Daniel "Dan" Edward Major was born October 19, 1941 in Carlisle, Arkansas. He passed away peacefully with his family by his side on November 2, 2019. Dan was the oldest of four children. His family moved frequently in childhood, and he spent time living in several different states all across the country.

After graduating high school, Dan went on to earn a Bachelor's Degree from Kearney State College in Kearney, Nebraska. He held a major in History with a minor in German. With his education completed, Dan entered the United States Army in January of 1964 and served until July of 1967. Upon exiting the Army, Dan began a career in teaching in Wentzville, MO.
