Dan was survived by his wife of 62 years, Romayne Zurk; his sister, Pat Zurkowski; his daughter, Lisa Zurk and son-in-law Michel Pinton.

He was born in Chicago, Ill. and lived there in his youth before he entered the Army and served in Europe. Upon return, Dan worked for Sears in Illinois and in Boston, Mass. for many years. Dan lived in many areas of the country, including Needham, Mass. and Lake Oswego, Ore., where he resided at Mary's Woods Retirement Community. Dan was the consummate handy-man and built cabins on his own in Michigan and Maine. He enjoyed tennis and golf and reading Westerns and mystery novels. He was a loving husband, father and brother and will be missed by many for his vitality and good cheer.
