He was awarded a Purple Heart for injuries sustained during his service. In 1949, he graduated with honors from West Chester State Teachers College with a Bachelor of Education in Music Education. On August 29, 1949, he married Laura Frye who predeceased him. Dan was a beloved father, grandfather, brother, and friend.
