Daniel Taylor was born October 1, 1972 in Minneapolis, the son of Donald and Rita (Conner) Taylor. He was raised in Minneapolis. He loved spending all his vacations and summers at his grandparents Ken and Jeanette Conner in Cass Lake. He worked summers logging with his grandpa and his uncles and was an avid hunter and outdoorsman his entire life. He graduated from South High School, then moved to Bemidji to attend Bemidji State University, where he majored in Criminal Justice.
He met his wife, DeNae Olson, while participating in theatre. Dan and DeNae were married in McAllen, Texas on January 31, 1992 and made their home in Bemidji. Dan graduated from NWTC with licensing in machining. They eventually made their home in Zimmerman, where their family was very active in St. John’s Lutheran Church.
The call of Northern Minnesota brought them back and Dan found the dream job of his life working at Arctic Cat in Thief River Falls. He absolutely loved this extended family and often remarked how lucky he was to find a job he loved. Dan and DeNae were blessed with four wonderful children, Nicky, Bear Bear, Ole and Zoo Zoo.
