Daniel Anthony Zimmermann was born June 22, 1949 in Little Falls, MN to Leo and Florence (Kempenich) Zimmermann. He attended and graduated from Little Falls Community High School. He enlisted in the United States Army on September 13, 1967 at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Daniel was honorably discharged on September 11, 1970 at Fort Stewart, Georgia. He served his country as a helicopter mechanic during the Vietnam War. After his honorable discharge, he returned to Little Falls. He was united in marriage to Carolyn Whitehead on September 11, 1971 in Little Falls. They moved to Missouri where he worked as a roofer. The couple had ten children and later divorced. Daniel moved back to Little Falls in the later part of his life and resided at the farm until his death. Daniel was a person who was kind and genuine to all he met. His laughter was contagious, his hand shake firm and his heart open. Daniel enjoyed the presence of others and their joy. Daniels greatest accumulations were moments of happiness and an awareness of Gods Blessings which were manifested in his work and play.
