Danny L. (Dan) Crain, age 68 died on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison due to heart complications. He was born on May 27, 1949 in Springfield, TN to James and Emojean (Inman) Crain. He was the oldest of 5 children. Dan moved to Wisconsin to attend the Diesel Driving School where he met his future wife. He married Mary Tuschen on March 17, 1973 in Sun Prairie.
He is survived by his wife of 45 years, his beloved dog, Rin VI and their kids-their horses, Sara, Shiloh, Sundance, Cody, Dixie and Jessie; 2 bothers, Wayne (Kay) Crain of Springfield, TN, and Randy (Angela) Crain of White House, TN; 2 sisters Donna (Charles) Bradley, and Karen (Jeff) Benton all of Springfield, TN; brothers-in-law Ronald and Dennis Tuschen of Sun Prairie; sister-in-law, Kathy Tuschen, of Sun Prairie; his favorite nephew Dale (Dawn) Tuschen of Marshall; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Dan worked in the trucking industry his entire career. He was employed by Diesel Driving School, Gary Quandt Trucking and for the last 24 years employed by Transwood Inc.
Dan was an exceptionally handy man, there wasn't anything he couldn't fix or build. He built many buildings and repaired more on their farm. If anything or any piece of equipment needed fixing just call Dan and it was fixed. He loved tinkering with trucks and cars and tolerated showing horses with Mary. Complained about horse shows but couldn't wait to tell the guys at work how he had done. He showed horses for many years and won many World and Reserve titles and a tremendous amount of awards within the state and nationally with horses that we had raised. He especially liked working with the baby horses that we bred and raised.
He liked to vacation, especially in the western United States. He greatly enjoyed the family outings to Las Vegas with Ronnie, Kathy and Dennie. Riding with his dog in his truck was his favorite past time. He was just a good, hard working man.
More than a husband and a friend, he was a "buddy". He will be greatly missed by Mary, Rin and their kids.
A Memorial Visitation will be held at 11a.m. to 3p.m. on Saturday, March 31, 2018 at Tuschen-Newcomer Funeral Home, 302 Columbus St., Sun Prairie
