Obituary

The world lost a wonderful man on Tuesday.  A wonderful husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend, coach.  Danny L. Miner, 70, of Moline, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, at Genesis Medical Center, Illini Campus, Silvis, Illinois.

 

Visitation is Sunday, May 22nd from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home and Crematory, 3030 7th Ave, Rock Island.

 

A memorial service will be held Monday, May 23rd at 11:00 AM at Wheelan-Pressly, Rock Island.  Burial will be at the Rock Island National Cemetery, Rock Island Arsenal.

 

Danny was born February 2nd, 1952 in Tacoma, Washington to Frank and Kathryn (Pickett) Miner.  He was raised in Rainier, Washington until his family moved to Tooele, Utah when he was 10 years old.  He graduated from Tooele High School in 1970.  After attending the University of Utah for one year, he entered the United States Air Force, 1971-1975.  Following his honorable discharge, he graduated from Weber State College in Ogden, Utah.  Shortly after that he began his career working for the U.S. Government.  He worked at the VA Hospital in Salt Lake City and later transferred to Tooele Army Depot. He retired from the Rock Island Arsenal after 34 years as an Ammunition Logistics Manager.

 

In Tooele, he met and fell in love with Stefani Green.  They moved back to the Midwest together and were married on June 20th, 1987 in Davenport, Iowa. They built a beautiful life together and raised their two children in Moline – his daughter and son were Danny’s pride and joy.  He participated either by coaching or cheering in their every athletic endeavor. 

 

He is survived by his wife Stefani, daughter Lindsey (Joe) Orf, St. Louis; son Garrett, Chicago; mother Tina Miner, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and two sisters Linda (Tom) Corwin of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Alice Tate of Tucson, Arizona; and numerous nieces, nephews, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.  

 

Danny was an accomplished bowler, an avid record collector, and a devoted family man. He could often be found walking his pup Izzy or cheering on the 49ers or Utes.  Danny was quick to recall any sports trivia fact, music lyric, or the date a photo was taken.

 

He was preceded in death by his father and a nephew, Rusty Tate.

 

Memorials may be sent to Quad Cities Honor Flight or Kings Harvest Pet Rescue in Davenport, IA.
