Daniel “Dan” Lee Jumer

Daniel “Dan” Lee Jumer, 62, of Buffalo, Wyoming peacefully passed away on September 9, 2019 with his 2 children by his side.

He is preceded in death by his parents Lee and Sandy Jumer and his younger brother Nate Jumer. He is survived by his 2 children Anita (Todd) Shelek and Danny (Norma) Jumer and 6 adoring grandchildren Kailee, Andrew, and Nathan Shelek and Megan, Hannah, and Rebekah Jumer. He is also survived by Roxy (Russ Stiles) Jumer and her children Jake (Tonjua) French and Raeanne Riesland and many other nieces and nephews that loved him.

Dan also leaves behind many loved and valued friends and family members from his previous marriage. Dan was a perfectionist with his carpentry and loved working with his hands. He also loved his Harley. Dan was extremely proud of Anita and Danny and his grandchildren and loved them all very much. He reveled in all their successes and would light up when talking about them. He loved spending time with them. His children and grandchildren are very thankful for the time they got to spend with him especially the time they had with him earlier this year.

Dan lived life his way and was definitely one of a kind as anyone that knew him would tell you. One of the many sayings that he was known for seems to resonate with his passing.

“I am who I am, and that’s who I am.”

Arrangements for a celebration of Dan’s life will be announced at a later date.
