Daniel F. Kliora, 81, devout Catholic and dedicated family man, peacefully passed away at Aurora Medical Center in Kenosha WI, surrounded by his loving family on August 26th, 2019.
Born in Waukegan, IL to Constantine and Frances Kliora on January 26th, 1938, the second of five children. Dan briefly studied under the Passionist Order with the intent of possibly becoming a Passionist Missionary. He went on to pursue several different careers before becoming a mail carrier for the United States Postal Service, where he retired after 15 years.
Dan belonged to St Anne Catholic Church in Pleasant Prairie, WI. He enjoyed playing piano, writing, traveling, meeting new people, and gambling from time to time, but he was most happy spending time with his family. He will be remembered for his genuine caring personality, his quick wit and his sense of humor.

In addition to his parents, Dan was preceded in death by a brother, Constantine “Nick” Kliora, and a sister Barbara Large.
Dan was a friendly guy who liked a good laugh and had a big heart for others. He will be greatly missed by those who loved him, and all who knew him.
Dan’s family would like to thank the staff at the Addison of Pleasant Prairie Memory Care Unit as well as the staff at Aurora Medical Center for making his last moments on this earth comfortable.
