Daniel Paul Fossey
September 14, 1954 ~ June 16, 2014
Daniel was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the youngest of six children to Douglas and Virginia Fossey. The family moved to Moab, Utah when Dan was a young child. Dan was the assistant superintendant of the road and bridge department for Ouray County.
Dan had three children, Jason, Elizabeth, and Sara by a previous marriage. Dan was married to Peggy Foster in 1994 and helped raise her two boys, Isaac and Tyrone Coleman.
Dan and Peggy moved to Ouray, Colorado in 1995 where Dan was the Public Works Director for the city for seventeen years before going to work at Ouray County. Ouray; its people, proximity to the mountains, and community was the light of his life and the recipient of his endless energy and love. Dan was preceded in death by his parents, brother John, sister Elaine, daughter Elizabeth, son Jason, and brother-in-law Dennis Foster.
