Daniel John Pastorek, age 68, of Rossford, went to be with The Lord on December 20, 2018, after a long battle with dementia. He was preceded in death by his brothers, David and Douglas Pastorek, and his parents, Frank and Agnes (Badik) Pastorek. Surviving are his children, Rachel (Aaron) Getzinger and Timothy Pastorek; grandchildren, Eli and Emma Getzinger.
Dan loved life and had a passion for fun and adventure. He graduated from Cardinal Stritch, attended the University of Toledo, and served in the U.S. Army Reserve. He was an avid bike rider and enjoyed discovering new places. He was a skilled handyman and had a passion for cars and boats. He was happiest when out on the water on his boat with his family and friends.
The family is most appreciative of the many acts of kindness by the caring staff at Heartland of Waterville, and Heartland Hospice.
