Daniel L. Davis
Dan worked for Mansfield University for 30 years, retiring as the Director of Printing Services. An avid runner, he had run in the Boston, New York, Chicago, Walt Disney World and the Wine Glass Marathons. Dan enjoyed fishing. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge No. 350 in Blossburg, Pa. Dan's passion was his family - his children and grandchildren defined him; he was the one his family counted on when anything was needed. His final day on this earth started with the things he loved most - time spent with family and then going for a run. He will forever be loved and missed.
