Dan has been married to his wife (and best friend), Judy, since 1983. He is the very proud father of four children – Amy, Shaun, Ryan and Stuart.  And, he is the very proud grandfather of seven grandchildren.  Dan is determined for VSV to be a prime example of a successful veteran-owned family-owned small business that focuses on the customer.  He knows through his decades of business experience that consistently delivering quality products the customer expects and deserves is key to the company’s success.  When Dan isn’t busy at work he enjoys and truly appreciates being with his family and making great memories.  He also enjoys exploring the outdoors whenever he can and visiting new places.  Dan is an avid supporter of his community and local businesses where he resides in Jefferson, Texas.
