Bogan, Daniel H.

Daniel H. Bogan, passed away on Sunday, July 16, at St. Elizabeth Hospital surrounded by family and special friends. He had been fighting a three-year battle with oral cancer. Dan was born on November 25, 1949, to Doris May Wilson. He was a Valley resident for most of his life. He was active in many sports, excelling at golf, bowling, and shooting pool. Dan married Marcee Seemann on September 18, 1971.

He started his working career at Kools Bros, learned industrial engineering and worked at Kurz & Root, Appleton, Leach Co., Oshkosh, and Riverside Paper Co. He left the corporate world to become an independent salesperson, which he found much to his liking. He loved to sit and talk and share a joke or a story with his customers. He felt he had the job of a lifetime until the summer of 2003.

A six-month sore throat just would not go away and was determined to be tonsillar cancer. He endured surgery, radiation, and many types of chemotherapy but the cancer came back and refused to go away. He became active in the Oral Cancer Foundation; going to Las Vegas and West Virginia to participate in Fund Raising. He frequented the Oral Cancer Website and touched the lives of many oral cancer victims.

He was always ready to offer encouragement, prayers, or a little wit and wisdom about the Packers, golf, and Wisconsin. He wants everyone to know that a sore in your mouth or throat lasting more that 14 days needs to be checked out. Be persistent.

Dan is survived by his wife of 34+ years, Marcee Bogan. He is also survived by numerous family and friends; a son Chris, Kaukauna and a daughter, Maggie (Ben), Madison; both whom he is extremely proud of; his siblings and in-laws: Mike and Carol Bogan, Neenah; Pat and Peggy Bogan, Wausau; Ellen and Tom Taplin, Appleton; Kathy and Bruce Huelsbeck, Combined Locks; John and Kathy Bogan, Appleton; Jean and Jim Piette, Appleton; sister-in-law, Sandy Fritch, Wausau; Sharon (Seemann) and Barry Moore, Maryland and Jeff and Sherri Seemann, Fredonia; his father and mother-in-law, Allyn and Genevieve Seemann, whom he lovingly cared for during the last three years of his battle with cancer; special aunts: June (Charles) Hoeppner, Muriel Wilson, and Margaret "Pete" Hankowitz; and also Angie (Josephs) Byrne, a friend and honorary member of his family; 19 nieces and nephews, numerous great-nieces and great-nephews, and many cousins and friends survive him as well.

His brothers Peter and Allen; his mother Doris, and a very special niece, Kathleen (Katie) Bogan, preceded him in death.

Funeral services for Dan will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday, July 19, 2006, at CHRIST THE KING LUTHERAN CHURCH, 601 South Washington Street, Combined Locks, with Reverend Bill Schroeder officiating.

I also want to thank the family of Dan's organ donor who in their own grief made a decision that gave us three wonderful years of living without diabetes and gave Dan the chance to do things he never dreamed he could do. People always tell us how lucky Dan is to have me, but they are wrong. To have the most courageous, kind-hearted and genuine man I have ever known as my husband makes me the lucky one. Liz

My Baby Boy

Your courage was unending, your humor abundant. You made us laugh and cry. Ride the train to heaven with your Mickey ears and computer by your side. Play with your niece and nephews and tell grandma and grandpa, Hi! Until we're together again in that big swimming pool in the sky, I'll love you forever and in my heart you will never die. Love you, Mom

My son, you grew into a fine young man and tried to share your heart & love. You're happy and whole now and we'll try to think of that in our grief. Gee-Ki Dan. You're welkman, I love you, Dad
