Dan was born December 28, 1951, he is the son of Gordon and Bendina (Tebbe) Petesch. He graduated from Bellevue Marquette High School in 1971. Dan worked with his father on the family farm in rural Springbrook and then continued farming on the family farm until moving into Bellevue. He worked for over 20 years at Bellevue Marquette Schools and was known as the Marquette “Super Fan” He was later recognized at the state tournament in Des Moines for his love and devotion to the School and its basketball teams. Life to Dan, was all about people and relationships. His only concern was how he could serve others and when the next Karaoke night was. Dan always had a smile on his face and knew no strangers. “Dan the Man” will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him. He cherished his time with his family and took much pride in his infamous orange 2013 Camero with "CNORRIS" license plates. Dan's family would like to send a sincere thank you to the people of Bellevue who helped look over Dan the past few years. You were truly his guardian angels and we are forever grateful.
