He was a longtime member of the Knights of Columbus, Club With No Name, and various singing groups including the 3M Mellow Fellows. He served his country in the Korean War, enjoyed two loving marriages, and was a proud Irishman who had a great religious faith and knew exactly where he was destined to go once his days on Earth were done.

Dear Joyce and families! We will miss dear Dan's voice and antics. Like the time he and a few others took our Crosley and put it on the steps to the Y's Club with no name. It seems they had fun moving the car from one parking place to another and my sisters didn't catch on. So in frustration, they put it on the steps so it would be obvious the car was moved! The Crosley was a mini car back in the 50's. It had runnng lights on the very top.
