Memorial Service Update - 
To all friends, neighbors and colleagues far and wide, please join family and friends to celebrate Dan's life. A memorial service will be held at 3:30 pm, Friday, April 21, at the Basilica of St. Mary, with a reception to follow. Your loving kindness and support continues to carry Diane forward. Every day brings little miracles and profound gratitude.



Original post- 
Daniel Fobbe, devoted husband to Diane Mach, beloved father, grandfather, brother, friend, coach, neighbor, musician tragically passed away in a house fire on April 7, 2017.

Dan greeted each day with his run to pick up the newspaper and coffee, a routine that will be greatly missed  by his neighbors. His vigor for life was apparent and his inner joy was evidenced by his smile and the twinkle in his eyes. 

Dan loved hiking and taking walks around the lake and just being out in nature reenergized his soul.  His passion for music made him seek out opportunities to play whenever he could and he was an awesome drummer. He loved history and he loved sports,  but  his true favorite was hockey.  He enjoyed being a coach and was adored by all the youth he taught over the years.  
 
The funds raised will help the family deal with the immediate  and future expenses as a result of the fire and Dan's funeral.  Your kindness and support is of deep comfort to the family during this difficult time and they are deeply grateful for any contributions made toward the family in their time of need.  

The family also mourns the loss of their cherished pets, Chloe and Cosmo.  

With peace and grace we thank you.

In under 24 hours the outpouring of generosity in memory of Dan and in support of Diane has been incredible. As we are close to reaching the initial goal, there continues to be so many people still asking how they can help. It's impossible to fully know at this time the extent of expenses Diane will face in rebuilding her life and home. With this in mind, we are keeping the fund open for all who still want to give in this way.

Diane is deeply appreciative of your generosity and swell of support and it is carrying her forward, moment by moment. She is surrounded by such love and can't thank you enough.

My heartfelt condolences to Dan's entire family. My heart is sad & I am so sorry I could not attend the funeral service. Back in the day, there was a great group of us that worked at the Dairy Queen. I have such fond memories of that time, and will always remember Dan's mischievous smile and the twinkle in his eyes. He told me back then that he was going to be a rock star or a priest. Funny guy! RIP Dan!
