CASSILL, Daniel Dutch, celebrated author, died Saturday, February 22, 2014. From the first day of his thirty-four years of life, Dan's dynamic presence was felt by family, friends and an uncountable number of strangers. For example, his Aunt Ann was a recipient of the first of many golden showers as she changed his first diaper. His parents, Deby and Paul were recipients of different kinds of adventures as he grew from an infant to a young man. As an adult, Dan was a bit of a nomad. Born in Panama City, Florida in August, 1979, he moved to Tallahassee, Florida in 1980, and then to Tucson, Arizona in 2000, where he attended Apollo College. In 2002, Dan moved to St. Petersburg and worked for USF St. Petersburg. If you want to join in the adventures of his life, Daniel's book, an autobiography titled The Seinfeld Coma Kid's Amazing Afterlife, published one month before his death, is available on Amazon.com. 100% of royalties are donated to USF St. Petersburg. His family and friends of Bill W. are grateful to have known and loved this uniquely courageous man. His grace and humor in the face of incredible, death-defying challenges are his legacy. We the family, thank the staff and residents at Advanced Health and Rehabilitation for the fact that they adored him as much as we did. And so, as we say our good-byes to Dan-the-Man, we know he leaves us with his usual salutation, "It's all good." A Memorial Service will be held at ANDERSON MCQUEEN FUNERAL HOME, 2201 Dr. M. L. King Street N. St. Petersburg, FL on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. Dan is survived by his mother, Deby Cassill and, in age order, his aunts, Ann Hogan, Nora Akerberg and Lynn Akerberg; his uncles, Dan Hogan, Jon Akerberg and Lon Akerberg and his cousins, Casie Akerberg Kindl, Nick Akerberg, Clinton Akerberg, Chris Kelley and Alex Akerberg. www.andersonmcqueen.com
