He met his wife Donna while working at Boyle Midway, and married her in 1969. While at Boyle Midway, he took great pride in developing a number of well-known home products, such as Wizard Air Fresheners, and Easy-Off Oven Cleaner. It goes without saying that friends and family of Dan always had spotless ovens and the freshest smelling homes!
