October 30, 1960 – May 9, 2024

Dana is survived by wife of 44 years Becky, sons Paul (Laurie) and Matt (Andrea), grandchildren Noah, Nicole, Amelia, Noelle and Makenna. Parents Joan (Bob) Day and Richard (Marlene) Marchus and Sister Jill  Seeley.

Dana was a dedicated husband, father and papa, who treasured his family and friends. He had an infectious smile, laugh and sense of humor. Dana was born in North Hollywood, then spent his younger years in Northern California. He and Becky moved to Tucson in 1981, for better opportunities for their young, growing family. He spent the last 35 years building a family landscape construction business, where he got to work along side his sons, wife and daughter-in-law. When he wasn’t working on building the family business, he enjoyed spending time with the love of his life and best friend, Becky, they were inseparable! They participated in weekly bible study groups for over 20 years, and both knew Jesus. Grocery shopping or any errand they were together, even while he was working in his garage on his motorcycle. They recently started taking weekend rides around Arizona with their neighbors. During the summer months, he enjoyed boating on the lake or towing the grandkids around. The only other thing Dana loved just as much as Mexican Food and his family was his two Chihuahuas Coco and Candy.
The family business that Dana and Becky built works hard to create opportunities by providing a place for struggling individuals to work by partnering with Gospel Rescue Mission. Dana truly lived each day by his favorite verse.
Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”
Memorial Services will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2024 at 10am 12146 W Barnett Road Marana AZ 85653.
