Dan enjoyed watching Jeopardy and reading books. He also enjoyed roofing, siding, crossword puzzles, teaching his kids and grandchildren to garden, roof, work, ethics and teaching his kids and grandkids our lessons in life. A loving father, Dan believed in family. He was always the first to teach anyone who was willing to learn. We will always remember him teaching his brothers-in-law how to do roofing and siding jobs. Dan was all about history and lessons in life. He would be the first to give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. He enjoyed all of his grandkids and loved to give them rides on his riding lawn mower, teaching them to care for gardens and helping them with their school work. Dan had a very special bond with each and every one of his grandchildren he raised James and Amanda just like they were his own He was always there to provide a loving home for his family.
