Dan moved to Winnemucca to start his law enforcement career in August 1987 with Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. In June of 1989 he transferred to the Winnemucca Police Department.
He then met his loving wife Karol at church service and got married on May 6, 1995. They spent 26 amazing years together. In February 2011 he transferred back over to the Humboldt County Sheriffs Office where he finished out his law enforcement career in April of 2016.
He always had been a fire arm enthusiast. Just before retirement he started a gun smith shop with a good friend.
Besides his love for guns he also had much love for his late wife Karol and her two daughters (Jesica and Sarah) that he learned to love as his own and his wonderful grandkids.
He loved to teach his grandkids terrible jokes and how to protect themselves.
Dan was the protector of the family and everyone around him. He was always a safe place to go to.
