Our beloved Husband, Father, Pa, Brother, and Son passed away unexpectedly on September 27, 2012 while doing what he loved; spending time in the outdoors and fishing at Panguitch Lake. Dan was born on February 9th, 1949 in Cedar City, Utah to parents Garth and Dolores Webster. He graduated from Cedar High School in 1967. Dan married the girl of his dreams Brenda Baldwin on June 12, 1971 after returning home from the Vietnam War. Their marriage was later solemnized in the St. George LDS Temple. They were blessed with 41 years of marriage, happiness, success, and shared in the joy of raising their three beautiful children. Dan was drafted into the Army during the Vietnam War and was assigned to the First Air Calvary in the US Army. During his tour Dan was wounded in war and was awarded the Purple Heart for his service and sacrifice for his country. While under attack and wounded, Tayloe Wise a combat medic saved Dan, and from this event a life long friendship ensued. Within the last few years Dan was able to reconnect with some of his fellow service men and in doing so renewed their bond of friendship and military service. Dan and Brenda established a successful business and with the help of their children have ran the Cedar City Dairy Queen for the past 19 years. Dan worked for UDOT and served in different positions during this time. Dan retired from UDOT as the Safety Risk manager after a career that spanned 31 years. In retirement Dan found himself compelled to continue serving and was elected as an Iron County Commissioner in 2010. Dan was a true blooded American, and was red, white, and blue through and through. He loved his country, his community, and always was connecting with someone he knew. Dan was a faithful member of the LDS church and devotedly served in many organizations which he was called. Lately Dan and Brenda were serving as family home evening leaders for the people of Emerald Pointe, a calling which gave them great joy.Dan enjoyed his time in the outdoors and fall was his favorite time of year. He was an avid hunter and created life long memories for his family with these adventures and their time spent at their Cedar Mountain cabin. More than anything Dan loved his family. He was the humble patriarch of the family and showed unconditional love and support for not only his family but for all those he came in contact with. Pa as his grandkids know him, meant the world to him. He held a special place in his heart for them all and capitalized on every moment he had with them. Dan is survived by his sweetheart Brenda, three children; Natalie (James) Henselen, Daniel N. (Valyn) Webster, and Nicole (Dan) Huntsman. Grandkids Taylor and Kaden Henselen, Sydnee, Kaylee, Brynlee Huntsman, and a baby boy on the way, Ashlyn, Mckell, and Kaila Webster. Mother Dolores Demille Webster, brother Kenneth (Terri) Webster, and sister-in-law Jana Webster. He was preceded in death by his father Garth Webster, brother Robert Webster and grandparents. Dan will be long remembered as a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, dear friend, and community servant. We are thankful for his great example. He will always be dearly loved, greatly missed, and never forgotten.
