In 1966, he joined the U.S. Air Force, and was sent to various military bases until he was honorably discharged in 1970. Dan met his wife, Sherryl Smart, while he was stationed at Elk City, Oklahoma and within the year, they moved to Merced, California where he was discharged. He returned to Reading, PA for about two years where he worked as an auto mechanic; then they moved to Enid, where he again found employment as an auto mechanic, something he loved and was good at.

He retired in 2015, and he and Sherryl celebrated 50 years of marriage in 2019.
