Daniel A. Kern Sr., age 91, of Mountain Home passed away at his home on July 21, 2019. A memorial service will be held at a later date. Cremation is under the care of Rost Funeral Home, McMurtrey Chapel.

Daniel was born on March 16, 1928 in Chicago, Illinois to Albert and Florence (Stromski) Kern. After high school, Daniel graduated from Lane Technical School in Chicago and eventually worked for the UPS as a delivery man and as a route man for a diaper service.

Daniel married Vivian Wallace and from this marriage, they were bless with a son Timothy. They later divorced. Years later, he married Janet James and they were blessed with 2 more sons Kevin and Daniel Jr. Together, with their 3 boys, they moved to Phoenix. The family would go somewhere every weekend while living in Arizona. Later, they moved to Boise. A few years later, they divorced. Daniel married Evelyn eventually settling in Mountain Home. They were married till her passing.

Daniel was funny and always made you laugh with the stories he told. He liked to spend his time sitting by the window and watch the squirrels trying to get to the bird feeder and yell at them when they made it to the feeder. He liked listening to Rush Limbaugh every day and sometimes he would lay on the couch reading the newspaper and the dog would jump on his legs and lay down with him. He was a generous person and would give advice when needed. He enjoyed Fishing and going to the Casino and play Black 7 slot machines. He was stubborn and as tuff as nails and he taught his kids that trait!

He will be missed tremendously!

Daniel is survived by his 3 sons Tim (Rebecca) of Phoenix, Kevin (Deborah) and Daniel Jr. (Lucy) all of Caldwell, brother Butch, sisters Joan (Jim) Adams and Linda Westerman, grandchildren; Jeremiah, Allison and Eva Kern and Jonathan Babirak as well as a great grandson Jonathan Babirak Jr.

Daniel is preceded in death by both his parents, his wife Evelyn and his brother Jerry.

We would like to thank Rost Funeral Home for all of their compassion.
