Dan Trant lived his life one day at a time, always giving the best he could in whatever he was doing. Throughout his journey he has touched every individual he has encountered and thus created a legacy of friendships that is endless. His commitment to each aspect of his life was genuine as he was. He knew how to love another and give of himself like no other. The way he had was most evident in his commitment to his family.
Dan’s wife Kathy and children Jessica, Daniel and Alex were the center of his life.
When men ask, what they can do for me I say, “be a Father, Husband and Friend like Dan Trant”. I will always love you Dan.
At the age of five, my father adopted me. At that time, he signed me up for soccer and basketball. My father has been my coach ever since.
My father worked with me on my skills, how to be a good winner, and a gracious loser. He taught me to be a team player and play within the team concept. He stressed to me, time and again, that winning isn’t everything. But he also taught me to work hard, and from hard work, you are always a winner.
My dad has been an inspiration to me in many different ways when it comes to sports. When I get upset about losing, he’s there to comfort me. When it comes to understanding sports, he’s there to explain it to me. When it comes to hugs, he’s there to hug me. To me, he is the greatest inspiration of all.
My Dad died on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. He was loved by many people and he loved many people. I remember him as the best husband, the best Dad, the best influence, and my best friend.
I know many people are sad that he is gone. But we can still remember him and see him in our dreams, our hearts, and our souls. Right now, he is saying to all of you, “be strong and I will be there right beside you and guide you when you have troubles”.
Don’t be scared, because my Dad is in Heaven with all good people, and once upon a time, we will be able to all go to Heaven and be with “Dan The Man”.
Daniel J. Trant
The best thing about my Dad is that he loves me and he loves his family. He is one of the nicest people I know.
He’s always there for me and he is always funny. My Dad is really good at sports.
When we went to the Bahamas, my Dad and I slept in the same bed together. We went on a mini cruise on a banana boat.
My Dad knows every theme song to every TV show. Whenever we put on a tune, within 5 seconds he knew what TV show it was from and knew all the words to the song.
Whenever I needed help with my schoolwork, my Dad was there to help me.
The most special times were when I would go to work with Dad. He would give me whatever I wanted because it was our special time together, the only time we could be alone together.
My Dad went to all my soccer games that he could. He would help me practice at home.
Sometimes, I would dress up and it would make Daddy laugh. He liked when I dressed like Britney Spears the best.
I love my Dad and miss him very much.
