Daniel Edward Roscoe Driscoll was born March 9, 1949 in Gregory, SD to parents

Francis and Norma (Knapp) Driscoll. He graduated from Gregory High School with

the class of 1967. Dan then attended the University of South Dakota at Vermillion

and later attended Western Bible College in Denver, CO. On February 28, 1971 he

was united in marriage with Susan Evans in Vermillion, SD.


Dan Driscoll lived a life marked by God’s faithfulness and goodness to sinful man

and by the grace of God he was able to finish the race well. He will be

remembered for his steadfast service of his Savior, his love for the Word of God and his desire to see others

know Jesus and walk in the power of the resurrection. He was a loving husband to Susan and their children and



He loved horses as a young man in South Dakota and was known for his large

orange fro. As an old man he enjoyed woodworking and eating hot dogs, both of

which had unintended consequences.


Dan pastored many churches all over Iowa and while those left on earth to

remember Dan hold tight to the promise that “Precious in the sight of the LORD is

the death of His saints” we also know that he leaves a gap in the hearts of many

people whom he shepherded over the course of a life well lived.


Left to celebrate Dan’s life are his wife Susan; his children: Micah (Karna) Driscoll

of Valparaiso, IN, Rebekah (Dan) Frank of Boise, ID, Benjamin (Kelly) Driscoll of

Hazleton and Jessica (Katie) Driscoll of Denver, CO; his grandchildren: Serenity,

James, Enoch, Caspian, Helen, Josiah, Ella, Vani, Hannah, Emma, Benjamin,

Hunter, Gabriel, Madison and Jack; his sister Francie Johnson; his many nieces and

nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents.
