Dan was graduate of Greendale High School who went on to earn his Accounting Degree from UW-Whitewater and his Masters from Kellogg School of Business at Northwestern University. He was president of the Central Market for Wheaton-Franciscan Health Care and was named to the Business Journal's "Forty under 40". Dan demonstrated a rare combination of exceptional relationship management skills, strong analytical abilities and an unwavering commitment to the mission and ministry of Wheaton-Franciscan Healthcare.
Dan loved life, whether it was time with family and friends, volunteering his time in the Greendale community or attending to his professional responsibilities. Dan was doing what he loved. As Dan will be missed by many people, we celebrate the fact that he is reunited with his grandparents, Richard and Doris Mattes and Walter and Shirley Hillmer.
In lieu of flowers, the Dan Mattes Scholarship Fund has been established to annually benefit a graduate of Greendale High School.
