Daniel R. Razo, 69, of Alliance, Nebraska passed away at North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley, CO on September 18, 2021. He was born on January 7,1952 in Alliance Nebraska to Jake and Marguriete (Freeman) Razo.
Dan graduated from Alliance High School with the class of 1970 and later in life attended Western Nebraska Community College in Scottsbluff, Nebraska where he earned his ASE certification in automotive repair.
Dan was married to the love of his life Cathy Liggett for 51 wonderful years.
Dan enjoyed fishing, gardening, watching Cornhusker and Chicago Bears football, restoring cars, lifting weights, drag racing, and most of all spending time with his family.
Out of high school, Dan worked for the Alliance Times Herald before spending most of his career as a conductor on the BNSF railroad. Although he retired, he never really stopped working. Whether it was at his home in Alliance or his lake home in Lemoyne, Dan loved to stay busy. He loved to care for his garden, do yardwork, work in the garage, and above all play with his grandchildren. Dan truly was active all the days of his life and loved to interact with those closest to him. He had a big, boisterous personality with the best sense of humor. His jovial spirit, jokes, and good-natured teasing will be sorely missed.
He is survived by his wife, Cathy Razo of Alliance, his daughter, Stacey (Dennis) Hegemann of Prescott, Wisconsin; his daughter, Amy (Kenny) Pohlman of Ogallala, NE; his son, Tyson (Megan) Razo of Cheyenne, WY; and his daughter, Tiffany (Ethan) Mehne of Cheyenne, WY, grandchildren; Dalton and Jacob Hegemann of Prescott, WI; Savannah Newman of Ogallala, NE; Sebastian and Olivia Razo of Cheyenne, WY; Mya and Ava Mehne of Cheyenne, WY; a great-grandchild, Siennah Newman of Ogallala, NE as well as his sister, Linda Coupens; aunt Judy (Pete) Taylor all of Alliance, NE and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents of Alliance, NE, an infant daughter, an infant granddaughter, and an infant grandson.
The family will host a Celebration of Life in honor and appreciation for Dan at a later date. Cards can be sent to Cathy’s home in Alliance.
