2016 September 11: Danny Rasmussen

In Memory Of

Danny Rasmussen, age 65, of Miles City

June 4, 1951 – September 11, 2016

Danny F. Rasmussen, age 65 of Miles City, passed away on September 11, 2016, after a long battle with cancer.


Danny was born on June 4, 1951 in Moorhead, MN and soon moved to Nashua MT.


His parents divorced and he moved to Bozeman with his brother, sister, mother and step father. After several years of being subjected to parents of acute alcoholism, he moved to Chinook to live with his father.


At the completion of high school he was drafted in the U.S. Army. After being released with an honorable discharge, he met the love of his life and spent the next 41 years married to his soul mate Kristen Holje.


Danny’s primary work history was in retail, either in the corporate world or later on in private entrepreneurship.


Danny and Kristen were truly blessed with their only child, Daen Scott. She was the center of their worlds with every breath she drew.


Danny leaves behind his two mentors that guided and supported him during the troubled years and were soul mates till the day he died, Jack Cowlishaw of Bozeman and Darry Chapman of Chinook. His aunt and uncle; Sharon and Allen Rasmussen of Fort Ransom, ND, and their four beautiful children; Rita, Wayne, Luke and Jason. My many and dear friends of Miles City that are too numerous to mention here, but to whom I shared much fellowship, love and brotherhood. My darling sister Diane, whom I deeply loved. Holly Holje, my sister-in-law and is an angel on earth. My beautiful daughter Daen and her husband Jeremy and their two beautiful children, Gavin and Vivianne. Danny’s wife who is his guiding light, eternal, unwavering love strength of character and true soul mate.
