Danny Eugene Abbott, age 69, died Saturday August 5, 2023 at his home surrounded by
his loving family and care givers from St. Croix Hospice.
Danny was born in Beloit WI on October 10, 1953 to Robert and Barbara (Bunde) Abbott.
Danny was a hard worker his whole life; staring with Granny Cheese in Friendship WI,
then working as a lumberjack/hauler in the pulping industry and finally as a porter/floater
for Burger King.
Danny was a family man, and on October 8, 1988 he was joined in marriage with the love
of his life, Tina Marie Callender. Danny also loved his Lord and started each day with his
Bible readings. He was a selfless man who would give you the shirt off his back. He
especially loved when then grandkids would come visit and spend time at grandpa’s house
cause that meant he could grill barbecue wings for everyone and it had to be Sweet Baby
Rays along with fresh vegetables from his own gardens; both vegetables mostly but some
flowers like geraniums that Danny and Tina tended to together. Tina and Danny also did
plastic canvas crafts together as well. His favorite escapes were Fishing first, then Hunting
and then Camping and if you got an invite to go fishing in the morning you best be packed
and ready to go the night before and set your alarm or you just might miss that early
morning car ride.
Surviving Danny are his wife Tina; his son Chris Callender-Abbott; his grandchildren
Gabriella Abbott-Quail, C.J. Callender, Trevor Callender, Analise DeGrace, Ebony
Murray, Justin Moore and A.J. Callender-Koch; his siblings Robert Jr, (Karen) Abbott,
Terry (Barb) Abbott, Geraldine Conkol, Brenda Abbott, Linda (Francis) Laver and
Timothy Abbott and brother-in law Nelson Rolon as well as countless nieces, nephews,
cousins and friends.
Danny was preceded in death by his parents, his in-laws Harold (Cecelia Stukel) Callender
his son Danny Jr. “DJ” Abbott and daughter Melissa Abbott; his sister Judy Rolon; sister-
in-law Sarah Abbott; brother-in law Arnie Conkol; and nephew Mark Abbott.
