Dan enjoyed his coworkers and time at Kelm-Acubar until his retirement in 2020.

Dan loved being outside, fishing on his boat, tinkering in his garage, and spending time with his family and friends. He also loved spending time with his fur babies, Chatterbox and Cooper. Dan was fiercely loyal and loved his family whole-heartedly. He was the best husband, father, grandfather, and friend one could hope for.

His infectious laughter, animated stories, endless conversations, and presence will be deeply missed.
