Walter Douglas Danielson, the son of Kenneth and Loretta (Blizek) Danielson, was born May 26, 1948, in Waseca. Wally attended vocational school specializing in small engine repair. For most of his career, Wally owned and operated his own small engine repair business. He also worked briefly at Heselton Construction in Faribault and several years for Waseca Rental.

Many people said he was the most kind, thoughtful, considerate man. Always thinking of others rather than himself; always willing to help everyone. He was very skilled and was able to build a home or overhaul a car. Wally truly enjoyed spending time outdoors, caring for his enormous flower and vegetable garden.

He is survived by his four siblings, Rita (Ed) Sheimo of Austin, Tom Danielson of Faribault, Pat (Dick) Wilker of Rochester and Jerry Danielson (LaVonne Erickson) of Faribault; many nieces and nephews; and friends and neighbors.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and a brother, Mark in infancy.
