Dan was the youngest of five siblings. He grew up working his father’s ranch in Glade Park.

Dan was an exceptionally hard worker, and there wasn’t much he couldn’t fix. He loved to spend time with his friends and family and was known for telling stories. One of his best stories was of roping a bear cub as a young teenager at the ranch on Glade Park.
