Dan was a graduate of Montoursville High School, where he played football.  He served in the United States Air Force and later received his bachelor’s degree from University of Scranton.  Dan worked in the field of IT throughout his professional career living in Mechanicsburg.

Dan was a great husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and an amazing friend.  Many will remember him rooting for the Pittsburgh Steelers, coaching and cheering on his children and grandchildren in sports and various other activities they were involved in.  He always anticipated his fun summer vacations and going to the beach.  Dan was such a happy person who always had a good sense of humor and was simply fun to be around.  He will be truly missed, never forgotten, and loved always.
