James Daniel (Danny) Lawnichak, 70, born July 16, 1951, passed away peacefully Tuesday, June 21, 2022. Danny was born to James and Delores Lawnichak in Flat Rock, Michigan. After Delores passed away suddenly, James moved himself and his two young children, Danny and David, to Sparr, Michigan where James met and married Roberta (mom) Robinson. Danny resided in Sparr for most of his life before moving to the U.P. area.
Danny taught us all the meaning of strength, courage, and a positive attitude. No matter what life threw at Danny, he accepted it with true grace and his faith in God never waivered. His sense of humor, sometimes as corny as it was, always kept us laughing. He loved to make people laugh. Danny was always there to lend a helping hand, no matter the task. You could always count on Dan. Danny never had a harsh or mean thing to say about anyone which is an example for us all. He was loved and will be truly missed. We know that Danny is at peace and in Heaven with all his loved ones that passed before him.
Danny is preceded in death by his parents, James and Roberta "Bobbi" Lawnichak; brother, David Lawnichak; and sister Sheri (Lawnichak) Chipley. Surviving Danny are his brothers, Mike (Barb) Lawnichak, Hal (Anita) Lawnichak; and sisters, Robin Lawnichak, Kelly (Bruce) Lademan, and Heather Holloman. Danny had many nieces and nephews that loved him very much.
A small, intimate family memorial will be held at a later date. Danny will be buried next to James and Roberta in Mackinaw City.
