Our beloved Daniel Ross Dreamer, who later changed his name to Dreamer Donyale Cassin, 52, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on April 28, 2019, at the Crow Indian Hospital.
Daniel was born to MaeAline Bullinsight and Donald Dreamer, on October 12, 1966, in Crow Agency, MT. He was a member of the Piegan clan and child of the Greasy Mouth. After the loss of his mother at the age of 4, Rueben and Elizabeth Bullinsight Stewart raised him as their own son. He attended the Kinsman Academy and St. Xavier Mission schools during his elementary years followed by the Hardin middle school and Lodge Grass High School. He later attained his GED in Pullman, Washington.
After high school, he worked at the Yellowstone National Park during the summers and provided homecare for special individuals. He then moved to Albuquerque, NM, where he worked in several different restaurants and usually promoted to a manager position due to his work ethics. He also worked as a CNA at the Albuquerque Manor nursing home facility where he was loved by the residents he cared for.
He always had his family and many friends laughing due to his sense of humor, he was quick-witted, and very generous. Daniel was blessed with gifted hands and anything he created or worked on became a beautiful work of art. He enjoyed all sports but playing volleyball was his favorite. He was a true fan and attended many of the activities that his nephews and nieces were involved in whether it was in New Mexico or Montana. Daniel lived in Albuquerque for 30 years. He was active in the United Court of the Sandias organization that raised funds to assist the less fortunate and through this organization traveled to many cities where New York City was one of the highlights. He loved to cook and was known for his pan bread.
Daniel was a true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. The many crosses he gave as gifts symbolized his faith. He loved all his many nieces and nephews in Montana, New Mexico, and other states. He was “Papa Daniel” to the many grandchildren of his siblings and cherished them all.
His parents, grandparents John and Gertrude Big Day Bullinsight, Casey Dreamer and Edith Long Ears Birdinground; mother Elizabeth Bullinsight Stewart; brothers Charles Blaine, Clinton Sr., Rueben Jr., and Joshua Stewart; and sister Marilyn Benson preceded Daniel in death.
Survivors include his sisters Rena Blaine, Donna (Joey) and Kelly Dreamer, Danelle (Rex) Willis, Ruby Jefferson, Rachel and Roberta Stewart, Joni (Al) Big Hair; brothers David Blaine Sr., Gene and Leland Bullinsight, Dennis (Vianna) Stewart, John and Donovan (June) Bullinsight, Michael and Lansing Dreamer; adopted daughters Darena Dreamer, Cerisa Dillon, and Teresita and Donna Yellowrobe; uncles John (Carol) Bullinsight, Wilford (Lorna), Gilbert (Kathy), Thurlow (Zena), and Quintin Birdinground; aunts Carmaleta Birdinground, Lauren Spint, and Deanna Dreamer. He considered his many friends here and New Mexico as family and special to him as well (Laura He Does It, Mary, Barbara, and Debbie Hill, Rachel and Dorothy Pretty On Top, Tyrone Woods to name a few).
His extended family include Big Day, Big Hail, Little Owl, Greybull, Helen Iron family, DeCrane, Rock Above, Good Luck, Rides Horse, Pretty Paint, Gardner, Birdinground, Anderson, Fitzpatrick, Bear Cloud, Whiteman, Turns Plenty, Sioux, Seminole, Limpy, One Bear, Snell and Bright Wings families.
