> Dan was a life-long mechanic and car enthusiast. He was adopted in Canada at about 18 months old, and his parents commented that the faster the train went on the way home, the better he liked it. His dad was a partner in a large hardware store in Iowa, and once brought home several spare parts and at least one non-working small engine. Dan was about 9 years old, so it obviously caused much excitement when they heard the motor "putt" to life in the basement.
Dan was a man of many talents, and lived a life few others would chose. From being a drummer in a band to a professional daredevil and stuntman, he wasn't scared to make his own tracks in this world. He left his mark where he traveled; as a 3-time Golden Glove boxing champion, he left another on the faces of those he faced in the ring.
