Dan courageously battled leukemia for the past two years and recently suffered complications from an illness following his stem cell transplant. After graduating from Bishop Carroll High School in 1973, Dan went on to work at the Ebensburg Center where he loved working with adults with various disabilities. Everyone who knew Dan felt his compassion and empathy for others. Dan was a music fanatic and loved reading. He was a member of the Immergrun Golf Club for many years. His time on this earth was spent doing all of the things that he loved. Dan was a devoted husband, father, brother, and friend. He enjoyed traveling and spending time with his wife, daughters, son-in-laws, and grandchildren in addition to spending time at camp with his brothers. A special thank you to the Hillman Cancer Center and all the employees on the 7th floor. He will truly be missed by each and every one of us.

At the request of the deceased, there will be no viewing. A private service and celebration of Dan’s life will commence at a later date.
