Visitation and a Vigil service were Friday at the church in Wynot, and continued Saturday at the church, one hour prior to services.

Daniel Joseph Foxhoven, was born Feb. 27, 1954, to Charles and Betty Foxhoven, Wynot, the third child of 11. He attended grade school at Bow Valley and then ninth grade at Cedar Catholic in Hartington. After transferring to Wynot as a sophomore, Dan graduated from Wynot High School in 1972. Dan attended Northeast Nebraska Technical Community College, Norfolk, for building construction. After working several major construction projects around the United States, he attended National College in Rapid City, S.D., where he graduated with honors as a CPA in 1989. While working as a CPA in a Denver firm, he attended The University of Denver, where he graduated with a master’s in tax in 1990, and then started his own accounting firm.

Dan has always displayed a great passion and excelled at anything he was involved in. In his youth, he was an avid hunter and fisherman, having snagged many a paddlefish that was longer than him. He rebuilt, owned and operated the Toadstool Bar, Fordyce, in the mid 1970s. The same passion was in play for years in his backyard greenhouses he used to feed his entire Denver neighborhood. He also funneled that passion into his own accounting firm that turned into a very successful business. As a fitness fanatic, he spent several hours daily in his basement gym.

Dan was a devout Catholic attending Church of the Risen Christ, Denver. Family meant a great deal to Dan. He never missed his weekly phone call to his mom. If you sent him a letter, card or photo, it stayed on display in his house for years.

Dan is survived by eight siblings and their spouses, sister-in-law, (Joan) Foxhoven, Wynot; Shirley (Harvey) Kreikemeier, West Point; Chuck (Rita) Foxhoven, Norfolk; Sharon Dykshoorn, Sioux City, Iowa; Ron (Peg) Foxhoven, Lincoln; Karen (Alan) Kuchta, Wynot; Bob Foxhoven, Wayne; Dave Foxhoven, Parker, Colo.; Kristi Ricks, and fiance, James Valentine, Dakota City; 37 nieces and nephews, 57 great- nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Betty Foxhoven; sister and brother-in-law, Kathy and Steve Hansen; brother, Terry Foxhoven; and great-niece, Piper Foxhoven.
