Daniel Joseph "Danny" Killian

August 10, 1958 ~ July 31, 2017 (age 58)
Daniel Joseph "Danny" Killian
58, died at 6:39 PM on Monday, July 31, 2017, at his residence in Lima, Ohio.

Daniel was born on August 10, 1958, in Lima, Ohio, to the late George Killian and Norlene (Guthrie) Killian. On September 19, 2007, he married Courtney (Greenup) Killian, who survives.

Danny was employed at the Husky Refinery for 35 years and was a member of the Emergency Response Team. He will be dearly missed by his second family at the refinery. He was a 1976 graduate of Lima Central Catholic High School and continued to support the T-Bird athletic teams. One of his biggest pleasures was the fall football season so he could cheer on The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. He was a member of the YMCA, and past member of the local Knights of Columbus and Elks clubs. He was also known in the local CYO boys and girls basketball league as a referee for the Saturday morning leagues. (Rumor was spreading that a new pair of glasses had been purchased for Danny by the CYO coaches and players for this coming season). He also dished out many an ice cream cone at the Dairy Queen on Allentown Rd. back in the 70's. He was a caring, loving and giving person and will be missed by all of those who had the pleasure of knowing him.

He is survived by his dog and best bud Murphy (Meathead); mother-in-law Judy Greenup of Lima, father-In-law Jim Greenup of Kettering, brother Pat Killian of Lima, sister Beverly (Tim) Carder of Lima, sister, Barbara (Rob) Singer of Columbus, and brother Mike (Dianne) Killian of Columbus, nieces & nephews; Kacy (Ryan) Molloy, Kolby (Alyson) Harruff, Maggie (Octavio) Vega, Jordan Killian, Eric Killian, Brett Killian (Godson), Tobi Moore and Tara Joyce, and eight great nieces & nephews.

The family will receive friends from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Sunday, August 6, 2017 with a Parish Wake at 8:00 PM at Chamberlain-Huckeriede Funeral Home in Lima, Ohio. Feel free to wear the colors you know Danny would want you to wear.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, August 7, 2017 at St. Rose Catholic Church, Lima. Father David M. Ross will officiate.

Interment will be in Gethsemani Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Lima Central Catholic High School Scholarship Fund, 720 S. Cable Rd., Lima, Ohio 45805; in Danny's name.
