Daniel A. Weingate, age 38, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Thursday, July 5, 2018. He was born April 23, 1980 at St. Mary’s Hospital.
Dan obtained his GED through the Big Rapids Schools and proceeded with his education and his desire for the Culinary Arts through the Secchia Institute for Culinary Education through GRCC. Dan was the recipient of different awards for his creativity through the culinary arts and that creativity and talent was also present in his ability to draw and sketch. He also enjoyed designing tattoos and among the ones he had, one of his most special to him was the one honoring his maternal grandmother, Patricia Kelly.
Dan was a person that could laugh and talk with you for hours, and he loved to share all his latest recipe creations and talk about his son that he was so proud of. He was a man that yearned for forgiveness, love, friendship and family. He will be truly missed.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Charles Weingate; Lawrence Kelly Sr. and Patricia Kelly.
Dan is survived by his father; Anthony (Cindy) Weingate, mother, Debra Cook; son, Jaxon Weingate; Felicia, mother of Jaxon Weingate; grandmother, Rita Weingate; brother, James (Jennifer) Weingate; sister, Kelly (John) Kammenzind; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
