Dan enjoyed starting his day having coffee and breakfast with his parents every morning; taking trips into town, hanging out and reminiscing about music and life with his dad. He had always loved his brother and sister and has watched over them and protected them even though they drove him crazy at times. He loved all of the children in his family by taking them fishing, to Marvel movies; doing sports cards, and teaching them about life. He doted on his mom and others in his family by seeing that little something and buying it for them. He will be forever loved and missed by his family until we meet again in heaven. A special thank you to Dan’s nurse at Blodgett Spectrum Hospital, Traci. She took good care of him with love and compassion, as if Dan was her own son. The rest of the staff was also amazing to the whole family. The family would like to thank everyone for their out pouring of love for Daniel and family. You are truly amazing and have touched Dan’s and our lives. You will never be forgotten.
Dan’s Memorial Service will be held Saturday November 2, at 1:00 PM at Baxter Funeral & Cremation Service in Battle Creek, with Pastor Don Mason officiating. Refreshments to follow. A Celebration of Life dinner will be held Sunday, November 10 at 5:00 PM at Athens High School. We invite all to come and help us celebrate our most special man.
