Dan was a member of New Haven Congressional Holiness Church in Gainesville.

In the last six months of his life, he was cared for daily by his daughter Tammy. In his long battle with cancer he was blessed with a special blessing of Pa's baby girl, Makenzee McDougald. This blessing was sent from God to bring a smile to his face each day and to help him in his battle with cancer. Another blessing was sent in the form of a grandson, Ethan McDougald.

He is survived by twenty three grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. He was employed by Flowers Baking of Villa Rica and worked as a sales manager in the Gainesville division. He was known, loved and respected by all his employees and fellow workers. He was a devoted and loving husband, father and "Pa". He enjoyed fishing, golf, and his work. He loved taking pictures of anything he saw. He spent many hours in his building reading his Bible and talking to his family about Jesus.
