Daniel Newton McIver was born on July 17, 1933, in Starbuck, to Dr. Bertrand and Gertrude (Johnson) McIver of Lowry. He graduated from Glenwood High School in 1951 and attended the University of Minnesota in agricultural studies. Following college, he operated a dairy farm near Farwell. He married Geraldine May Armerding in Wheaton, Ill., on Nov. 3, 1956. Together they raised five children, teaching them the values of family, hard work and faith in God.
In later years Dan worked as a sales representative for several dairy equipment companies, was self-employed for several years and in business, “Lowry Dairy Sales,” with his brother Paul. Dan’s sales philosophy was, “People don’t like you because you are sitting behind your desk, they like you because you are out there leaning up against their machinery talking to them.”
Dan enjoyed hunting, fishing, farming, church activities and had a special place in his heart for his family and children everywhere. A favorite memory is Dr. Bert bringing home the Sunday paper after making rounds at the hospital and together reading about the exploits of the Minnesota Gophers. He watched the first Vikings football game and has been an unwavering fan ever since.
Dan was devoted to his Lord and Savior, Jesus and had a passion for daily reading his Bible and sharing the Gospel message.
