February 01, 1930 - August 31, 2020


Daniel Thomas Rozman, age 90 ½ years old, died Monday morning, August 31, 2020 at Eastwood Nursing Center in Negaunee where he had been a resident for the past 1 ½ years. He has walked over to the other side and is playing his favorite Big Band Music at the Big Radio Station in the sky.

Daniel was born on February 1, 1930 to George and Etta (Owens) Rozman in Hancock, MI, the eldest of six children. He was a graduate of Hancock High School.

In Daniel's lifetime, he had many occupations including setting bowling pins, working in the woods, a laborer for the Atlas Powder Company, an advertising salesman for a newspaper, auto mechanic, auto mechanics teacher and his most favorite job of all, that of "Disc Jockey" at WDMJ Radio Station in Marquette, and known as "Little Danny Rozman." He played Big Band Music until he was 88 years old!

Daniel was a proud labor union member and twice in his lifetime served as labor union president to two different unions.

Daniel is survived by his daughter and caregiver, Patricia of Marquette; his brothers, Anthony of Florida and Russell and George both of Michigan; sister, Celeste of Florida; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, George and Etta; brother, Robert; and ex-wife, Mary.

A huge thank you goes to the caregivers and staff of Eastwood Nursing Center for their kind, compassionate and respectful care of Daniel. Their dedication to the residents is outstanding.

No services will be held at this time.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Daniel's name to the Activity Fund at Eastwood Nursing Center, 900 Maas St., Negaunee, MI 49866 or UPAWS, PO Box 968, Marquette, MI 49855.


And if I go,
While you're still here...
Know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
--behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
--both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest.
And when you need me,
just whisper my name in your heart,
... I will be there.
