Dan was born in Brainerd on January 17, 1956 to Russell and Alice (Marohn) Barrett. He was a lifelong resident of Baxter, graduating from high school in 1974. Dan worked for Potlatch for 28 years and was coasting into retirement with Anderson Brothers Construction. He married his wife, Marcy Huber, in 1993. Their children were the loves of Dan’s life- Dain and Madison. His grandchildren Maelyn & Rhettly Barrett, gave Dan his proudest title of Grandpa.
Dan loved hunting and fishing with his family and friends. He spent several years white water rafting in Montana. His latest feat was helping Dain get his cherry red 1968 Charger up and running again. He would do anything he could do to help people. Dan had the gift of gab! A trip to Fleet Farm would take all afternoon. He loved the Minnesota Twins and the Vikings.
