Daniel Joseph Foxhoven, was born February 27, 1954, to Charles and Betty Foxhoven of Wynot, he was the 3rd

grade at Cedar Catholic in Hartington. After transferring to Wynot as a sophomore Dan graduated from Wynot High School in 1972. Dan attended Northeast Nebraska Technical Community College in Norfolk for building construction. After working several major construction projects around the United States, he attended National College in Rapid City, South Dakota where he graduated with honors as a CPA in 1989. While working as a CPA in a Denver firm, he attended The University of Denver, where he graduated with a Masters in Tax in 1990 and then started his own accounting firm.
Dan has always displayed a great passion and excelled at anything he was involved in. In his youth he was an avid hunter and fisherman, having snagged many a paddlefish that was longer than him. He rebuilt, owned and operated the Toadstool Bar in Fordyce in the mid 1970’s. The same passion was in play for years in his backyard greenhouses that he used to feed his entire Denver neighborhood. He also funneled that passion into his own accounting firm that turned into a very successful business. As a fitness fanatic, he spent several hours daily in his basement gym.
Dan was a devout Catholic attending Church of the Risen Christ in Denver. Family meant a great deal to Dan. He never missed his weekly phone call to his mom. If you sent him a letter, card or photo it stayed on display in his house for years.
