Daniel Bernard Young was born on October 17, 1960, to Charles and Eileen Young in Milwaukee, and died November 25, 2014, in Golden, Colorado.
It is fitting that Dan found his final rest in the mountains of Colorado. As an active outdoorsman, he enjoyed photographing and experiencing nature through backpacking, snowshoeing, mountain biking and cross country skiing.
Dan graduated from Catholic Memorial High School in Waukesha in 1978 then attended vocational school earning his welding certification. He went on to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee. He worked a number of years for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and later worked in air quality engineering in northern Wisconsin and Colorado.
Dan will always be fondly remembered for his willingness to help others and for his tenacity in finding answers and solutions to perplexing problems. He is missed by all who knew and loved him. He is survived by his brother Jim and sister-in-law Tami, and their three children Aubree, Damon and Samuel of Edmond, Oklahoma, as well as numerous extended family members and friends.
