Obituary for Danny Makowsky

Danny  Makowsky
Danny Allen Makowsky, 71, of Waco went to be with the Lord on October 1, 2017. Funeral services will be held at Trinity Lutheran Church in Waco at 10 am Wednesday, October 4. Private burial will follow.

Visitation will be held from 5 to 7 pm on Tuesday, October 3 at OakCrest Funeral Home.

Dan was born November 3, 1945 to Herman and Louise Makowsky. He attended Baylor University, where he received his law degree in 1970. He practiced law for many years with his friend, Dogie Giles.

He was a devoted and loving father and a faithful friend. Dan was a longtime member of Trinity Lutheran Church. He loved Trinity, and served his church in many different ways over the years. Those who knew him will remember his love of music, memorabilia, and the Atlanta Braves. He entertained his friends and family with his incredible memory for trivia and stats, especially pertaining to baseball and oldies.

Known for feats of strange athletic prowess, he was a champion volleyball player, and once bowled 186 left-handed. Dan liked to do things his own way. He is responsible for the Waco City Softball League’s rule that all players must wear shoes. He once chased an escaped fugitive through the streets of downtown Waco and tackled him.

Dan is survived by his children, Reid and Rachel; his sisters, Nettie and Judy; and his brother, Milton and wife, Earlene.
