Dan was such a sweet person. I remember going to the family reunions and he was always quiet. But when he did talk you better listen because he had something important to say. I will miss him as I know all his family will. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. So sorry we couldn't make it.. Love to all of you.

I didn’t know Mr. Dusek, but I do know his children Dennis and Debbie, and grandchildren Taryn, Devon, Ryan, and Maggie. All are such wonderful, giving people who care deeply and give back. Dan and Marie set a great example. Well done, Mr. Dusek. Rest In Peace.

Dan was my first cousin. We both grew up on farms adjacent to each other. Needless to say we spent our complete childhood together. We attended the same schools till graduation. Dan was 3 years older than I and he attended college and I joined the Air Force for a 20 year + stint. We sort of lost track after that and remained till his death. The years of great old memories will remain with me forever. The things we did in early childhood could never be repeated at this day and age. RIP Dan.
