Danny Lee (Dan) Foreman, born on September 12, 1934 to Laurence E and Flossie C Foreman in Laramie, Wyoming, passed away September 11, 2019, one day shy of his 85th birthday, in Cedar City, Utah. He was raised during The Great Depression and World War II. Dan graduated from Laramie High School in 1953. After high school Dan went on to play farm league baseball for the Cubs organization. Dan married Peggy Jo May of Centennial, Wyoming, at which time he became employed by Frontier Airlines and moved to Colorado. Dan's employment with Frontier ended along with his marriage with Peggy in 1967. Three children were born of this marriage Peggy Leigh, David Laurence, and Dana Lynn (deceased).

Dan moved to Phoenix, Arizona and went into the retail food business in 1970. He married Maureen Myers Hunt at this time and was baptized into the LDS church. They were sealed in the LDS temple in 1974. They moved to Beaver, Utah in 1975 and took over the operation of the Black Steer Steakhouse. Dan was well known as a great chef and people came from far and near to have a steak prepared by him. They were later divorced, two children were born of this marriage, Dan Dan and Leslee. He sold out of the Black Steer in 1985 and leased the Best Western Paradise Inn. He renamed the restaurant to Dan's Garden of Eat'n. Bobbie joined as his partner in the restaurant and they ran it together successfully for 14 years. Many people were taught the value of hard work by Dan and often times returned to thank him for teaching them and helping them secure employment in the future. Dan and Bobbie enjoyed a wonderful working and personal relationship and were married on January 4, 2000. From this marriage Dan gained 6 children, Jeana McMullin, Duke Murdock, Sidney Murdock, Keith Campbell, Jodi Willden and Cameron Campbell. Dan became a father figure to these children. Due to deteriorating health he gave up the lease on the restaurant and retired to his kitchen at home. Dan and Bobbie enjoyed traveling to many places but especially to Mesquite, Laughlin and Las Vegas Nevada. They enjoyed a wonderful marriage up until the very end. Bobbie has been his true love companion and he will wait for her to join him once again.

Dan lived in several states and served each community in various ways. He received the President's Award for the Grand Junction Jaycees 1958 and Key Man Award in 1959. He was president of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club. Dan was Charter President of the Santa Fe, New Mexico Sertuma Club, member of St George Lions Club, Beaver Chamber of Commerce, Beaver Lions Club and Cedar City BPOE. Dan had a great love for many sports with the Utah Jazz being a favorite and instilled a love of the NFL into his kids and grandkids. He loved to collect clocks, coins and trains.

Dan is survived by his wife Bobbie Foreman of Beaver, Utah, 10 children, 17 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren. Dan is preceded in death by his parents, two brothers and one daughter.

The family wishes to thank Amber, Mary, Becki, Mel, and all of Beaver Valley Home Health, Dr.'s Rhett and Roger Smith, and Paul Eliason for all of their care and compassion shown to Dan. And a very special thank you to granddaughter Hayven Willden for her unwavering love and constant care for grandpa Dan during the good and bad times the last few years. Hayven always had a way to bring a smile to grandpa's face.
