Danny Eric Rueckert

August 18, 1955 – April 3, 2021

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Danny Eric Rueckert after a long and courageous battle with cancer.  Danny passed away peacefully on Saturday April 3rd at Tudor House Personal Care Home in Selkirk Manitoba.


Left to cherish his memory are his children Stacey (David) and Scott (Toni) and his beloved furry grandchildren Felony, Diesel, Griffin and Winston.  Brother Ron (Debbie), sister Erika (Hank) and sister-in-law Angela.  As well as many nieces and nephews and friends.


Danny was predeceased by his parents Eric and Mary Rueckert and his brother Reinhard Henkel.


Danny was born in Winnipeg and grew up in Elmwood.  Danny worked a long and rewarding career as a machinist working at several places throughout his career.  The final place that he worked at was Franklin Enterprises.  Danny was a very loving and giving father and never asked for anything in return.  He loved making his grand dogs cheese toast that he would feed to them every time he would come over.  He also loved to sneak the dogs scraps when he thought that no one was looking.  He also loved to play with his grand cats Griffin and Winston.  He enjoyed giving them treats, throwing their toys and watching them in their catio. 


In the summer time Danny enjoyed sitting in his backyard or tinkering in his garage.  Danny also loved to go goose hunting in the fall.  This past fall hunting season dad wanted so badly to go goose hunting but his body would not allow him to.  Now I am confident as I hear the big Canada’s returning from the south that Dad is walking the happy hunting grounds in the sky.


We love you so much Dad.


Thank you very much to the staff at Tudor House Personal Care Home.  You made Dad’s last months as comfortable as could be.
