Dan is divorced and has 4 kids. A boy who is 14 and 3 girls under the age of 10. The main reason for this go fund me is to raise enough money to help pay for his funeral expenses and possibly set asside some money for his kids college. Dan's father, Jim Bateman will have 100% control of the funds we are able to generate.
Dan has had several health issues over the past few months. He hasn't been able to sleep and told me a few weeks ago that his biggest concern was that he would fall asleep at the wheel with one of his kids in the car. Thank God that didn't happen, however Dan did fall asleep at the wheel and hit a tree early Sunday morning (December 10, 2017). Unfortunately, early this afternoon (December 17, 2017), Dan lost his battle with the trauma caused by his accident and has passed away.
Dan's parents Jim & Marge and his sister Elizabeth are amazing people from Kalamazoo. They plan to have his funeral in Shelby, MI which is close to where he lives. They are also planning a memorial in Kalamazoo as well.
