Daniel W. Large, Sr., age 84, formerly of Colonial Parkway in Saukville, Wisconsin passed away Tuesday, July 12, 2022 at Ascension Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital – Ozaukee in Mequon.
He was born in Milwaukee, WI on May 27, 1938 to John Edward and Ruth Evalina Schuman Large.
On June 27, 1959, Dan married Carol L. Jakubic of Lannon at St. James Catholic Church in Lannon.
A truck driver by trade, Dan drove for many local motor transport companies over the years. He had been a longtime member of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 200 of Milwaukee.
