Daniel P. Gustafson, age 74, of Frederic, Wisconsin, passed away Sunday, March 11, 2018 at St. Croix Regional Medical Center.
Daniel was born December 21, 1943 in St. Paul, Minnesota, the son of John and Adeline Gustafson. He graduated from Frederic High School in 1962. He worked for Hesson's in Luck, WI. He then worked at the Luck Co-op. In 1973 he took a job at Durex Products until he retired.
In 1964 he married Jeanette Peterson. Together they raised one son, Bruce. They purchased an 80 acre farm in Bone Lake Township and they renovated the old farm buildings. In 2013 he sold the farm and moved to the Village of Frederic.
Daniel was passionate about ice fishing. Also for several years in the spring he and Jeanette made maple syrup. They really enjoyed their time together picking up all the broken branches, and their woods looked like a park setting.
After Jeanette passed away March 8, 2004 he made many visits to friends and family and would travel back roads to see lakes, rivers and wildlife.
Daniel is survived by son, Bruce of Frederic; grandson, Nathaniel of Osceola; brother, David of Frederic; sister, Dianne (Dave) Schroeder of Appleton, WI; sister-in-law, Lois Gustafson of Osceola; and many nieces and nephews.
