Daniel “Danny” A. Nixon, Jr.

Daniel “Danny” A. Nixon, Jr., of Naples, Fla., died on Monday, October 19, 2015, after many courageous battles with his health.

Danny was born in Chicago to Daniel A. and Elizabeth A. (Pendleton) on August 6, 1935. He spent eight years in the Coast Guard followed by 15 years of Fire Service on the Chicago F.D., Lombard F.D., and retired from the Elmhurst F.D. in 1983. He moved to Naples, Fla., with his wife, Jeanne (Johnson), where they have resided for the last almost 30 years.

Always very active in the community, Danny joined many clubs. He was an avid fisherman, loved any sports, music, and playing cards. After being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, he enjoyed volunteering for them for many years. He joined many organizations and worked part-time until he needed to move to the Carlisle Assisted Living three and one-half years ago. His years at the Carlisle gave him such love, care, peace, and made every day a reason to live and enjoy. Being involved with the assisted and independent living residents, he became a very busy, contented man with many “best” friends.

Besides his wife Jeanne, Danny leaves behind him a sister, Judy Kamaryt (James); two sons, Daniel A. III “Skip” (Judy, deceased) (Jan, significant other), Dennis A. (deceased) (Julie), David A. (Patricia); a stepson Joe Parrillo; a daughter Elizabeth “Betty” Nixon Clark (Randy); and two stepdaughters Vicki (Jeff) Bacidore and Diane Kinsler. He is also survived by ten grandchildren, Christopher (deceased), Ann, Pamela, Craig, Callie, Zach, Anthony, Nick, Brian, and Steven; one very special great-granddaughter, Penelope; and many nieces and nephews, including a godson, J.D. Kamaryt.

There will be a private ceremony at the Carlisle Assisted Living Home with his “family.” Information provided by the family.
