We have lost a visionare colleague. And a dearest friend.

Dan Koon

Dan was the proudest and most devoted of dads, an adoring husband and best friend, a loving son and brother, a favorite uncle, a committed colleague, and the dearest of friends to so, so many people whose lives he touched. Daniel attended SUNY Potsdam, graduating in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science in Math and Physics. He was a fraternity brother of The Order of Prometheus at SUNY Potsdam, where he formed many lifelong friendships.

Professionally, Dan worked for Caliber Imaging and Diagnostics, Inc. (now VivaScope GmbH), for over 20 years, rising to the position of Vice President of US Operations. His time at Caliber included a year living in Munich, Germany, where he and Marybeth welcomed their first son, Benjamin. One of Dan’s most valued experiences at work was traveling and meeting people abroad. He held so many colleagues dear to his heart and went to work every day with integrity, commitment, and a work ethic hard to match.

Through the Penfield School District where his sons attend school, Dan served as an Assistant Den Leader for Pack 80. He was heavily involved with the Pinewood Derby, pack meetings, and den outings. He cherished every one of these experiences with his sons, Ben, Ethan, and Sam. He went on to become an active and devoted parent volunteer for Boy Scout Troop 312, enjoying many camping trips with Ethan and making so many friends in the Scouting community.
