Dan enjoyed banking because he said, “he liked helping people, serving the community, and helping it grow.” Dan grew the bank from $25 million in assets to its current size of over $3 billion. In all that time he often remarked, “he had never received a promotion!” During his tenure at the bank, he helped build businesses, rebuilt businesses after the 1964 Good Friday earthquake, witness the historic North Slope oil lease auction, and the following boom and bust of the pipeline era. Dan became a private pilot shortly after he and Betti married. They thoroughly enjoyed flying to remote areas. Dan loved Alaska and respected those who chose to live and thrive in this State. He loved his family, he loved his Bank, he loved to fish and hunt, and he taught his family to share his loves. Civic and industry organizations gave formal recognition to Dan through the years, bestowing such awards as the Anchorage Chamber’s Gold Pan award for individual achievement in 1965. In 2002, a statewide committee of civic leaders selected him Alaskan of the Year. In 2006 the Alaska State Chamber awarded him the William A. Egan Outstanding Alaskan Award. In 2007 the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska dedicated its Welcome Center on Elmendorf Air Force Base in his name, and most recently in 2009 the Associated General Contractors of Alaska bestowed its coveted Hard Hat Award to Dan. Dan is preceded in death by his parents, Warren and Lucy, his brother, David, his wife, Betti, and his granddaughter Nikki. He is survived by his six children and their spouses, fourteen grandchildren and their spouses, and three great grandchildren. A memorial service was to be held at the Wendy Williamson Theater, with a reception immediately following at the Lucy Cuddy Center at the University of Alaska.
