It is with great sadness, but also rejoicing, that we say good bye to Daniel Owen Ferris, life-long resident of Caledonia. 

After many years battling cancer, covid over-took him on December 30, 2021. Daniel was a very talented self-taught wood turner who loved making things for friends.

He is preceded in death by his father, Clair William Ferris of Dowling, and his mother Maxine Phyllis Brown Ferris of Dutton, as well as his sister Bonnie and niece Erin. Sister in law, Joyce Dent (Sam) McClintock

He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 44 years, Colinda Dent Ferris and their very special exchange student, Rodger Smith and his family in Australia.  Rodger became the son of Daniel's heart and was much loved, as he is by his American Mom.  Daniel will also be survived by His brother in law Dan and Phebe Dent, David and Carol Dent of Georgia and Sam McClintock of Missouri and Larry and Maxine Dent of Caledonia he will also be greatly missed by many nieces and nephews.
