Daniel (Danny) J. Fossey, 56, of Lee’s Summit, MO passed away on August 7th, 2021, from complications due to COVID-19 after a hard-fought battle at Lee’s Summit Medical Center.
Visitation will take place on Thursday, August 12th, from 6-8 pm at Langsford Funeral Home, 115 SW 3rdSt., Lee’s Summit, MO 64063. Funeral services will be held on Friday, August 13th at 11 am. Burial will immediately follow at Floral Hills East Memorial Gardens, in Lee’s Summit, MO.
Danny was born in Houston, TX on April 24th, 1965, eventually moving to Grandview, MO in 1975. He was a 1983 graduate of Ruskin High School and attended Longview College. He married Elizabeth (nee Parker) on December 19th, 2009, in Chicago, IL, and they have been partners in crime ever since, enjoying vacations and time spent with family and friends. Danny worked at several local companies but spent the last 20 years working for Honeywell FM&T as a welder, inspector and weld technician over his career there and formed many friendships along the way.
Danny enjoyed any activity that got him outdoors, and especially enjoyed fishing, taking up fly fishing in recent years and pursuing the elusive Muskie on the annual fishing trip to northern Minnesota. Danny lived for his kids and could be found at all their school or sporting events, whether baseball, lacrosse, volleyball or flag football, and provided the occasional coaching tips on the way home. Competitive kickball games and wiffle ball tournaments were standard cul-de-sac activities when everyone was together for holidays or birthdays. Danny was known for his signature dance moves, his infectious smile, his love of Chevy trucks, and his sense of humor. Danny had a hard time sitting still for too long, and he could often be found working on projects around the house, in the yard, or on his 1989 Blazer or watching the Royals and the Chiefs.
Danny is preceded in death by his beloved dad Dave Fossey.
Danny is survived by his wife Elizabeth; his children Dayton Fossey, Ambyr Fossey (Kyle), Devyn Fossey and Aiden Fossey; his sister Debbie Fitzwater (Eddie); his mom Judy (nee Rogers) Fossey; and several adoring nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles, and lifelong friends.
The family would like to extend our sincere thanks to the incredible staff at Lee’s Summit Medical Center for their support and compassion while Danny was in their care. Several were angels disguised as nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists and staff
