Dan enjoyed hunting deer and pheasant with his best friend and brother Gilbert. He was a big sport fisherman; he spent as much time on his fishing boat on Lake Michigan as he could. Dan was most proud of his 24lb salmon catch. His love of the outdoors extended to his family farms and ecological and conservational projects. Dan also liked collecting coins, golfing, and was interested in photography. Among many hobbies was his passion for antique cars. He owned a 1947 Packard and was a member of Chicagoland Packard Club. Dan was a hardworking intelligent businessman. He was a man of very few words but the words he chose were strong and meaningful.
