He graduated first in his class from Matawan High School in 1956. He could have attended any college in the country but chose the University of Maryland because of the football program and to be close to his high school sweetheart Carol, back in New Jersey. After marrying in 1957 and starting a family in 1959, Dan began his career in the glass container industry, working for several companies until he retired in 2004. Dan helped start the Matawan Falcons Pop Warner football program, which he coached for 13 years. He also coached many other youth sports teams. He was a Matawan Husky thru and thru and was a member of the Hall of Fame there, as well as the Sports Hall of Fame of New Jersey. Later in life Dan took an interest in the Saint John Vianney Lancers girl's softball and basketball teams. He was made the official "Dan the Fan" of the softball teams. Dan loved coaching, watching, supporting and following the lifelong successes of all the players. Dan is survived by his loving wife of 63 years Carol (Seaman) Vanderbilt, two sons Daniel and Darryl, their wives Robin and Lisa, as well as three grandchildren who he cherished, Daniel, Sarah and Mathew.
