Danny Charles Temple, age 77, went home with the angels on September 6, 2018, after a long battle with an extended illness. Danny was born on January 26, 1941, to Guy and Velma (Putman) Temple in Fresno, California. He moved to Carmichael, California, at age 5 where he attended school.
After leaving San Juan High School in 1958 he joined the Navy, and served his country until 1962. In 1958 He married Charlotte Lind (McKenzie). Together they had three children: Sherrie Temple (Montgomery) of Pendleton, Oregon; Lori Temple (McCleery) of Pendleton, Oregon; and Danny Temple Jr. of Sacramento, California.
In 1973 Danny married Marlene Maughan, eventually making their home in Winthrop, Washington, and raised two more sons, Monte Temple of Marysville, Washington, and Jason Temple of Winthrop, Washington.
Danny worked in vending and food service, and was a country music singer. He was happiest outdoors, and was often seen hunting for special stones. A generous and kind person, he was always willing to help anyone who reached out to him, and gave of himself in so many ways.
He is survived by his two sisters, Jackie Marden and Judy Sheldon, both of Stockton, California; five children; two stepsons, Brandon Gingerich of Anchorage, Alaska, and Dustin Gingerich of Cashmere, Washington; his lifelong partner and companion of 22 years, Beth Temple of Omak, Washington; numerous grandchildren, and several great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his mother, Velma Putman Temple, father Guy Temple, and brother Garland Temple.
He touched many lives during his time here, and will be missed by many.
A memorial graveside service is at 11:00 a.m. Sunday, September 16, 2018, at Sullivan Cemetery in Winthrop, Washington.
Precht-Harrison-Nearents Chapel and the Okanogan County Crematory are caring for the arrangements.
