Daniel Alan Barlau left this earth with the angels on Aug. 27, 2020, after a tragic gun accident in Arizona. He was 37.

He was born April 18, 1983, to Julie Barlau.

Daniel was born and raised in Osceola. He then moved to Arizona for his soulmate and forever love, Heather. Together they have two loving little boys, Easton and Sawyer.

Daniel’s heart and soul loved Osceola. He graduated in 2001, wore #45 in football, loved our endless camping, canoeing, all night campfires, stars and fishing! Daniel has a heart brighter than the sunshine and always wanted everyone to smile. He lived life to the fullest and shared with many friends.

His grandpa, Dennis William Barlau, Sr., died in November 1972.

He is survived by his Osceola family including his loving mother, Julie L. Ward of St. Croix Falls/Osceola; grandma, Vi Westling of Osceola; sister, Amber M. Barlau; brothers Austin D. Barlau; along with many aunts, uncles and cousins. He is also survived by his Arizona family including his father, Randy Posusta; grandma, Rose Posusta of St. Cloud, Minn.; sister, Emily Posusta; brothers, Tyler Posusta and Cody Posusta.

Daniel, my son, thank you for 37 years of being your mommy. Love forever. We will miss you but we will never forget you. You are my shining star.

Celebration of life will be held at a later date.
