Obituary

Carolina Lakes, Fort Mill, South Carolina
Born in Hamtramck, Michigan on Valentine’s Day in 1940, Dan moved to Detroit in 1956 where he graduated from Pershing High School. After graduation, Dan attended Lawrence Technology Institute on an academic scholarship and served in the United States Air Force. While stationed in Ocean City, New Jersey he met a college student, Marjorie Rose, who spent her summers working at the shore. It truly was a summer romance that lasted. Upon Dan's separation from the service and Marjorie's graduation from West Chester University, they married in 1962.
Dan began his career as a Field Engineer, and he and Marjorie started a great life together, lived in fourteen different states, and were blessed with five children and thirteen grandchildren. During his career, Dan was fortunate to see and help computer technology grow from infancy, with large scale systems, to the present, with hand-held personal computing devices. Dan held mid-level and executive marketing management positions in the computer industry, working with customers in the commercial and state/federal government markets. Dan and Marjorie retired in 2000 at his last assignment in Orange County, California. He and Marjorie traveled extensively to all fifty states and fifteen countries -- the Netherlands being his favorite country. In 2008 they really retired to Fort Mill, South Carolina.

In addition to Marjorie, his wife of fifty-six years, Dan is survived by:
Deb and Pat Virant (Katie, Kevin, Sean) of Flower Mound, Texas;
Holly Lozinak (Tyler, John) of Collegeville, Pennsylvania;
Pam and Frank Dougherty (Casey, Shannon) of Doylestown, Pennsylvania;
Paula and Doug Rushlau (Geoffrey, Gabrielle, Madeline) of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania;
Dan Jr. and Janet Broadway (Dylan, Julianna) of Charlotte, North Carolina.

The grandkids affectionately called him Pop Pop. Dan was predeceased by his grandson Jake Lozinak.

The Celebration of Dan's Life will be held Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 3:00 PM at The Chapel of Burgess Funeral Home. The family will greet friends from 2:30 - 3:00 pm at the funeral home.
