Dan (a.k.a. “Chopper” or “Bear”) was born July 7, 1944 in Pueblo. He graduated from Central High School and served in the US Air Force. He was the owner of Medved’s Service for 35 years in “Bojon Town.” In addition to being a mechanic, he was also a private pilot and flight instructor (some of his students have gone on to become military and airline pilots.) He was a member of the Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association (AOPA), Knights of Columbus, K.S.K.J. (American Slovenian Catholic Union), Elks and former local president of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA). For many years Dan was an usher at Christ the King Catholic Church.
He was a loving, caring and devoted son, husband, father and grandfather who spent his entire life helping, and there was very little that he couldn’t do, fix or build. His many life-experiences and hobbies included skiing, hunting, fishing, boating, flying, carpentry, landscaping and baking potica; though his greatest love was his family. Dan will lovingly be remembered for always smiling, laughing, and having a great sense of humor. Cremation, Montgomery & Steward Crematorium. Memorial Mass, 10 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 29, 2021, at Christ the King Catholic Church, 1708 Horseshoe Dr. Online condolences, www.MontgomerySteward.com
