Sterling resident Dan R. Marsters died Friday, April 12, 2002, at his home in Sterling. He was 27.
Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Thursday at Abundant Life Assembly of God Church in Sterling. Pastor Bob Reasner will officiate.
Mr. Marsters was born April 25, 1974, in Susanville, Calif., at Lassen Memorial Hospital. He moved to Sterling in 1983. He had been an Alaska resident for 19 years, going to school in Soldotna and Sterling. He also was a member of the first Skyview High School football team. He was employed by Fairweather and worked as a mechanic for Enviroblast, APC and CIP and as a firefighter for the Division of Forestry.
"Dan loved fire fighting, hunting and fishing. He spent many hours with family and friends talking and visiting over coffee. He also spent many hours canoeing on the Moose River and fishing the Kenai and Kasilof rivers," his family said.
"In winter, he spent a lot of time cross-country skiing and snowmobiling, but the No. 1 thing was his love for his family. People who really knew Dan knew he was the type of person who would do anything to help out a family, friend or stranger, regardless of what they needed or wanted him to do for them.
"Dan spent many hours helping work on friends' vehicles. He was always there for his family when needed and spent many hours visiting family in the hospital. Dan is a wonderful man who is loved deeply and will be missed by friends and family alike. He will be in our hearts forever."
Mr. Marsters is survived by his parents, Everett "Larry" and Brenda Marsters of Sterling; twin brother, Don of Kenai; brothers Bart of Umatilla, Ore., Blake, Brett and Brian of Herlong, Calif., Buck of Aurora, Colo., and Monti of Seattle; sister, Kimberly Sellers of Thornton, Colo.; and several nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles and cousins.
