Dear CREDO of the Catholic Laity Friends,
It is with great sadness, I tell you Daniel J. “Danny” Moder, 69 loving husband our dear CREDO member, Marie Moder, nee Schroeder, has passed on Monday, August 23, 2021 and entered into rest at his home surrounded by family.
Beloved son of the late Aloysius and Ruth Moder; dearest husband of 48 years to Marie Moder and is survived by her; he was also loving father to Kirsten (Kamron) Ahmad and Kyle (Jennifer) Moder; devoted grandfather to Gianna and Jackson Ahmad; dear brother of James Moder, the late Dennis Moder, and twin sister, Nancy Hartmann. Cherished uncle, cousin, and friend of many.
“Danny” and “Re” met as teenagers through a mutual friend, while she was working at Bettendorf’s and Danny at Walgreens. At the end of their shifts, they would meet and adventure around town in his shiny blue Tempest. He fell for her instantly, and a few weeks into their whirlwind romance, he told her, “Someday, what’s mine will be yours, and what’s yours will be mine.” They were married on August 10, 1973.
Dan’s creative spirit, altruistic nature, and love of cars drew him to a career where he could combine all three, restoring cars to their original beauty, much to the owners’ delight. He had a keen eye for detail and took such pride in his work.
A warm and caring person by nature, inspired by his mother’sdecade-long battle with Alzheimer’s, after retirement, he became a caregiver for Good Samaritan, where he provided compassionate care for those in their time of greatest need.
He will be remembered for his infectious smile, contagious energy, positive outlook on life, can-do attitude, and for the kindness and generosity that he extended to so many.
