Daniel Micah Kendall, born March 19, 1977 in Jacksonville, Arkansas to Dennis and Irene Kendall died Friday July 31, 2020 at home in Rockwall at the age of 43 after a year long courageous battle with colon cancer. Dan was a devoted husband to Jessica for 13 years and wonderful father to Asher. His family was the love of his life. He was steadfast in his commitment as a follower of Jesus Christ, and his faith was apparent to all who knew him. Dan served as a firefighter with the Duncanville Fire Department after attending Garland High School class of 95. He promoted from the rank of Firefighter/Paramedic to Engineer and served for 12 years prior to being diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Dan also owned and operated Firehouse Real Estate. Dan married his high school sweetheart on October 6th, 2007.

Dan was a warrior. He leaves behind a position that could never be filled in the hearts and minds of the people he worked with. He fought daily, hourly, by the minute until his race was done, and he never lost hope or faith. Dan was known for his quick wit, his sense of humor, and his strength until the very end. Dan loved music and pop culture – his artist recollection and movie punch lines rivaled the very best. Dan used every platform he was given to point people towards Christ. He continually thought of others first and himself last. He will forever be remembered for his kind words, gentle spirit, and warrior mentality. Dan will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and firefighter brother and sisters.

Dan is survived by his Wife, Jessica, and his son, Asher. His father, Dennis, and stepmother, Shirley; brother, and sister-in-law, Bryan and Natalie Kendall and their son Nicholas; Dan’s father and mother in law Paul and Sydnee Bertucci. Dan is preceded in death by his mother Irene Kendall and his grandparents.

Funeral service is being held Thursday, August 6 at 2:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church Rockwall. Located at 610 S. Goliad St, Rockwall, TX 75087. Dan and his family request that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Stronghold Ministry, The Colbert Project, and Say Yes 2 Hope, in loving memory of Dan Kendall.
