Daniel "Dan" Henning

December 1, 1964 — May 14, 2022

Sheboygan Falls

Daniel “Dan” J. Henning Sr., age 57, of Sheboygan Falls, passed away on May 14, 2022, at his home in Sheboygan Falls.

Dan was born on December 1, 1964, in Sheboygan, to John and Patricia (Behrens) Henning. He graduated from Howards Grove High School with the class of 1984. Dan had a love for farming that started at a very early age. He grew up on his family’s beef farm and later worked on several other farms throughout his life. He started Henning Livestock Trucking in 1994, picking up cattle and bringing them to stockyards and other area farms. Most recently, Dan worked as a delivery driver at Superior Lawn & Garden in Kohler, WI. Dan enjoyed helping his children on their farms, driving machinery and filling in as needed.

Dan loved to fish on his pontoon boat with his wife, Lisa. He was a collector of Ford toy tractors (and anything else with the Ford logo) and went to toy shows all over the country with his son, Dan Jr., and uncle, John. He had a sweet tooth and especially loved warm cookies fresh out of the oven.

Dan is survived by his children, Dan (Kayla) Henning Jr., Nicole (Ryan) Ernst, Amanda (Ashley) Pitts, and Katey (fiancé, Gavin Lynch) Burns; wife, Lisa James; mother, Patricia Henning; siblings, Tim Henning and Rebecca (Ben Zalewski) Henning; uncles, John (Gail) Behrens II and Roy Henning; aunts, Cathy (Jerry) Fenner and Bonnie Rousse; nieces and nephews; sisters-in-law, Amy (Jim) Vande Hey and Denise (John) Roberts; brother-in-law, Charlie (Melissa) Johnson; his beloved dog, Buddy; and other relatives and friends.

Dan was preceded in death by his father, John Henning; infant brother, David Paul Henning; stepson, David Pitts; paternal grandparents, Milford and Irene (Kuether) Henning; and maternal grandparents, John and Betty (Berg) Behrens; aunt, Helen Henning; and other relatives and friends.

A Funeral Service will be held for Dan at 7:00 PM on Monday, May 23, 2022, at Zimmer-Westview Funeral and Cremation Care Center (W2132 Garton Road, Sheboygan, WI 53083) with Pastor DuWayne Hanke officiating.  A public visitation will be held prior to the service at the funeral home from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM.
