Danny Delaney

December 24, 1939 — June 9, 2021

Delaney, Danny Eugene, age 81, of Casper passed away on Wednesday, June 9, 2021 of natural causes.  Born in Beloit, Kansas in 1939, Danny was a graduate of Oxford High School in Oxford, Nebraska in 1958. He served in the 82nd Airborne Division of the U.S. Army from 1963  to 1965.

In 1967 he married his wife of 54 years, Leann Rose Bowers. Danny took a chance on his future by first attending tech school to obtain a heavy equipment operator’s license and then moving his family to Casper in 1976. He retired from a career as a coal miner at Glenrock Coal in 1998. Danny was an outdoor person. He preferred to work outdoors and to generally be outdoors as much as possible.

He loved all kinds of animals and could often be found on the trails and riverbanks of Casper feeding the wild animals the appropriate duck/bird/squirrel chow. Danny was a homebody other than visiting his daughter’s families in Arizona and Colorado, but he did travel on some extended trips to enjoy nature, first on a horseback only fishing trip into the depths of Yellowstone, and later visited Alaska. Danny was a proponent of higher education and very proud of his two daughters, both of his sons-in-law and all four of his grandchildren. His main goal in life was always to make sure his family was taken care of.

He was preceded in death by his parents Gene and Erminie Delaney and siblings Barry and Darlene. Danny is survived by his wife Leann Delaney; oldest daughter Lisa Kranz, son-in-law Brian and grandchildren Brennan and Delaney; youngest daughter Erika Delaney Lew, son-in-law Hung and grandsons Quinn and Crispin. At Danny's request, there will not be a memorial service. His family will miss him very much.

Arrangements are entrusted to the care of Bustard & Jacoby Funeral Home, 600 CY Avenue, Casper, WY 82601.
