Dan was born March 21, 1973 to Dr. Daniel and Nancy Sollee of Colorado Springs, Colorado; he graduated from Mitchell High School in Colorado Springs. As a young boy & throughout high school his love for the outdoors and sports were apparent, as Dan excelled at baseball, basketball and football playing at the varsity level in high school. He went on to earn his bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. During his time at CSU, Dan was active in Sigma Nu fraternity, where he created lifelong friendships. During college at CSU Dan started working at The Sundance Steakhouse and Saloon, staying there many years, enjoying his free time in his beloved mountains and again creating lifelong friendships with his co workers as well as meeting his wife Meg. Later, Dan worked in home building as a superintendent, with Keller Homes in Colorado Springs, CO and recently Richmond American Homes in N. Colorado.

He was involved with everything they did, never missing a single one of Ashton’s dance recitals in 13yrs, coaching their sports teams, golfing or fishing with Quinn and just spending time with his family was his focus. Dan was always at home in Colorado. He loved being outdoors,skiing, biking, golfing, camping, hiking and spending time in the mountains, as well as watching his beloved Yankees & Duke basketball.
