Dan Ewer was a lover of life, a dedicated husband & father as well as the greatest facilitator of fun this world has ever known. No one could put people at ease like Dan could. He was a mentor,  coach, motivator and professional instigator. His quick sense of humor kept everyone laughing and entertained. Dan the Monkey Man impacted so many of us and his departure leaves a gigantic hole in our hearts.

Dan suffered a freak bicycle accident while riding on one of his favorite routes on the Burke Gilman trail in Seattle. He suffered spinal and brain injuries that even this tough SOB couldn’t overcome.  After a week of fighting these lopsided odds, Dan now rests in peace. 

Dan is survived by his wife Bonnee, daughter and son-in-law Ellie & Nate as well son TJ, his sister Ann (Gary) Durham and brother John/Jake/Jack. Dan & Bonnee  are proud grandparents to Mila & Bohdi.

We’d like to thank the Burke Gilman trail bystanders who heroically administered CPR and called 911. Their efforts  gave us a few extra days with this amazing man. We’d also like to encourage your support of the Christopher Reeve Foundation https://www.christopherreeve.org/  We need more research into what can be done for catastrophic spinal injuries.

In lieu of flowers, Dan would be ecstatic if you supported his favorite cause - Boys & Girls Clubs of America. https://www.bgca.org/
