Daniel E. Litmer

May 26, 1931 - July 24, 2018

Daniel E. Litmer, age 87 of Enochsburg, died Tuesday, July 24, 2018, at The Waters of Batesville.
Born May 26, 1931, in Decatur County, Indiana, he is the son of Cecelia (Nee: Volk) and Leo Litmer. He married Carol Fisher October 10, 1959, at St. John's Church in Enochsburg.
He was a steelworker for Federal-Mogul 30 years as well as a member of the Batesville V.F.W. Post #3183, the Batesville Eagles Aerie #1130, the Batesville Knights of Columbus Council #1461 and St. Catherine of Sienna Church in Enochsburg.
Although Dan worked in the factory, his family said farming was his true love. He had a small acreage he took care of and also helped a neighbor with their ground. He had several antique tractors, but an Oliver was his favorite. He often attended or participated in tractor pulls, tractor shows, rode in parades and for many years was part of Greensburg's Power of Past Show. Another hobby he enjoyed was collecting antique clocks. Dan loved animals and, according to his family, was a jokester who liked to tease people.
He is survived by his wife Carol; sons Scott (Elena) and Chris (Kimberly) Litmer, all of Enochsburg; and two grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, he is also preceded in death by his son William Litmer; sister Mary Meyer; and brothers James, Andrew and Joseph Litmer.
Visitation is Saturday, July 28, from 9-11 a.m. at St. Catherine of Sienna Church in Enochsburg. Funeral services follow at 11:30 a.m. with Rev. Bill Ehalt officiating. Burial will be in the church cemetery with military rites conducted by the Batesville V.F.W. Post #3183 and the Prell-Bland American Legion Post #271.
The family requests memorials to the New Point Volunteer Fire Department. Weigel Funeral Home (www.weigelfh.com) is in charge of arrangements.
