Honorary Pallbearers will be Dick Fedt and all Koehn Marketing Employees, Matthew Koehn, Braxton Koehn, Aaliyah Koehn and Joshua Beil.

Daniel Lee Koehn was born May 27, 1964 in Faulkton, South Dakota to Jerry and Marjorie (Tauscher) Koehn. He attended grade school at Immaculate Conception Catholic School and graduated from Watertown High School in 1982. He also attended Southwest State University in Marshall, Minnesota for business.

Dan and Cindy O’Neil were united in marriage on August 27, 1988 and to this union two sons, Matthew and Nick were born.

Dan started working for his dad and uncle’s family business, Koehn Marketing. After his dad and uncle Jim passed away, Dan and his cousin, Jeff, took over ownership of the family business where he was presently working (semi-retired).

Dan was a diehard Minnesota sports fan and loved grilling and listening to 80’s rock while sitting by the campfire. He enjoyed fishing, golfing, hunting and playing cards. Dan looked forward to the 4th of July parade every year, as well as buying fireworks for the kids, which they all looked forward to. He savored his mom’s desserts and also taking trips to the casino with her. Dan cherished spending time with his sons and grandkids as well as his special friend, Cindy.

Dan’s mannerisms and his expressions for telling stories were so funny and he made a lot of people laugh over the years. We will miss him dearly!

Dan is survived by his mother, Marge (Ray) VanWell; his sons, Matthew Koehn of Adams, MN and Nick (fiance, Shelby Blair) Koehn of Watertown, SD; his special friend, Cindy O’Neil of Watertown, SD; two grandchildren, Braxton and Aaliyah Koehn; his brother, Dean (Kathy) Koehn of Brandon, SD; his sister, Dawn (Rory) Beil of Fargo, ND; and his step-siblings, Kevin (Colette) VanWell of Watertown, SD, Keith (Kim) VanWell of Watertown, SD, Robin (David) Schrempp of Box Elder, SD and Audrey (Chad) Lindstrom of Medford, OR.

He was preceded in death by his father, Gerald “Jerry” Koehn.
