Daniel C. Marander passed away Monday, Nov. 24, 2014 at his residence in McHenry.
He was born June 8, 1952 in Evanston to Donald and Elaine Marander.
Dan assisted his brother in his construction business until health issues no longer allowed him to do so. Among friends, he earned the nickname “Smiley” for his constant smile.
Dan is survived by three sons, Dan Jr., Jim and Donny, two brothers and two sisters, Ron (Cheri) Marander and Jeff (Jackie) Marander, all of Spring Grove, Mia (David) Schwandt of Libertyville, and Sherry (Steve) Kroll of Grayslake, his aunts, Elsie and Barbara, and his uncle, Homer, along with many cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; an infant brother; his uncles, Kelly, Wendell, Art, and Keith; and his aunt, Grace.
Cremation rights have been accorded privately by Justen Funeral Home & Crematory, 3700 Charles J. Miller Road, McHenry, IL 60050.
A celebration of Dan’s life will be held by his family in the spring, when his ashes will be scattered over his parents grave site.
