Dan was a great sports fan and travelled to most major league stadiums to take in games. To say that he was loved by everyone who knew him is no exaggeration. He never made an enemy and people were always commenting on what a nice person he was.
He was a perfect son, a model husband and a caring father. He was infused with the spirit of peace, joy, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, temperance and humility.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to the doctors and staff of the U of M Bone Marrow Transplant Clinic.
Mass of Christian Burial was held on Tuesday, Aug. 28 at the Cathedral of St. Paul, 239 Selby Ave., St. Paul, Minn.
