About Dan Oppenheim, Jr.

Dan Oppenheim, Jr. was born on July 14, 1970 to Danny and Becky Oppenheim. He graduated from Valley High School in 1988, followed by Simpson College in 1992 where he was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity.

As an owner and top salesman at Farm & Home Builders for eight years, Dan commanded the respect and admiration of this peers. He was an avid sports fan, particularly fond of horse racing, baseball, basketball, football, and golf.

Dan was an amazing father to sons Daniel and William, and he eagerly awaited the birth of his third son, Bobby (born in April, 2004). He shared a true love, often rare, with his wife of seven years, Susie.

Dan will be remembered as a generous, loyal friend with a kind heart. He had a charismatic personality and a wonderful sense of humor that could be exhibited by a shy, dimpled smile or a belly laugh that made us all adore him. Forever, he will be missed.

Dan passed away on January 26, 2004.
