He was born July 25, 1978, in McMinnville, Oregon, to Lewis and Brenda (Leach) McKune. He graduated from 12th grade at Warrenton High School.

Dan did housekeeping at Best Western in Seaside, Oregon, drawing, photos, maintenance/housekeeping at Gearhart By the Sea. He also did side jobs with his dad.

He created beautiful drawings, and enjoyed writing stories, putting together scrap books and helping those less fortunate. He loved his family so much. He also loved waterfalls, music and movies, and could tell you all about a movie from the start and all the stars in it. As a sister said, he was a stylish guy. He was a jack of all trades, and wonderful at all of them. He was so loved and will truly be missed.
