Daniel R. Limke II, 57 years old of North Little Rock, formerly of DeQueen, Arkansas, passed away peacefully at his home on March 16, 2023.
Dan was preceded in death by his father, Dan Limke, and is survived by his mother, Donna Limke, the loves of his life Charity Dennington and her daughter, Natalie, brother Paul and his wife Melanie Limke, sister Karen and her husband Paul Huffines, nieces Camryn Hill and Peyton Limke, grandniece Abrie Hill and his devoted and loving Weimaraner, Daisy.
Born in Portsmouth, Virgina, Dan later attended and graduated from DeQueen, Arkansas public schools and made his home in Little Rock, Arkansas after college.
Dan was very creative and found happiness exploring new adventures with Charity and Natalie, playing his guitar, photography, and immersing himself in a wide variety of music. Dan was known for his talent in the graphic arts field, his quirky sense of humor – that only a few understood – and his loving, accepting and caring nature. He had many amazing friends from all walks of life that he cared for deeply.
The family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to Dan’s friends who showed their love for him during his illness, Dr. Wilder and staff at the Carti Cancer Center in North Little Rock, Arkansas Hospice, and Shurley Instructional Materials where Dan worked and was part of their family.
There will be a celebration of Dan’s life with friends and family at a later date.
In lieu of flowers or plants please make donations in Dan’s name to the Arkansas Weimaraner Rescue. https://arkansasweimrescue.org/general-donations

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Dan. He was a good friend when we were in high school. He was a sweet and witty guy. I enjoyed getting into mischief with Dan and Lisa Balch when we were in yearbook staff together. Thinking of you all .
I’m so sorry. I always will have fond memories of Dan! Prayers for all the family!
We had alot of great times growing up in West Des Moines Iowa. You were such a good hearted cousin.It was always your laugh. God will take care of u and say hi to Uncle Dan. Love u cuz!
Anytime DeQueen High needed Art they’d break out Limke and myself. We became friends through Art and later music. He became an excellent guitarist and was always the very best of people. He will be greatly missed.
If high school Dan is any indication of how grown up Dan was, he will be greatly missed. The memories I have of Dan and our yearbook crew stay with me. RIP Dan.
Prayers for your family and friends.
Words can’t express the sadness I feel Another good man gone too soon.
Dan will be missed by all who knew him. We rode the bus together as kids and became fast friends. He was always kind and had a special wit about him that made you smile even on a bad day. He was very talented and enjoyed working with him on our school annual. Praying for you all during this time.
You will be missed. I have some really great memories with you. I know we lost touch but you are in my heart. RIP sweet Dan!!
I am so sorry to hear of this. I worked with Dan for several years at the LRCVB. I gave so many great work memories but there was one that showed me Dan’s true heart. My car battery died in the DT parking garage. Since no tow truck can get in there I gave Dan a call to see if anyone could give me a jump. Dan came over immediately to get going. God Speed my friend you’ll be missed by many.
good natured, funny and talented coworker at the leader and always a pleasant surprise when I bumped into him in downtown Little Rock. Didn’t know he was sick. Cancer sucks.
Had the pleasure of working with Dan at Magie Enterprise. He was such a sweetheart. I used to catset for him years ago. I’m sure he’s surrounded in heaven by many. RIP Dan.
Prayers and lots of hugs for you guys in this very hard time
So sorry for you loss. I always enjoyed seeing him.
So very sorry for your loss. I remember Dan from our school years in DeQueen. He was always such a nice person. Prayers & thoughts go out to all.
I’m so sorry. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Though I have never met Daniel, I KNOW he loved and was loved by Charity and Natalie, my sweet niece and great niece. It sounds like there are many, many happy memories held by all sorts of folks in in life. May family and friends find comfort and peace and may God hug you all real tight.
I remember Dan from being little and growing up on Third Street and how us neighborhood kid’s all played together outside for hour’s either in our front yard s or at Legion Park.It sounds as though Dan lived a very active life full of art and music.I’m sorry for your loss and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.Susan Lawnsdail
Dan was a pleasure to be around at the office. He fit in so well here at Shurley Instructional Materials. We miss him.
Donna, Paul, Karen and all, I was sad to learn today that Dan has died. i know we haven’t crossed paths since we were all kids, so far as I can remember, but I value my family and I hate that you have this hole in your daily lives. Peace to you all.
To Donna and all, my deepest condolences with Dan’s passing. I have not seen him since childhood, but still have fond memories of hanging out at the park near their childhood home, with the family outings/picnics we had. Keep the memories close to heart.
I was so sad to hear this news! Dan and I worked together years ago at the Democrat Gazette. He did my bridal portraits, photographed my wedding, and even played the guitar at my father in law’s funeral. He was kind, funny, and so very talented. Our family will always have a warm place in our hearts for Dan.
