Daniel Raymond Christman, 60, of 9710 County Rd. 153, East Liberty, Ohio, went home to be with the Lord on January 3, 2022 following a serious illness. He was born on August 20, 1961 to Louis Christman and Mary (Monnin) Christman of Anna, Ohio. His mother preceded him in death.

Dan married the love of his life, Carolyn Jane Christman, on April 23, 1988. She survives along with four beautiful children, Daniel Christman, Jr. of Sidney, Zachary (Jessica) Christman of Sidney, Emily (Kyle) Diehl of Columbus, and Audrey Christman. Other relatives include his father, Louis, three brothers, David (Tawana) Christman of Greenville, NC, Gerald (Linda) Christman, of Wapakoneta, and Bill (Joyce) Christman of Sidney, and two sisters, Cindy Bensman of Anna, and Karen (Mike) Kerrigan of Anna, also a granddaughter, Sadie Christman, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Dan was a graduate of Anna High School, Class of 1979 and earned an Associate Degree from Edison State Community College, and also attended Bowling Green State University. He worked in customer service for many years at Systemax Manufacturing in Fletcher as a certified A+ computer technician and at the Holiday Inn front desk in Sidney prior to that.

He had a passion for all the Cleveland sports teams, but especially Cleveland Browns football. He also painted, collected, and enjoyed the hobby of miniature wargaming, passing that on to his sons. He loved his family and supporting his children in their school activities through the years and was a family game night enthusiast and expert player at Trivial Pursuit.

Dan was an active member at Middleburg United Methodist Church working on the missions and outreach ministry team and participating in and often teaching Sunday school. He had a deep faith and love for the Lord and was an inspiration to many.

Carolyn, I so can see Dan walking and laughing with Jesus! He was so kind to me as I worked two weeks at the front desk at the Holiday Inn. He saved me more than once, and could have yelled, but didn’t! He just would fix my mistakes and go on! Probably the longest two weeks of his Holiday Inn career!! Love to you and your family!
