincoln, Neb.; 13 grandchildren; two sisters, Cindy (Tracy Kaspar) Owens of Columbus, Neb., and Christy Dang-Mauser of Norfolk, Neb.; and three pet babies, Arrow, Bea and Dexter.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother-in-law, Tri Dang; an aunt, Linda Seidel; and an uncle, Larry Anderson.

A memorial service will be at 1 p.m. Sunday, July 7, at the Malden Methodist Church.
