Dan served in the Air Force after college, earning the rank of Captain. After his basic training in Tucson, he was assigned to Tripoli, Libya, where his oldest son, Richard, was born. While in the Air Force, he traveled throughout Libya, Italy and France. Dan’s vocation after the Air Force was as a General Contractor primarily focusing on building homes all throughout Shelby County, with some hotels in South Carolina and Ohio as well. He was one of the first builders to become involved in the Harbor Town development in Downtown Memphis and won multiple awards for those projects. He was a member of Christ United Methodist Church, and in his retirement years was an active volunteer in several organizations that worked to feed the underserved and unsheltered in Memphis and beyond. Dan was preceded in death by his wife of 47 years, Susan, his parents, Charley and Florence, and his brother Dick. He leaves behind two sons, Richard and Andy (Molly), 5 grandsons who adored him (Patrick, Daniel, Will, Andrew, and Thomas), and his sister Mary Ann McDow (Clarkson). Due to COVID restrictions, a small service for family will be held on February 23.
