Dan spent his early years on Gore Hill in Great Falls Montana and later moved to the small town of Cutbank Montana when he was in Middle School. While in Cutbank Dan formed many lifelong friendships.  Dan later met Kristy and together they got married and had their son Brady who was the light of Dan’s life.

Dan and Erica met in 2013.  They married August 22nd of 2015, which brought his bonus son/Sous chef/Super buddy Jamison. Along with Jamison was Dans two bonus daughters Makaylynn and Lynlee and even more recently a grandbaby Millie Rae.

Dan lived an adventurous life. Dan loved exploring! Mostly Dan loved photography, he had a passion and a heck of an eye for photography. Dan should have become a chef, and anyone that knew him being invited for dinner was never a letdown. Dan was a bright spark in this world and will be deeply missed.  He touched the lives of so many.
