He was of the Methodist faith.
Following his 1979 graduation from Meadville High School, Dan began working at his dad's business, Rogers Plumbing. When his dad retired in 1998, Dan and his brother, Mark, took over the business until 2009 when Dan left the business after complications from surgery, with Mark continuing on for another three years. Dan volunteered with Big Brothers and Big Sisters where he was paired with his still close "little brother" Warren Marks. He was involved with CCYSA and CCYHA where he coached for many years. For five years he served as Bulldog Hockey Tournament Director. He was an avid Penguins fan. An outdoors man, Dan enjoyed snowmobile and ATV riding with his family. He also loved camping, fishing, archery and rifle hunting, be it large or small game. He enjoyed his trips to Wyoming where he successfully hunted two mule deer and trips to the "hunting camp" with family and friends. Dan loved looking after his hunting dogs and house dogs. He will be greatly missed.
