Daniel was born May 10, 1949 in Fargo, North Dakota to EJ and Anna (Campbell) Dullea. He graduated from Shanley High School in 1967 and attended North Dakota State College of Science and North Dakota State University prior to his return to the family farm. On May 19, 1973 he married the love of his life, Kathleen Ann Grimler, in Nevis, Minnesota. The two spent many years living and loving farm life, until 2009, when he suffered a heart attack. Since then he enjoyed spending time with his family especially his grandchildren. He and his wife enjoyed visiting their children in North Dakota, Minnesota, Colorado, and Pennsylvania.  Dan was a President of Northwest Farm Managers and also helped start Jaycees in Georgetown, MN. He spent time on the Shanley Dinner Auction Committee and 4 years on the Shanley First-Nighter committee, ending as chairman.  He was appointed Grand Knight of the Holy Spirit Knights of Columbus and was also a 4th Degree Knight. Dan’s faith meant a great deal to him and he was a very active member of his church.

    Kathy and family,
    Jenna just let us know about Dan’s ‘rebirth’. Our deepest sympathy and prayers go out to each of you. We know this has been a long struggle for you all. We can take some comfort in Dan’s strong Catholic faith (and all of ours) knowing that today Dan is in the presence of our God! Our Catholic faith assures us that whoever believes in Jesus, the Christ, shall never die, but shall live.

    It is not for us to reason how or why, but to accept God’s timing and to accept His ever present mercy and love to heal and renew us!

    May God’s peace and healing be with each of you especially now in your time of great sorrow!
    Patty and Bruce
