Dan was born in Topeka, Kansas on July 27, 1955 to Alfred Besser and Anne (Butler) Besser. After graduating high school, Dan worked as a heavy machinery mechanic and then completed tech school preparing him for a career as a System Technician for AT&T where he retired from after twenty years. Dan was joined in marriage with his wife Susan (Hammack) on September 9, 2007. In life Dan loved spending time with his family and friends outside. He would enjoy mowing the lawn, spending time in the pool with his grandkids and working on cars. He enjoyed working towards solving a problem whether it be with tools or his very sharp mind. He was a very intelligent man, if someone needed an answer, they would ask Dan. He is loved and will be greatly missed.

Dan was preceded in death by his parents, Alfred and Anne Besser. He leaves behind his loving wife of 24 years, Susan L. Besser; two sons, Joshua Besser (Crystal) and Derrin Coxe (Morgan); daughter Holly Quigley (Isaac); three brothers, Al Besser Jr. (Jackie), Mike Besser (Kathleen), and David Besser (Pam); sister, Christine Besser; and eight grandchildren.

The family would like to extend a special thanks to the Sarah Cannon Cancer Center and St. Croix Hospice.
