Dan worked as a material handler for Compaq Computer for many years before moving to Mentone in 1997. At this point Tonda decided to go to college and Dan decided to stay at home and take care of their kids and the home.
A serious sport’s enthusiast he loved Michigan football, the Detroit Tigers and the Detroit Redwings. He would keep the game stats on every game that was played and he made sure that no matter who was playing he had that team’s shirt or jersey on rooting them on.
