Daniel J. Fuchs, 63, entered into eternal rest March 17, 2023, surrounded by his loving family. 

Daniel was born in Teaneck, New Jersey,  April 19, 1959, to Alfred and Joyce (Roche) Fuchs. Daniel graduated summa cum laude from Chowan College, Murfreesboro, North Carolina, with an associate degree in science and the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, Syracuse, New York, with a bachelor’s degree in science. 

Soon after his graduation, Daniel married the love of his life, Laura. The couple founded an upscale furniture consignment store, No Place Like Home, in Boulder, Colorado. After selling this business, Daniel and Laura moved to Minnesota, where Daniel graduated from St. Cloud State University with a master’s degree in science. As a part of earning this degree, Daniel participated in the 2002 Triceratops Dig in Marmarth, North Dakota, as one of 35 individuals who attended this first onsite evacuation of its type held on the Grasslands. For the next 20 years, Daniel taught physical science and biology at Melrose Public High School in Melrose. 

Daniel enjoyed traveling, carpentry, outdoor walks, time with his family and studying the Bible. 

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of 40 years, Laura Fuchs; daughter Elisha Fuchs; five siblings; multiple in-laws; and countless brothers- and sisters-in-Christ. 

Daniel was preceded in death by his parents, Alfred and Joyce Fuchs; and two of his brothers, John and Peter Fuchs. 

A memorial service in Daniel’s honor will be held in central Minnesota in September 2023.
