In his early years, Dan was an excellent catcher and captain for his high school baseball team and was also the president of his class. After High School, he joined the Army and was stationed in Germany during the Korean War. After the war, Dan obtained his Bachelors and Masters degrees in industrial arts at Trenton State University. He went on to teach industrial arts for 30 years at Allentown High School in Allentown, NJ.

His favorite hobbies included woodworking, especially in creating countless wonderful toys, rocking chairs, and a doll house for his grandchildren. Dan had his retirement home built in Summerville, South Carolina, which was a log home that he did much of the finishing work on. Dan’s other big passion was motorcycles. He rode his Honda Gold Wing well into his 80s and would take many long trips with his wife Evelyn. Dan was a lover of all dogs and had two wonderful Jack Russel Terriors. Dan was also a Master Mason in the Freemasonry, and a Shriner; of which he was a member of the Shriner Motor Unit to raise money for the Shriners’ Hospital for Children.

Dan is survived by his step-son, David Chandler and his wife, Jerrie Bernier-Chander, of Hopkinton, and his three grandchildren, Tess, Elise, and Mitchell.

Services will be held at a future date. Arrangements are under the care of the Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton.
