Daniel Allen Loss

Daniel Allen Loss, 51, passed away April 13, 2010 in Aspen. He was born Dec. 14, 1958 in Los Angeles, Calif. to Daniel and Verlie Loss.

Daniel is survived by his brother, Ed Marrow; sister Paula Grogan-Onescu; adopted sister Valerie Streit; half-brother Richard Riddle (Laura); half-brother Todd Montendon; half-sister Cherie Wand Loss, siblings just now aware of and not known till now, nephew Corey Onescu; nieces Danielle and Ashley Onescu, Erica Denke and Dawn Ray Marrow; and best friend Mike Ashcraft and family.

Daniel was preceded in death by his stepfather Bob Hite, mother Verlie Hite, brother Mick Hite and his father, Daniel Loss.

No services will be held; cremation has taken place and his sister Paula Grogan Onescu will be bringing him home. Daniel Loss died suddenly and tragically on Tuesday, April 13 while doing what he did best. Danny was an amazing woodworker and his touch can be found all over the Roaring Fork Valley. He had an incredible storied life that only his friends knew about and could listen to him for hours. He had a heart as a big as anyone I have ever known! He had a long career working in the motion picture industry in California before coming to the valley to leave his mark.

His passions were woodworking, cars and enjoying camping in our beautiful valley. He will be forever missed, but will always be in our hearts. We love you Danny from friends in the valley. I, Paula Grogan Onescu, sister of Danny Loss, would like to thank all of my brother’s friends and coworkers for being there for me as well and for being in his life through good, rough and bad times, especially Mike Ashcraft – these two guys were buds and will be for life. I would hope to meet you all, I have some. I loved my brother with all my heart and the love will remain always with me.

My song to my brother is “Open Arms” by Journey. Love you Danny, you will always be with me. Love, Sis Paula.
