Daniel Eugene Messer Daniel "Danny" Eugene Messer went to his Lord on March 6, 2018, after a short battle with cancer.

He has many, many lifelong friends. Danny had a lifelong career in the construction industry. His success and skill level led him to be a steel studs foreman for many different large construction companys. Danny's hobbies included being an avid Harley Davidson rider. He recently rode across the U.S. and back and many treks in between. He enjoyed hunting since a boy and had too many memories to count at Pozo Deer Camp with his Pozo family. He was actively involved with his daughter's softball teams, as both were awesome pitchers for Atascadero High School. He cherished his prized possession, a beautiful blue classic Firebird he inherited from his father. Danny was blessed with sobriety for the last 14 years. Danny is survived by his wife, Pamela Messer; daughters: Vanessa Lei Messer Buckley and husband Jerad, and Heather Dawn Messer Schroeder and husband Chris. He was blessed with a beautiful granddaughter, Tipton Buckley; his stepchildren: Amanda Davis and Jessie Davis; three sisters: Lori Messer Filipponi, Vicci Messer and Randi Messer; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

We are so sorry to learn of your father's passing. I saw Danny at work many times in the past few years and he always had a smile and some good words to share. It was wonderful to see him happy and doing well. Please give our condolences to his wife and the entire Messer family, with whom we share so many memories from long ago.
Love, Kathleen, and Jayne and Rebecca
