Dan had an extreme love for his family and friends and enjoyed spending time with them. He found joy in making other people happy and was always the life of the party. There are many memories we all share of Dan singing and dancing anywhere he could. Dan enjoyed watching the Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers and playing poker. He was an avid Brett Favre and Michael Jordan fan. During his free time, he enjoyed playing basketball, baseball and football as well as going golfing.
