I served in the Army.
On Friday, September 16th, 2022, Daniel P. von Seggern, loving husband and father, passed away at age fifty-five at Methodist Fremont Health.

Born February 28, 1967 in Fremont to Dale and Janice 'Klitzke' von Seggern, Dan was raised in North Hooper and attended Logan View High School before enlisting in the U.S. Army as part of the 1012th U.S. Army Reserve Unit. Dan served as a Calvary Scout during Operation Desert Storm and then as 92A Logistics Management Specialist, retiring after 22 years of service as a First Sergeant. Following his first deployment, Dan married the love of his life Lori Sawtelle on October 15, 1994. He served two additional deployments in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Throughout his civilian life, Dan worked for his Brother Terry at TVS Electronics, Omaha Correctional Center, and most recently he was the parts manager at Dillon Brothers Harley Davidson. Dan was known by family and friends as the handiest man around, spending his free time helping everyone and anyone in any way he could.

Dan is survived by his loving wife, Lori, as well as his children Alexis (Evan) Alexa, Drew (Lauren Hoffmann) von Seggern, Hunter von Seggern, Emily (Andrew) Siems, granddaughter Hazel Siems, brother Terry (Nancy) von Seggern, sister Roxanne (Ron) Meyer, sister-in-law Sharon von Seggern, father-in-law and mother-in-law Don and Sharon Sawtelle, brothers-in-law Dan (Lisa) Sawtelle and Brian (Melanie) Sawtelle, many nieces and nephews, and other family, to include the brothers and sisters he served with. He was preceded in death by his parents, Janice and Dale, nephew Nick Meyer, brother Darrel von Seggern, and sister Tammy Overton.

The funeral will be held on Thursday, September 22, 2022 at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Hooper at 10:30am. Burial with Military Honors will follow in the Hooper Cemetery.

    Doug and I send our sympathy to all of you....Lori and family, Terry and family, Roxanne and family. My heart hurts. I am glad that we were able to see Dan and all of you at Uncle Dale's funeral. There is no doubt in my mind that my mom, his Aunt Adelaide, was there to welcome him. I can just hear her say.....Danny Paul!

    Love, Karen and Doug

    Our deepest sympathies to Lori and family and friends for your loss. He was a fun cousin and one you could count on for any sort of adventure or story. He enjoyed life and was always ready to share a laugh. He was proud of his military service but even prouder of his family and friends. Dan will be sorely missed by all. God bless.
