Daniel John Lennon, 69, of Palm Bay, Florida, passed away on April 17, 2024. He was born on March 26, 1955, in Battle Creek, Michigan. Dan, known for his twisted but hilarious sense of humor, was a loving husband, generous father, smitten grandfather, and a loyal friend. His deep spiritual convictions influenced all aspects of his life. Dan leaves behind his wife, Emily, his brother David (Pam), his sister Kathy Martin (Michael), and his mother-in-law Georgena Way. Dan and Emily have two children Nicholas (Denean) and Jana Chapman (Shawn), ten beloved grandchildren Devin, Payden, Dylan, Skylar, Reagan, Taylor, Aryana, Anderson, Rhett, Eleanor, two great grandchildren Gracelynn and Brooklynn, and a plethora (or as Dan would say a buttload) of nieces, nephews, and extended family. He was preceded in death by his father Martin, mother Donna, grandparents Edgar Cheney, Winifred Cheney, Earl Lennon, and Iva Lennon, as well as his father-in-law Lew Way.

Dan attended Kellogg Elementary, Gull Lake High School, and ITT for higher education. He had a fulfilling career in the quality control department at Harris Electronics, where his signature is on microchips in satellites orbiting in space. Dan was affectionately known as Papa or Pops, loved Jesus, sharing a good cup of coffee, guns, Harleys, fishing, Elvis, giving a good hug, telling stories, teasing his grandkids, theological conversations with his son, singing to and dancing with his daughter, making people laugh, walking on the beach, and being a best friend to his wife.

Dan was a long-time member of the Church of the Nazarene. He found solace and community in his faith. His heart’s desire was to know God deeply and not neglect the Scripture (Psalm 119:15-16). While Dan’s passing was unexpected, his family takes comfort that he is resting in the loving arms of the Lord and greeted by all those who went before him. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
