Daniel Ray “Dan” Pumfery, 65, of New Buffalo, passed away on Friday, Jan. 21, 2022, at his home. Arrangements have been entrusted to Sommerfeld Chapel of New Buffalo, MI. A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Those wishing to leave an online condolence may do so at Memorial contributions can be made to the Samaritan Fund in the care of Water’s Edge Church, New Buffalo, MI. The family is currently accepting home visitations - please call in advance.

Dan was born on Jan. 26, 1956, in South Haven to Richard & Georgia (Mitchell) Pumfery. He graduated from Watervliet High School in 1975.

Dan served his country and proudly enlisted in the United States Marine Corps serving until 1979. On December 1, 1990, Dan married Ronee Burian in La Porte, IN.

Dan worked as a technician for Diebold, Inc. for more than 35 years and then at QSI, Inc. prior to his retirement in 2020. He was always known as being a “MacGyver.” Whether it was building a garage from the ground up, building computers, or maintaining his rental properties, he was a jack-of-all-trades at anything he would set his mind to. He was a member of Water’s Edge Church, where he enjoyed running the tech booth for the praise and worship team. He would never turn down a good steak with a post-dinner Coke.

Dan is survived by his mother, Georgia Nagle (Pumfery) of New Buffalo; his wife of 31 years, Ronee; children, Danielle Pumfery of Grand Rapids and Cameron Pumfery of St. Paul, MN; and siblings, Sharon (Jerry) Rush of Coloma, Janice Pumfery of Merryville, TN, and Kim Pumfery of St. Joseph.

He was preceded in death by his father, Richard Pumfery.
