Superintendent Danielson

We are extremely saddened with the news of the passing of Village Superintendent Chris Danielson.

No one ever expects it. You don’t know where to begin or what to do.

When one says there are no words, there really aren’t. All we know is this: he was a great employee, father, son, brother, uncle, and much, much more. He is definitely going to be missed by MANY.

Most are still trying to process this, including myself. It’s a back and forth almost never-ending battle. As I sit here trying to write this on behalf of our Village, there is one thing that stands out and deserves to be brought to light: We have a community here. A community that has stepped up, as they always have. It was definitely witnessed today, and it says a lot.

We are thankful for this community and for those who have stepped up – you know who you are.

We are thankful for the challenges Chris endured for our Village. Whether it was to keep the power on, clear the roads, keep our water safe, and a very long list of other responsibilities. It takes dedication, that’s for sure.

We also want to extend our deepest condolences to Chris’s family during this difficult time. Our thoughts are with them as they navigate this loss. We ask that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers as well. Penny – we got you.

We are thankful for the opportunity to have known and worked with Chris.

Thank you, Chris. We will navigate this together.
