Daniel Lee Moyer passed away on March 22, 2024 after a long battle with kidney disease. He was surrounded by his family and much love. Danny was born on September 21, 1951 in Portland Oregon. He was the first child of Marvin C Moyer and Glenda M (Sturdivan) Moyer. Dan was preceded in death by his parents and younger brother, Tommy. He is survived by his wife Jennifer, brother Ron Moyer and sister Connie Lemke (Dennis); sons Brian (Tesa) and Nathan (Lacey) and step-children Noel Kalthoff (Lisa) and Chrissy Strub (Mark); six grandchildren; Chandler Daniels (Robert), Andrew, Daniel, and Carter Moyer, Eleanor and Henry Strub. Daniel has two great-grandsons, Oliver Daniels and Owen Moyer.

Dan attended Reynolds High School and graduated in 1969. He was active in sports and played baseball and football. After graduation he attended Mt. Hood Community College and earned an Associate’s Degree in Civil Engineering. Employment with the State of Oregon Highway Department came soon after graduation. Dan left the state when he had an opportunity to work for the City of Lake Oswego. Eventually he went to work for the City of Portland, beginning with the Water Bureau where he was an Inspector on construction projects, most notably the well fields along Marine Drive. Dan was the last inspector to crawl the entire length of the Bull Run Water pipelines.

When work slowed at the Water Bureau, Dan transferred to the Portland Bureau of Transportation. He attained the position of Chief Inspector and oversaw projects like construction of Airport Way, renovation of Chinatown, and many other street and road projects.

Dan was very involved in the Masonic family. He was a Past Master of Fairview Lodge #92, a Past Patron of both Troutdale and Valiant-Sellwood Order of the Eastern Star Chapters. In 2008 he was the Potentate of Al Kader Shriners in Wilsonville OR. He was a member of the Al Kader Desert Patrol and an Al Kader Clown. He started a DeMolay Chapter in Gresham and served as the Chapter Dad for seven years. He was the Associate Guardian of Bethel #80, International Order of Jobs Daughters at the same time.

Hunting, fishing, camping, and traveling were the things he loved to do. Family time was very important to him.
