Daniel Bruce Burger’s soul passed into eternal life on the afternoon of March 30, 2022. He was surrounded by those who loved him. He was born the third in line to Marvin and Martha Burger on December 29, 1958 in Goshen, IN. After graduating from Goshen High School in 1977, he attended A&P School in Broomfield, CO. His love of aviation carried him through a multi-faceted career in the field, beginning as an airplane mechanic for Combs Gates and most recently, sharing his passion, and jokes, with students as an adjunct professor at Vincennes University Aviation Technology Center. With the spare time he wasn’t using to tinker in his shop or find new treasures at garage sales or Goodwill Outlet, he volunteered on the Clayton Liberty Township Public Library board and Sheltering Wings. To the world, he was a great man. To his kids, he was the greatest man. Dan’s proudest accomplishment was the success of his three children. He spoke often about how much pleasure it gave him that his children grew up to become productive members of society. Dan is survived by his kids, Nick Burger of Denver, Carly Burger of Plainfield, and Kristen Burger of Indianapolis. He is also survived by his mother, Martha (Simmons) Burger, brother, Steve Burger, sister, Greta (Marc Forbes) Burger, former wife Cathy (Fettig) Burger, and a special friend Kris Kiel. He was preceded in death by his father, Marvin J. Burger and his brother, Roger Burger. Services for Dan’s celebration of life will be April 9th at West Newton Friends Meeting in Mooresville (6800 S. Mooresville Road). Visitation will be from 12pm to 3pm, with a service to follow. Memorial contributions can be made to the Clayton Liberty Township Public Library or to Sheltering Wings in Danville. Arrangements by Hampton-Gentry Funeral Home, Plainfield.
