Daniel Samuel Grossman

July 21, 1946 — November 16, 2023

Phoenix

Our beloved dad, brother, “Papa,” uncle, cousin, and dear friend Daniel Grossman lost his courageous battle with cancer on November 16, 2023. Danny was a long-time resident of Cedarburg, Wisconsin. He enjoyed retirement in the Saddlebrooke Community of Tucson and recently the Clarendale Community of Phoenix, Arizona.

Danny was born in New York City on July 21, 1946. His parents were Sidney and Sara Grossman. He grew up in Whitefish Bay and Fox Point, Wisconsin. Danny graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in secondary education and completed his master’s degree at Marquette University. He taught American History and U.S. Government at John Long Middle School, Grafton for 32 years before retiring in 2001. He was a loving husband to his childhood sweetheart, Sherry, and devoted father to his two daughters, Caren and Stacy.

Danny’s warm smile and positivity were felt by his family and many friends who were fortunate to know him. His greatest joy was spending time with his children and grandchildren. For years, cruises that took Danny and Sherry all over the world brought them a great deal of pleasure. Danny enjoyed buying classic cars and collecting model cars. He loved taking his dogs to the dog park, socializing with neighbors and friends, and watching the dogs play. Trying out new barbecue and hamburger restaurants as well as bakeries was one of his favorite pastimes. Danny was passionate about many things, but none more than sharing his love of world history, the Mizzou Tigers, and the Green Bay Packers. 

Danny is survived by daughters Caren [Patrick] Cherveny and Stacy [Mike] Lovell, grandchildren Alec, Gavin, and Hadley Cherveny, Mia, Aubrey, and Brandon Lovell. He is also survived by his sister Ruthellen Keiser, sister-in-law Marianne Kestenbaum, and nephews Ben Keiser and David Kestenbaum. He was preceded in death by his wife Sherry (Kestenbaum) Grossman, parents Sidney and Sara Grossman, in-laws Jerome and Roslyn Kestenbaum, brother-in-law Lenny Kestenbaum, and nephew Jesse Keiser.

A celebration to honor Danny’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in Daniel’s memory may be made to:  St. Joseph’s Foundation, 124 West Thomas Road, Suite 250
