Dan lived in Wyoming most of his life, attending school in Green River where he developed countless life long friends. Dan followed in his father’s footsteps and became a plumber. He was most recently employed with Huber plumbing in Casper, a company that treated him like family and definitely showed it when Dan lost his leg. Dan lived to work and had a work ethic that would put most to shame. In his spare time he enjoyed spending time with his niece and nephews. Dan was always a consistent role model to them and more like a parent to them then an uncle. Dan also had two great nieces which earned him the nickname “uncle grandpa”.

Dan was such an amazing person and touched the lives of so many people. He also had some of the most wonderful friends a person could ask for. Thank you all for being so caring!

Dan was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents, uncle Jim Spencer, and uncle Ed Rienhardt. Dan was also preceded in death by many friends gone too soon.

Dan is survived by his Sister Heather Spencer and her kids/grandkids, Jordan Graham, and Jaden Spencer of Casper WY and Sterling “awesome” Rawson of Las Vegas NV. AKA Dan’s right hand man. Dan is also survived by his step mom Karen Spencer of Rock Springs WY, and several aunt’s , uncle’s and cousins. Not too mention all of the amazing friends he leaves behind. Fly high brother. I love you!!
