Daniel David Rumbaugh arrived February 6th, 1989 to David and Lauri Rumbaugh. Dan attended Valley View and Mesa Middle School making great academic impressions and lasting friendships. He was previously employed by Target where he also made true connections with co-workers and customers alike.
Dan had recently spent his time expanding his mind with mathematics, philosophy and exploring his soul purpose by reconnecting with friends and family. Much time was spent devoted to his art and real true love, which was music. As he shared his many talents and vast knowledge with those around him, he undoubtedly made this world a better place. He was charming, charismatic and vibrant with an understanding of life well beyond his years, if not beyond this realm completely. Although he never attended college, his intellectual capacity was nothing short of profound. Stoic and balanced, yet full of fun with an irreverent sense of humor, Daniel was truly a rare find.
Daniel was loving and kind, courageous and brave. He was a man with vision, passion and insight and only wished to share his understanding and knowledge to assist others on this path we share. To know our Daniel was simply to love him. He will be missed forevermore but held close in the hearts he touched. He accomplished his desired purpose here to help others and we will honor his life until we meet our true hero once again.
Daniel was preceded in death by his father, David Rumbaugh, grandparents Kathy and Benton Rumbaugh, and cousin Jeremy Rumbaugh.
Daniel is survived by his mother, Lauri Foster; Brothers Joshua Kenney, Matthew Kenney and Adam Kenney; sister Emily Gerry; nephews Jacob Kenney, Hayden Kenney, Noah Gibson and niece Caitlin Kenney; Aunts Cheryl Rumbaugh, Rebecca Bowman (David), Beth Burroughs (Steve) and many beloved cousins.
