otherwise known as "Dan-O" or "Dan the Man" to many, was unexpectedly called to higher duties on November 12, 2020 at the age of 51. He leaves behind the love of his life, his wife, Kim (nee Matuska) and his children, Bryan (Kristin) and Lauren, who will cherish his memory and continue his legacy. He was the proud Papa of Benjamin Richard and his soon to be grandson, whom he jokingly called "Hot Dog." Dan wasn't only the heart and soul of his family; he was the proud owner of Custom Electric Service where his employees and customers knew they were family. Dan's family will receive friends from 10 am to 12 pm on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at Sunset Funeral Home Chapel, 6265 Columbia Road, North Olmsted, OH 44070. A celebration of his life will be held at 12 pm in the Chapel, where in true "Dan-O" fashion, one last toast will be made in his honor. Dan and Kim were passionate advocates for animals. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to Fido's Companion Rescue via the West Park Animal Hospital, the Cleveland Animal Protective League, or any other animal shelter/rescue of your choice.
