Dana Jared Goranson, age 27, of Minneapolis, formerly of Princeton, MN died on Friday, January 24, 2014, due to complications of influenza and diabetes.
Dana, son of Barb and Rand Goranson, was born July 2, 1986, in Cambridge, MN. Dana lived a hard and fast life, like the great rockstars of the past. He lived for cars, for nature, and loved to surround himself with fun and enjoyment. In the end, dancing troubles away with those who loved him. Dana had reached the top, defeated all his demons, and took great pride in showing off the person he had become. He will be remembered by his guilty, infectious smile, bright blue eyes, and all his crazy car adventures of the past. Always, in our hearts and memories, his spirit will live on, forever at the cabin.
Dana is survived by his parents, Rand and Barb Goranson of Princeton; siblings, Brandon (Lisa) of Oregon and Brittany (Fiancé Dan Frye) of Nowthen; grandparents Kathie Heath and Mary "Karlie" Carlson of Princeton and Elton Heath of Moorhead; best friend Brandon Hansen; and beloved dogs Obie and Lily; and half-sisters, Leah and Anna; half-brothers, Eric and Al.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather Roy Goranson and aunt Christine Heath.
A celebration of life will be held Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 3:30PM at Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Home in Princeton, MN. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service.
Arrangements entrusted to Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Home, Princeton.
