Dan was a meat cutter for over 52 years. He was an all around supporter of Oconomowoc athletics, especially their wrestling club. Dan was proud to have served in the U.S. Navy with three tours to Vietnam and was a member of the Fred A. Schaefer V.F.W. Post # 1393.
Dan was the most loving, devoted, and caring husband to Judy (nee Lembck) for almost nine years. He was the loving father of Jeffrey and Christopher (Kirsten); and grandfather to Adriana. “Papa” was like a dad to Fred (Karen) Akeson and his precious granddaughters, Harmony, Savannah, and Paulina. They said he was awesome and “Papa, Papa, Papa” was heard everywhere. Dan is further survived by brothers, John, Bill, and Joe of Oregon; sisters, Michaelee of Oregon and Charlene of California; his mother-in-law, Esther Lembck; and many other family and friends.
Dan was preceded in death by his mother, father, and twin brother.
