Daniel Arthur Knudtson, 73, of Holmen, WI, passed away peacefully at Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse on January 29, 2021.

Dan was born in Sparta, WI to his loving parents, Chester and Vera (Ottoman) Knudtson. He married Debra (Esterle) and they were happily married for 35 years.

Dan is survived by his wife; mother; brother, Randy (Jane); one niece, Kristen (Nick); and two great nephews, Lucas and Drew.

He was preceded in death by his father and nephew, Jeffrey.

Dan was a kind and thoughtful man with a wonderful sense of humor, positive attitude, and a quick wit. He served in the Air Force, worked at the Holmen Post Office as a letter carrier, and later started his own appraisal business. He was also a life member of the American Legion in Holmen. There are many people who were fortunate enough to have shared good times with this wonderful man. We will all miss him.
