In addition to serving his country during the Vietnam war while a member of the Coast Guard, Dan had many hobbies and passions.  He was an avid collector, rebuilder, and admirer of vintage stereo equipment. He loved music, his album collection is not only eclectic but rare and cherished. He enjoyed photography, playing the guitar,  being outdoors, and in his younger days, building and riding his Harley Davidsons. As a spinal cord injury survivor at the age of 29, Dan’s spirit became unbreakable.  His independence was fierce, his faith strong, and his love and dedication to his family and friends undeniable.
