Obituary for Dan C. Maitland

Daniel was born March 16, 1984, in Chicago, Illinois, at Holy Cross Hospital a very sick baby. Doctors told his mother, Pearl, he would not live past four years of age. Danny grew up in Princeton, MN, with his family. At age nine, Danny accepted Christ at VBS and was very excited to share the Good News with everyone. During many of his hospital stays, Danny would visit the other children whose parents were unable to stay, by playing video games or watching a movie to pass their time. He did not want them to be alone.

Danny loved basketball, skateboarding, riding his bike, and jumping off of everything high. Even if it meant tumbling down a ski hill, breaking a leg, cutting his fingers, twisting his ankle, or falling over the handlebars and landing on his face. He loved rides. The more they spun in circles the more he liked them. Danny rode the Graviton eight times in a row once and was dizzy for a week. Roller roasters were his favorite. If they were high and fast he was on it. He loved life.

Daniel attended schools in Princeton, Foreston, and Maitland Home School where he graduated high school and later attended St. Cloud Technical College for computer programing. He wanted to create the ultimate video game. Danny enjoyed the History Channel as well as National Geographic. He loved volunteering with the Special Olympics, advocating for blood drives, the importance of organ donation, and Support our Troops. Danny volunteered for various activities at church, and went on a Mission trip to Mexico. Service to God, community, and country were very important to Danny.

At age 21, he was put on dialysis and diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure. Danny would say “If a kidney does not come in time, it’s okay. Because I win either way. I get a new kidney, or I go home with Jesus.” Danny loved the life he had, loved his family, and loves people. His last breath would be Danny’s way. On Thursday, September 27, Danny took his last breath on earth and his first breath with Jesus.

He was preceded in death by his great-grandma and grandpa Maitland; great-grandpa and grandma Lyback; grandpa Skinny; great-grandpa and grandma O’Neil; and cousin Kate Maitland. Danny is survived by his parents, Reed and Pearl Maitland; sister, Samantha Severson (Jake, Skylar, Drake), and brother, Dylan Maitland; grandmothers, Sally Maitland, Nana Dupree, and Peggy Stephan; including the love of many uncles, aunts, cousins, and friends.
