Daniel Earl Whiteside

Danny’s life began on November 22, 1949, in Newton. He was the son of Don and Betty R. (Thomas) Whiteside. Danny was a 1967 graduate of Remington High School. He served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam war. Danny was united in marriage to the former Jo Brenner on July 7, 1975, in Marion. He worked for over 30 years as a rural mail carrier. Dan was friendly and outgoing, which is why so many friends enjoyed casual time with him in his garage. He was a jokester and loved pulling pranks. Danny enjoyed coyote and bird hunting as well. He was very good at spoiling his grandchildren and he loved spending time with all of his family. Danny is survived by his wife of 46 years Jo Whiteside of Potwin; his mother Betty R. Whiteside of Potwin; children Brandi (Chris Smith) Garrison of El Dorado, Chris (Mary) Oberst of Potwin and Scott Oberst of Potwin; grandchildren Devan (Mallory) Poffinbarger, Caden Garrison, Jaxon Oberst, Brody Oberst, and Gracee Oberst. Danny passed away surrounded by his family on Saturday July 2, 2022, at his home. He is preceded in death by his father Don. Danny’s family will gather with friends on Tuesday July 5, 2022, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Lamb Funeral Home, Whitewater. His funeral service will be held on Wednesday July 6, 2022, at 11 a.m. at the Potwin Christian Church. Danny will be laid to rest in McGill Cemetery, Potwin in a private family service.
