Together with his wife, the love of his life for 46 years, Dan built a beautiful life filled with love, laughter, and endless memories. A true family man, a gentleman with a huge heart and a smile that touched everyone he met. He had such a passion for life and could fill any room with his contagious laugh. His family was his entire world. He took pride in and adored his daughters Erika & Jennifer and was always so proud to share in all of their accomplishments. His grandchildren were the light of his life and he was sure to let the world know it each and every day. Dan was the "cool Dad" and the absolute "coolest Poppy", but had a strong belief for old traditional ways. He enjoyed Sunday dinners, family gatherings, a great party, going to all of his grandkids events, being with old friends, making new friends, being outdoors, hunting, fishing, time at the shooting range, golfing, and a good debate. He was a wise man, the best giver of advice, and his positive attitude meant so much to so many. Dan always enjoyed a glass of beer, a good cigar, and music by the bonfire with his son-in-laws, who he loved and created a remarkable relationship with. The legacy he leaves behind will be shared by so many, and his spirit will continue to live on through those who loved him.
