Mulheran, Daniel Patrick 69, is finally hand-in-hand with his Lord and Savior after a life lived to the fullest. He was a Minnesota native who, at 21, went to San Francisco for a short stint in the Navy and met his California girl, Carol. For 50 years, they built a life together on the foundation of six words: "all my life, all my love." Dan was a lifelong learner, dreamer and doer. He received his BS in Business from the University of California, Hayward and continued his Masters work at the Wharton School of Business. For 30+ years in the insurance business, he built a successful agency, earned many professional accolades as well as served on many boards. He was a wild adventurer from helicopter skiing and motorcycle trips with his brothers to around-the-world travel with Carol, their friends and their kids. He loved being on, in and around water, but nowhere was more special than Bay Lake and the community of friends made there. In 2001, Dan and Carol began to winter in Naples, Florida and eventually made this their permanent home. Dan was diagnosed with ALS in the October 2018, and this disease began to slow down the forever "Mr. Fun" as he was so lovingly known. He faced ALS with incredible courage and unwavering faith, continually surrounded by his most precious asset; his family. Dan leaves behind a deep legacy of love. He is survived by his wife, Carol, their children Dan, Jr. (Katy), Mary, Colleen, and Paul (Jennifer) as well as seven grandchildren: Patrick, Thomas, Aidan, Daniel Patrick III, Kellan, Liam and Olivia and his siblings: Joe (Jean), Mollie (Tom), Kassie (Jim), John (Mollie), and Peter (Mary) along with countless nieces and nephews. He is met in heaven by his mother and father, Joe and Mary as well as his brother, Paul. He lived his life following two edicts; "attitude + activity= success" and "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'wow, what a ride.'" -Hunter S. Thompson. In lieu of flowers, Dan wished that you consider donating to Paralyzed Veterans of America, N.C. Little Memorial Hospice or The Minneapolis Veterans Association SCID.
