Dan was blessed to have some of the most wonderful friends a man could ever wish for – and
that’s because he was such a faithful and loyal friend to them. Dan was passionate about
farming and was a successful cattle and row crop farmer – it was truly a labor of love for him.
Dan had a servant’s heart and always strived to do for others. Cooking was one of his favorite
pastimes when he wasn’t working, and he always shared his food with many.
