Dan is survived by his four loving sisters, Dawn Bruchan (Dave) of Frisco, Texas, Debbie Marunde (Dan) of Woodstock, Illinois, Karen Neradt (Kurt) of Bloomingdale, Illinois and Pattie Ream (Patrick) of Wentzville, Missouri; ten nieces and nephews; seventeen great-nieces and nephews; and his community of friends.
Dan appreciated the outdoors and all it had to offer; a round of golf, an afternoon of fishing, time spent tending his garden, or just relaxing in his backyard oasis with friends and a good cigar!
Dan’s family would like to sincerely thank the Hilltop staff and Lincolnland Hospice for their wonderful help and care.
