Obituary

Kevin Brian Danilson 52, passed peacefully at home surrounded by his family on November 21, 2021. He was born on June 20, 1969, and lived his entire life in Grimes and the surrounding area.

Kevin was a loving husband, father, son, brother, and uncle. He was a passionate Cubs fan, a long-time supporter of Iowa Hawkeyes football, and the single most competitive member of his family. Kevin loved watching his kids play sports and spending time with his family. From his earliest years growing up on Harvey Street playing card games with his sisters to poker night with his buddies or his family he was happiest when he was on the winning side of life. Kevin loved racing, gambling, animals, and cooking…not necessarily in that order. He enjoyed vacationing with Jenny and the kids and has even asked that he continue his travels with them as they vacation in the future - he specifically requested a high roller trip to Las Vegas, Florida in the Spring and wants a trip to Alaska to be on the agenda soon.

Competitive, stubborn, fierce, and emotional, Kevin fought his battle with cancer for three and a half long years. Rather than let it win he chose to walk away and end treatment to spend quality time with his family and friends.
Kevin is survived by his wife Jenny and kids Delaney, Brady, and Danika; mother Ginger Harrison, sisters Deb Danilson, Cheryl Burkhart (Chris), and Amanda Harrison (D'Angelo); step-brothers Mike and Gary Russell, and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and wonderful family friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family would request a memorial contribution be made that the family can use in Kevin’s name.
