He concluded his career at Independent Health Care Plan (iCare), and was dedicated to making it an employer of choice. iCare won Top Workplace honors multiple years. His family is grateful for the wonderful care Dan received from the staff at Columbia-St. Mary's Milwaukee in recent months. It was Dan's wish not to have a funeral.

"Waste not, want not." He has only gone as far from us as God, and God is very near.
