Richard “Dick” Danger, of Ham Lake, formerly of Mora, passed away on Thursday, February 2, 2012 at the Camden Care Center in Minneapolis. He was 64 years old.

Richard Harlan Danger was born on July 17, 1947 in Mora, Minnesota to parents William and Violet (Westin) Danger. Dick attended Mora High School and graduated in 1965. After graduation, Dick enlisted in the United States Army where he served overseas during the Vietnam War. After his discharge from the military, Dick returned to Minnesota where he began working as an Equipment Operator for Highway Heavy and a member of the Local 49er’s Union. Dick worked for Minnesota State Curb & Gutter until he retired in 2008.

On November 25, 1971, Dick was united in marriage to Barbara Johnson at the St. Stephen’s Lutheran Church of Braham. To this union, two daughters were born. Together the family lived in Minneapolis before building their family home in Ham Lake in 1979.

Dick enjoyed spending his free time at home. He liked watching the birds and battling with the squirrels. In earlier years he spent time motorcycling and ice fishing during the winter months. He was also an active member of the Ham Lake VFW. He and Barb enjoyed several trips to California to visit family. Dick will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

Dick is preceded in death by his parents.

He is survived by his wife Barbara of Ham Lake, daughters Stacie (Eric) Danger-Weston of Minneapolis, and Stephanie (Ted Sonquist) Danger of Minneapolis; grandchildren Tyler Weston, Maia Weston, Julian Danger-Sonquist, and Victor Danger-Sonquist; sister Janet (Joe) Miller of Peyton, CO; many other relatives and friends.

    Barb, Really sorry to hear about Dick. It has been so, so many years since I have seen you guys. I remember him being blonde and looking kinda like a surfer dude. And that he had sparkling eyes and a rather deep, but very nice sounding voice. My thoughts are with you. Kindest regards, Kathy

    Barb, Stacie and Stephanie.
    Dick was a great man. I have always considered him my second dad. He will be watching over all of you so proudly. Each time I talked to him he talked about his grandbabies and what each of you were doing. He was so proud and he will always be. I love you all and I will pray each day for the peace you need during this time.

    Barb and family,
    Dick and I met when we were7, we bonded then. We played together got in trouble together and grew up together. After high school the years of family, work and interests made it harder to keep in touch (it shouldn’t have but did). That doesn’t make it any easier to lose a dear friend.
    My only regret is not being able to say goodbye to my friend.

    Barb and family,
    I will miss Dick as a fond friend and as well as a Viet Nam veteran where we actually hooked up in a land far far away in 1968. He is up there riding that old “snorton” Norton motorcycle again!
    Thanks Dick for some of the best memories that I will ever have!! RIP old friend!!!
