Dan was born in Seneca Falls, the son of the late Edward and Beatrice (Shefler) Taber. From a young age, Dan had a desire and drive to work. Over the course of his life, he held many jobs including, newspaper carrier, lawn maintenance and mowing, lifeguard, cemetery worker, roofer, machinist at Gould's Pumps, technician at the Seneca Falls water treatment facility, carpenter, boat, auto and vacuum salesman, equipment operator, and lastly as a business owner. It was in 1993 that Dan started Dan's Lawn Service that in 2006 became Dan's Design Landscape Construction, LLC. Dan poured his heart and soul into his business, always striving to make sure his customers were well taken care of and pleased with the work he did.

It was in 1984 when Dan met the woman who would later become his wife, Cynthia Martinez. The couple dated for many years before getting married at St. Mary's Church in Auburn on a cold day in January of 2003. Until Dan's passing, the couple were side by side for over 39 years.

As much as Dan enjoyed working, he also had many hobbies and interests. He enjoyed sports, music, sports cars, travelling, dining out and trying new restaurants in the area, boating, motorcycling, and tinkering with his equipment, trucks, and trailers. Dan also loved to spend time with his family and friends.

Dan is survived by his wife, Cindy; sister, Paulette Sheets; nieces and nephews who were close to his heart, Luella (Chet) Prutzman - Poplaski and their daughter, Tori, Paul (Shannon) Barette, Dave Taber; dear friends, Duane (Lizzy Bogdanovitch) Lawson, Lou (Carol) Cretaro, Brad (Mattie) Stedge, Armando Scialdone; as well as several nieces, nephews, extended family and many friends.
