Dan was preceded in death by a son, Daniel V. Kesack and a sister, Geraldine "Geri" Kotran.

I am so sorry for your loss. Dan was a graet Team Leader during my formative years as an analyst at the former Fleet Material Support Office (FMSO). He was well respected by his peers and all that knew him within the Navy Supply family here in the states as well as overseas.

 Aunt Claire was always so much fun to be with.  I loved "hanging out" with her, at the family reunions.  She kept me laughing.  I really enjoyed her and Uncle Doyt anytime I got to spend time with them.  Both were so interesting to talk with and spend time.  I spent many a hours around the old table at grandma's with them.  I miss both and am so sorry over your loss.  I know how hard it is to lose both parents.  Life is never the same.
