Dan Ducey 1950 – 2013

On Monday we lost a true warrior and amazing spirit – our friend and colleague Dan Ducey – a beautiful man with a disability who never stopped working on our behalf from the minute he accidentally landed in a wheelchair nearly two decades ago. More than anything, Dan was a family man, husband to his wife Linda and father to his son and daughter.

 His was a love story. A LOVE story. Not just a story of epic struggle against ridiculous odds both mental and physical, but most importantly a love story. We would like to honor Dan’s legacy by loving more. And being loved. And yes, struggling harder. But loving more. A sad day closes with his passing.”

 ~Jim Beck

Services will be held on Monday, February 4th at 7pm at the Wasilla Bible Church. In lieu of flowers the family would prefer donations be made in Dan’s honor to the Wasilla Bible Church.
