The perishable has been clothed with the imperishable and the mortal with immortality, that which is written has come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. - 1 Cor 15

Daniel P. Kuban, went home to his Heavenly Father today.  Dan’s life was a blessing and inspiration to all who ever met him, whether it was in the boardroom or the slums of Mexico.  He spent his days in the moment, embracing life with a contagious enthusiasm, pointing out the small things, and teaching us of the big things.  Dan was many things through his life: husband, father, son, brother, papa, friend, engineer, inventor, businessman, mentor, teacher, and even the guy at the airport making balloon animals for children.  But most of all, Dan was a servant of Christ.  He lived out Matthew 5: “let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.”  All he was, and accomplished, must be viewed through the lens of his Savior – he sought His glory above all things, yearning for the Hope and Glory that is to come, and it is in this light that we will all remember him.  As D.L. Moody once remarked, “Someday you will read in the papers that I am dead.  Don’t you believe a word of it!  At that moment I shall be more alive than I am now.”
