Daniel L. Sikorski
Dan Leo Sikorski, 80, died Oct 18, 2019 at his home in Lincoln, NE. He was born Aug 29, 1939 in Breckenridge, Minnesota and grew up in Fairmount, North Dakota. His pride and joy was time spent as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division of the US Army.
Dan was a newspaper man during most of his working years so it fits that he was a man of many stories. He was full of life which he spread to his grandchildren when they came to visit. He loved his golfing years, shuffleboard and pool years, watching and keeping track of Nebraska Husker players and games, taking trips to Minnesota and North Dakota to visit relatives and friends. Dan will be missed by all who knew him well.
Dan is survived by his life companion of many years, Nancy Miller, and his two sons, Scott Sikorski and Jeff (Jennifer) Sikorski and their daughter Hope. He is also survived by Nancy’s daughter, Anne (Michael) Sinclair and sons Patrick (Tricia) and Bill (Sarah) Miller and their eleven grandchildren combined. He was preceded in death by his parents Lloyd and Tillie (Beeler) Sikorski, sisters Vonnie (Sy) Wawers and Arlene (Cy) Schroeder and brothers Chet, Dick, Orrin and Larry Sikorski.
An open house was at Aspen Cremation Service, 4822 Cleveland Ave., Lincoln, Nebraska on Monday, November 4th from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm to honor Dan’s life. Memorials are preferred in lieu of flowers to any pulmonary research center or charity of choice.

Nancy, Scott, Jeff and Family:
We shall and already do miss Uncle Dan. He brought such joy and laughter to every life he touched. We’ll really miss his emails too. Loved all the updates he shared with us!
He will be really missed! He was such a caring man! We loved him dearly! 💕
Our prayers are going out to all of you!
Nancy, I am thinking of you and your children and grandchildren as they get used to the changes. There will be many things that remind you of him as you move forward. Know that Jim and I express our deepest sympathies. Peace and Love from Jim and Barb Lofquist
Dan was a great guy. I met him in my home town of North Platte, Nebraska. Later in life he would end up helping me run a mattress store in Downtown Lincoln. He was a mentor and a friend. He loved to debate politics with me, and we kept in touch over the last 11 years. Dan always offered intelligent advise, and I will always miss that from him. I will also miss knowing that he is not around to talk to anymore. He would often put the best interest of others above his own, and was always fair. Rest in peace my friend!
Jeff,our thoughts and prayers are with you and all of your family in this time of grief. From all of us at the Arrow Cabinet Gallery.
