     Dan was born April 20, 1958 in Jerome, Idaho to Dwayne and Norma Mackey Doramus. As a child the family moved to Kooskia where Dan grew up and graduated from Clearwater Valley High School March 29, 1980.

     Dan married his soul mate Deana Ulmer at the IOOF Hall in Kooskia. They moved around the state and as they moved their family grew. In 1980 while living in Boise their son Dwayne was born. They moved to Hailey, Idaho and in 1983 their daughter, Desiree was born. The family moved back to Boise.

     Dan and his business partner Kevin Jones operated a sprinkler installation company. He was very proud of the work they did. Dan’s dream of owning and operating his business had to be put to the side in 1996 when his mother became ill and he moved the family home to take care of his mom.

     His children were able to follow in his footsteps and graduate from Clearwater Valley High School. Dan, with Desiree by his side, loved to watch his son wrestle and was able to help coach his son and the other wrestlers. During the sports banquet at the end of the season Dan was able to present a video of the wrestlers during the season.

     Dan was known for his sense of humor and “one liners” that were sure to bring a smile and a laugh. He was proud of his family and especially his wife who he helped with her battle with cancer in 2005. His granddaughter and children meant the world to him.

     Dan had a passion for the outdoors. He loved to fish, camp and spend time with family friends. He was able to fulfill his dream of a 4-wheeler ride.

     Dan is loved and will be missed by all his family and friends. Dan is survived by his wife Deana, son Dwayne (Alexis) of Lewiston, daughter Desiree Doramus (Dave Hofmann) of Lewiston, granddaughter Izabell Doramus of Lewiston, sister Carol (Dennis) Ulery of Lewiston, brother Jerry (Trish) Doramus of Seattle, parents-in-law Lewis and Jean Ulmer of Kooskia, sisters-in-law Christy (Don) Owens of Kooskia, Betty (Donald) Gaeden of Central Point, Ore., and Sandy (Tim) Frisbey of Moscow and several nieces and nephews.
