Dan Jahner, 56, from Detroit Lakes, MN died unexpectedly on Monday, February 20, 2012.
Dan was born July 23, 1955 in Bismarck, ND to Bart and Victoria Jahner. Dan grew up in Fargo, ND and graduated from South High in 1974.
He married Linda Marie Erickson in 1982. A 33 year veteran of Case IH, one of Dan’s greatest joys was working and commuting side by side with his father, Bart, for over 20 plus years. Dan later became employed with Airgas and loved working with the public and thoroughly enjoyed his co-workers, who would inevitably become close friends.
Dan had a love for life, family, friends and animals. He worked hard and played hard. Playing cards, hanging out at the lake and working on cars in his man cave were things he enjoyed.
Dan will be remembered for his love of cars aka “Motorhead.” He had an unending array of one liners. It was hard to go anywhere and not find someone who knew Dan.
He is survived by his wife and soul mate of 30 years, Lyn; his two dogs, Blue and Libby; cats, Lucky, Tia, and Haley; mother-in-law, Lois; brother-in-laws, Gary (Sarah) Erickson, Dave (Cari) Erickson; five sisters, Judy Aalgaard, Sandra (Lee) Ptomey, Debra Flieth, Tammy (Karry) Hoganson and Vicky (Dan) Regan; two brothers, Tim (Carol) Jahner, Tom (Lori) Jahner; 17 nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by parents, Bart and Victoria Jahner; father-in-law, Wallace Erickson; brother-in-law, Terry Aalgaard and niece, Megan Jahner.
