Daniel Edward DeHaven

September 22, 2017

Chesapeake- On Friday September 22, 2017, Daniel Edward DeHaven, 45, suddenly went to meet his Lord while doing what he loved…assisting the Great Bridge Crew Club with early morning practice.  He was a realtor with Re/Max Ultra. Danny is survived by his wife of 18 years, Kathy Jones DeHaven. He leaves behind daughters, Apryl Mercado and Crystal Ledder (Marc); his grandchildren, Elijah and Roxanne Mercado (who refer to Danny as “Dad”) along with a loving extended family.

Danny is also survived by his mother, Roberta Pfizenmayer (James) of Southern Shores, NC; his sister, Mary Bohling (James); nieces, Hannah and Leah Bohling; and his nephew, Noah Bohling all of Chesapeake, VA. Danny was preceded in death by his father, Ralph DeHaven.

Danny loved his friends and was a devoted family man. He loved music from the time he was a child and never lost his passion for it- playing at various churches and functions throughout his adult life.  He was known for his special ability to communicate and most often delighted his family and friends with his special humor. Danny had one of the biggest hearts you’ll ever find.

On Saturday October 7, 2017 at 11 am, the family will hold a service to celebrate Danny’s life at the Community Church of Chesapeake at 253 Saint Lukes Church Rd. in Chesapeake, VA. Rev. John Slye, Jr. and Rev. Dan Hardesty will officiate. The urn will be privately interred at Rosewood Memorial Park at a future date.
