Daniel Robert
Polley

Polley, Daniel Robert. Sunday, February 10, 2013, age 64. Special Companion of Mary Rutenbeck. Previous husband to Barbara Gates (Pierce). Father of Daniel (Melissa), Daina, and Patrick.

“Dan, Dan the Market Man” was an attendant at the West Allis Farmer’s Market for ten years. Dan was a giving soul, always willing to help, and he took care of the farmers as though they were his family. He was also an animal lover – adopting lost and homeless animals throughout his life. He will be dearly missed by G-Dog, and Stella, Luna, and Sampson will surely be waiting to greet him.

In lieu of memorials, donations to the family appreciated.

Sundays were fun at the Market Place because of Sheriff Dan. If you were lucky to know him, you liked him.

He had a big heart & always wore a smile. He would talk fondly of Mary & his family and never had a bad word to say about anyone. A wise man & fun to be around…

Ironically, one of the last times myself & a few other vendors from the flea market decided to keep saying “We Love Ya Dan”
It seemed a little off at the time, but now it makes so much sense. He did know that we appreciated all that he did.

Nobody really likes to say good bye to a dear friend…
So let’s just say “See you on the other side” You will be deeply missed by many Dan, and no one can ever take your place!

Thanks for all of the wonderful memories… We were all blessed for having known you.

Dan was my brother in-law-in-law. My brother was married to his sister. Dan and I were classmates at NBHS. We had music appreciation class together one year. He was bored one day during class and decided to dump out my big red corduroy purse and help me clean it out. Things went rolling everywhere. Needless to say, the teacher was not impressed! Dan had a special twinkle in his eye that always brought a smile to everyone who knew him.
