Daniel A. Grant, 77, of Winona, Minn., passed away peacefully in his home on Saturday, October 27, 2018, surrounded by his family. Dan was born in El Paso, Wis., to Patrick Henry and Thelma Grant. Dan was born into a large family. In 1980 Dan married Kay Lee Mandelkow and they later divorced. In 1998 Dan met Carol Johnson and in September 2000 they married. Dan was a truck driver for many years and drove truck for numerous trucking companies before he finally had to retire due to health reasons. He loved to read, listen to music and spend time with his grandchildren. Dan was a diehard Vikings fan. If the game was on he was watching it, and shame on you if you got in the way.
