Mason City - Daniel Earl Tresemer was born on Sept. 16, 1951, the son of Richard E. and Ethel Belle (Quinn) Tresemer in Ashland, Kentucky. He was the fourth child of five.

He attended Osage High School, which he left to join the Army before graduation. He honorably served his country from 1969 to 1970 in Vietnam, during which time he was a door gunner for a medi-vac helicopter, a true hero to his family and friends.

For 36 years he was in maintenance and a mill operator at Holcim Cement Plant and worked part time for Fastenal after retiring.

He fought a courageous battle with cancer and exceeded the expectations of doctors, a true fighter.

He left for his eternal home surrounded by family and friends on Friday May 7, 2010 (Vietnam Veterans Day).

He was joined in marriage to Kathy Detmering on Sept. 18, 1971, at the Wesley Methodist Church in Wesley. Together they had two children and enjoyed having a foreign exchange student. This past summer he and Kathy enjoyed baking bread and pies and sold them at the Farmer's Market. Dan enjoyed hunting, fishing, golfing, grilling out for friends and family. He never hesitated to volunteer his time to help others. Dan was a member of Vietnam Veterans Association and VFW and enjoyed serving at various functions.

Dan's family and friends will greatly miss his outgoing, fun-loving but yet stubborn-minded attitude. Dan lived each day to the fullest and loved to party, his grandkids will miss his love, care and most of all his laughter.

Memorial services will be held at 5 p.m. today (Monday, May 10), at Fullerton Funeral Home, 123 Second St. S.E., Mason City. Officiating will be the Rev. Steve Hansen of Grace United Methodist Church, Mason City. Visitation will be from 3 p.m. until service time.

Full military honors will be presented by the Vietnam Veterans of America and the Mason City Memorial Association of VFW and American Legion.

There will not be a burial service, but the family invites everyone to the VFW, 1603 S. Monroe Ave., following all services for a time of fellowship, reflection and sharing.

Those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider memorials to the Vietnam Veterans Association (VVA) in care of his wife Kathy.

Condolences may be shared with the family at www.Fullertonfh.com.

Those thankful in sharing Dan's life include his wife Kathy of 38 years; his two children Brad Tresemer (Carrie), Story City, Kim Ryan (Kit), Mason City; the seven surviving grandchildren, Jordan Brown, Brock and CJ Tresemer, Amanda, Traci, Christopher, and Ali Ryan; his brother Jim (Ann) Tresemer, Omaha, Neb.; and sister Bonnie (Jerry) Kahler, Mason City; a special nephew Matt Miller (Kelly) and family, along with numerous family and friends.
