    Our deepest sympathy and sincere prayers to Dan’s brothers and sisters and all who knew and loved him. Our hearts go out to you.
    Dan was a cousin to my Mom on the Krzemien side, and therefore a cousin to my Sibs and me. I fondly remember him most from Ryan High School days! Dan was a free spirit and one of a kind personality! God broke the mold when he created Dan!
    He had a gift for making others laugh and enjoy life.
    I can’t begin to imagine how much he was loved and how much he will be missed.💙🙏🏼💝🕊️. Dianne, for the Majorek cousins

    My Sibs and I send our deepest sympathy and heartfelt prayers to Dan’s brothers and sisters and all those who loved him.
    Dan was a cousin to our Mom on the Krzemien side of the family, and therefore a cousin to my Sibs and me. I remember him best from Ryan High days. Dan never seemed to take life too seriously; he was always making people laugh and forget their troubles!
    I can’t even imagine how much he was loved, and how much he will be missed. But the hallways of heaven will never be the same now!💙🙏🏼🕊️

    So sorry for your loss prayers to you!

  • David Hill Posted November 14, 2023 11:45 pm

    I spent a lot of highway time with Dan and we had many conversations about many things. One thing I do know is that Dan’s recent schedule change put him exactly where he wanted to be the last few months. He told me this change is all he ever wanted but unfortunately his time was cut short. He will always live in my thoughts and I will miss him.

  • Art & Kay Runge Posted November 15, 2023 9:19 am

    So sorry to hear of Dan’s passing. We were Friends on Facebook and always enjoyed messaging back and forth. He was one of a kind. But Heaven has gained a good one.
    Love to all.

    Dan was always a bright spot to every day. Between his crazy stories and jokes, his “ID’s” and unique handles for everyone, we all knew and loved Dan and looked forward to him coming every day. His tragic and untimely passing is another reminder to cherish the time we have on earth and don’t take anything for granted. Dan will be greatly missed by MANY at the KC Fed!

  • Ron Ridge Posted November 15, 2023 12:19 pm

    I will miss Dan and all our conversations about cars. I worked with Dan and he was always fun to be around. I will always hear his voice when we are loading and unloading our trucks.

  • Tay Bledsoe Posted November 16, 2023 7:31 pm

    I worked with Dan for 4 years at Rochester. He was a great guy and got along with almost everyone. I had lunch with Dan a couple of weeks before the accident, and visited him once in the hospital. I’m really unhappy that he died.

  • Teresa Bledsoe Posted November 16, 2023 7:31 pm

    Dan worked with my husband several years ago. He lived nearby us and would always stop and chat if we drove by and saw him outside or wave hello when I was walking the kids home from school and he was out walking his dogs. My condolences to Dan’s family and all of his friends and coworkers. He will clearly be missed.

  • Jami Wichman Posted November 17, 2023 6:02 am

    My sincere condolences to the family. Dan dated my sister many, many years ago and he played Santa Claus for me when I was little. He brought gifts into the house as I hid behind a chair and that is a memory I will never forget. He also used to come out to the farm and help cut silage. I remember him always being so cheerful and respectful to everyone. Thank you for the wonderful memories.
    May Dan rest in peace. .

  • Jami Wichman Posted November 17, 2023 7:50 am

    My sincerest condolences to the family. Dan dated my sister many, many years ago and he played Santa Claus for me when I was little and I hid behind a chair watching him put presents under the tree. I will never forget that cherished memory of Dan! He also came out to the farm and helped to cut silage. He was always so cheerful and respect and always had a smile on his face. A soul lost too early. He will be missed!

  • Karen Muckel Posted November 18, 2023 11:00 am

    My deepest sympathy to the Krzemien family. You have suffered another great less in less than a year. Dan was a very dear friend of mine that I meet many years ago. I was devastated when I learned of his passing. He would call me regularly and visit whenever he could. I would cook a nice meal for him and we would watch movies together. There are no words to express how much I will miss him. The world has lost a wonderful person and heaven has gained a special angel. I will hold you forever in my heart. Rest in peace my friend.

  • Erik Garcia Posted November 18, 2023 4:45 pm

    Hi Doris,
    Hi Doris, I was so sorry to hear about your brother. Mary called the Wednesday before Thanksgiving to say she had read it in the paper. I’m sorry it has taken me so long to respond but family just left from the holiday.
    Please accept my sincere condolences! When we meet for lunch in January we will say a “together prayer” for you and your family.
