Daniel 'Danny' Joseph Sokolowski, 69, Rochester, a former Kokomo resident, passed away at his home at 6:20 p.m. on Sunday, May 5, 2013.

He was born April 22, 1944, in Chicago, Ill., the son of Anthony and Therese (Matysiak) Sokolowski.

On Sept. 17, 1988, in Kokomo, he married Dianne Roesener, who survives. 

Danny was a 1963 graduate of Chicago Vocational High School. He was a tool and die maker at Delco Electronics, retiring in September 1999, after 35 years of service. He was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, the Moose Lodge No. 1107, Rochester, the VFW Post 1343, Rochester, the Eagles Lodge No. 852, Rochester, and the UAW Local 292, Kokomo. 

Danny enjoyed weekly movie night with his beloved wife, fishing for crappie and blue gill, bowling, playing poker, woodworking, billiards, boating, leisure book reading, crossword puzzles, watching the Chicago Bears, cookouts and fish fries with family and friends, sharing time with his buddies, Jim Jansen and Lee Loy, just some good ol' boys never meaning no harm and enjoying a cigar. 

Danny is survived by his wife Dianne, of Rochester; children, Theresa Mileham (Shaun), of Attica, Karen Sokolowski (Joshua Walls), of South Whitley, Martin Sokolowski (Denna Neale), of Sebastopol, Calif., and Laura Cohee (Jeremy), of Kokomo; stepchildren, Troy Burger (Jianel Acevedo), of Kokomo, and Julie Thomison (Michael), of Kokomo; 16 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and his constant companion, Freddie, who was always by his side. 

Danny was preceded in death by his father, Anthony Sokolowski; mother, Therese Matysiak Sokolowski Anderson; two brothers, Richard Sokolowski and Ronald Sokolowski; and his dogs Kaiser Von, Sullivan and Gracie. 

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 2:30 p.m. on Friday, May 10, 2013, at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church, Kokomo.

Friends may visit with the family at Shirley & Stout Funeral Home and Crematory, Kokomo, from 4-8 p.m. on Thursday, May 9, 2013, with a scripture service at 8 p.m.

Burial will follow the funeral at Sunset Memory Garden in Kokomo.
