Daniel L. Stetz

October 24, 1961 — November 16, 2008

Dan L. Stetz, 47, Moorhead, Minnesota, passed away on Sunday, November 16, 2008 near Hawley, Minnesota. Dan was born on October 24, 1961 to Wally and Lucy (Sauvageau) Stetz in Moorhead, Minnesota. He grew up in Barnesville and graduated from Barnesville High School, in 1980. Dan first worked in construction for Diamond Construction and Jalbert Construction in the Fargo area. Dan Stetz and Sandy Jerger were married in Moorhead, Minnesota on May 23, 1987. They moved to Minneapolis, where he worked for Maureen Johnson Manufacturing until 1990, when he returned to the FM area. Dan joined the Fargo Fire Department in 1991 and was currently employed there. In 2006, Dan and his brother Curt started S& S Curbing, a family landscaping business. Dan loved spending time with his family, friends, and fellow firemen. He was an avid Moorhead Spuds fan, considering all four of his children were in sports year round. His favorite activities were hunting, fishing and supporting the Minnesota Twins, Timberwolves, and Vikings. Dan was always the first one to lend a helping hand, whether to build a deck for a friend or finish an addition. He was very passionate about his line of work and could often be found fighting fires on his days off. The Fargo Fire Department was his home away from home.
