| August 9, 2020 1:00 AM

Daniel David Adams (“Danny”), age 75, of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, passed into eternity on Thursday, July 30, 2020.

Danny was born in Coeur d’Alene, on Nov. 6, 1944, to David L. and Lois Amelia (Mickey) Adams. He was the first of nine children. His siblings are Wesley, Georjean (Jerry – deceased) Kuntz, Kathy Garren, Wayne (Leatha), Merriann Irish, Randy (Tammy), Phillip and Becky (Dan) Hart.

Danny lived with his parents in Spirit Lake, Idaho, until 1957, and then the family moved to Post Falls. Growing up, Danny enjoyed teasing (more than he should) his siblings and being part of a large, extended family. Danny attended elementary, junior high and high school in Post Falls. After high school, Danny worked several different jobs and eventually was hired at Kaiser Aluminum, Trentwood plant.

He took a leave of absence from Kaiser in 1968 and entered the Army where he served our country for two years. Danny served in Vietnam, working as a crane operator building roads. He was honorably discharged in August 1970 and returned to work at Kaiser, working a total of 30 years and retiring in 1999.

Danny loved to hunt and he spent many years hunting with his dad, uncles and brothers and always enjoyed a good story around the campfire. In his retirement years, he spent time remodeling the different homes he lived in and took the time to travel all over the United States and Canada, from Washington D.C. to Hawaii and Tahiti and many places in-between.

Danny loved music (Elvis) and dancing, and of course the Seahawks. He thoroughly enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. He was a life-long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he served in many capacities. His favorite service was ward mission leader, working with the missionaries.

Danny is preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his two daughters, Cammie Adams (Daryle) Hewitt and Ashley Adams (Jesse) Hatfield; former spouse, Evelyn Adams; his seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; his siblings; aunts and uncles; and a multitude of cousins.

A viewing will be held from 2-4 p.m. on Wednesday Aug. 12, 2020, at Bell Tower Funeral Home in Post Falls, followed by a graveside memorial at 10 a.m. on Aug. 14, 2020, at Greenwood Cemetery in Spirit Lake, Idaho.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Wounded Warriors Foundation.
