What’s fire trucker
Damn he was relatively young wasn't he?
A brewery in ankeny.
Brewery in Ankeny
Damn... I really like Firetrucker. Hope it can keep going.
Brewery in the DM metro, Ankeny I'm pretty sure.
Dan was young. He was 52, I believe. While I didn’t know him well, I did spend time riding with him and he was ALWAYS a pleasant person.
here’s the thing...he was fine this time last year. He was OK during Ragbrai...and now he’s gone.
cancer can take you quickly and in a devastating way. Love and live with happiness every day.
if I’m not mistaken, Firetrucker has other investors and should be continuing as a successful brewery.
Damn - I used to work at the same company with Dan in Des Moines many years ago. He left a very lucrative position to chase his passion - which became Firetrucker. Haven't talked to him for several years but he was a great guy. Such crappy news.
He had basketball tickets near us, and I had seen him a few times at games before Xmas. That was fast.
incredibly...my friend saw him this past saturday and they spoke for some time...to think that only 4 days later he is gone is awful.
maybe it's because I'm getting older but this stuff seems to hit harder than it used to. IDK...perspective seems to be changing.
What kind of Cancer?
This is a huge bummer. Dan was a great guy. I grew up with his son in Ankeny, and got to have several chats with Dan at the brewery and on bike rides. He was quirky and very clever and always a joy to chat with
yeah his son was in my grade and we played ball and had summer lifting together most years. haven't really talked since and didn't really know Dan by name the times I would be there so never put two and two together.. but this sucks as Dan was always great during the Ale Olympics. he will definitely be missed in the biking and craft beer community.
Didn't know Dan but sounds like a great guy. Prayers to his family and friends.
The Register story from this afternoon:
I hate to ask the question, but it is kind of the elephant in the room.
I learned about his passing when I read the Register this morning. The article says zero about dying from cancer so I was wondering how such a young man died.
According to some on the thread, he had cancer.
But....did he die of cancer?
Yes it was renal cell cancer.
