Age 92, of Maplewood, MN Went to heaven on Tuesday, August 24, 2021. Preceded in death by first wife Eileen; granddaughter, Mikaela Hames; grandson, Jacob Hames; his parents and three sisters.

Born and raised in St. Paul, Dan attended St. Agnes School from kindergarten through high school. His baseball and tennis skills, sales and marketing abilities, sense of humor, love of all things sweet, and Irish tenor singing voice were legendary. 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. The family would like to thank Dr. Morkeberg and the staff at St. John's Hospital for their kindness and professionalism.
