He owned and operated Tremont Counter Tops, Inc. for nearly 30 years. Dan was on the Board of Directors of the Tremont Savings Bank. He was the Tremont Village Treasurer for 25 years. He found great joy in serving and he volunteered many hours over the years at Midwest Food Bank, Rescue 702, Gateway Woods Children's Home, Salvation Army, Tremont Turkey Festival, and the Apostolic Christian Church.
His great sense of humor and caring spirit will be missed. Because he repented of his sins and trusted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior, we grieve, but not as those who have no hope. I Thes 4:13
