Dan grew up and attended school in Wappingers Falls, NY and graduated from Hofstra University with a bachelor’s degree in computer science. He had a strong work ethic and a successful career for over 40 years in information technologies, rising to executive officer positions for several multinational corporations. He designed a number of unique software programs over the years, many of which are still in use. Dan left the corporate realm 8 years ago and realized his dream of owning his own business. He owned and operated the PostalAnnex+ in Kingwood and was able to be an active community supporter through this work. Some of this community involvement included multiple connections to Humble ISD through the Education Foundation, several elementary PTOs, site based committees and various individual school’s organizations. Dan was involved in the BNI Humble Business Alliance, and served on the MUD84 board in Oakhurst.
Dan met his wife Judi (Slotnick) while attending Hofstra University and they were married on May 28, 1978 in Boston, MA. They recently celebrated 42 wonderful years of marriage. Dan was very proud of his three children and worked hard to take care of his family. He will be remembered as a loving Papa to his three grandchildren who were a great source of joy for him. He enjoyed golfing and took great pleasure in being able to build his home on the golf course in Oakhurst.
