Daniel was born October 26, 1948, to Jesse L. and Patricia (Callahan) Morris. He attended St. Jude's Catholic School and Havre High School, graduating in 1966. Dan attended the University of Montana in Missoula for a short while before relocating to the west coast. He was employed with Airborne as a package delivery driver for a number of years and was also employed with Integrity Plus, a social and welfare service in Portland. He also enjoyed bartending at various establishments.

Dan loved all sports, especially baseball, and was an avid New York Yankees fan. He played ball on several leagues while growing up in Havre and continued to play softball in Portland in his earlier years. Dan always scheduled his annual visits to Havre around the various ball tournaments that Havre would host. In later years, Dan continued his love of baseball as a spectator, attending professional baseball games and traveling annually to Arizona for the major league spring training camps. He looked forward to these trips, and he attended as recently as March 2019.

Dan was blessed with many, many friends, and he also continued a close relationship with his childhood friends throughout his lifetime. He will truly be missed by his friends and family.

Dan was preceded in death by his, father Jesse, in 1975; his favorite brother, Jack "Jinx" in 2016; sister-in-law, Susan Morris, in 2013; and his good friend Art Wehy in 2017.

He is survived by his mother, Patricia Morris; sister, Beth (Dave) Rucinsky; nephew, Jess (Liz) Lohse; and niece, Natalie (Herminio) Bautista. He is also survived by two great-nephews, two great-nieces, and numerous cousins.
