Daniel William Pivovaroff Obituary
Daniel William Pivovaroff, a long-time resident of Southern California, died on January 23, 2018. Dan was born on June 27, 1938 to Jack William Pivovaroff and Jennie Kashergen. He graduated from Leuzinger High School in Lawndale in 1956. He wed Jo Anne Hesser on July 11, 1959. They were married for 27 years, and they had two children, Jamie Lynn and Michael James. Dan worked as a mechanic, welder and machinist early in his career, before opening his own metal fabrication business in the early 1980s. He kept that business until he retired in 2000. He devoted much of his free time to auto racing and working on cars. He owned and operated Sprint Cars over two decades, and several of his teams had great success, winning main events at tracks across California, Arizona and the mid-west. In 2006, Dan moved to Oakland so his son and daughter-in-law could help with his medical care. He is survived by his sister Florance, daughter Jamie and her three children, and his son Michael. He is preceded in death by his brothers John, Jake, Harry and David and his sister Diane. He was interred on February 9 in a small family ceremony at Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland.
