Born Sept. 30, 1960, in Rochester to Earl and June Holmberg. Dan was raised with his nine siblings in Rochester. He attended Mayo High School, where he found a love for gymnastics. He graduated in 1978. He met his wife, Mary, in 1979 and they married in 1981. Dan and Mary had two daughters, Sara and Mallory. He was a hands-on dad -- playing and loving his girls was a priority to him.
His biggest passion in life was music, including playing the guitar. He was blessed with an amazing voice, and instilled a great love for music to his daughters, in which, they are grateful for. Dan and Mary loved many other things, which included going to Duluth for vacation, camping, and any activity that included family.
He was a smart man, who knew almost every answer on Jeopardy. He was a treasure trove of knowledge. If you needed a question answered you could call Dan instead of going to google.
