Daniel Haag, Sr. of Washougal passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, May 3 at his home. Danny was born in Vancouver, on November 24, 1955, the eighth of nine children, to Howard and Evelyn Haag of Washougal.
He was preceded in death by his parents and older brother LuVerne Haag.
Danny is survived by daughter Jennifer, sons Shawn and Daniel Jr., and his beloved grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by his siblings, LaVonne Horton, Judy Smith, Suzanne Watts, Fred, Ray, Stan and Jim Haag, and over 60 nieces and nephews.
Danny graduated from Washougal High School and retired from Haag & Shaw Excavating in Camas. He looked forward to going to Montana to visit his son, Daniel, Jr. every summer. He enjoyed many trips to his brother’s place at the beach and spending time with family and friends. Danny loved going to the family home on Hood Canal where he enjoyed crabbing, shrimping, kayaking and making the best eggs. He also liked to go to his brother’s home in Mazatlan where he was known to frequent the “Gus Gus Bar”, and he also loved hanging out at hunting camp with his brothers, extended family and friends. Danny was quite the handyman and could fix anything. The family kept him busy with projects and in between projects he liked to go to Smead’s or Big Foot and drink beer with his friends and family. Danny affected the lives of many and will be lovingly missed by all.
His life will be celebrated on Saturday, May 13 at the Camas/Washougal Wildlife League @ 811 SE Leadbetter Rd. in Camas from 1pm to 4pm.
