M. Daniel McGee, 69, of Imlay City died Wednesday afternoon, August 8, at his home with his family at his side.

He was born March 23, 1938 in Pinnebog, MI to the late Martin and Marie (Gelnaw) McGee.

Dan grew up in Elkton and was a 1956 graduate of Elkton High School. After high school Dan joined the U.S. Army. When he returned he started driving truck for U.S. Plywood in Utica. Then in 1979, he became the lighthouse keeper at Presque Isle with his wife, the former Marianne C. Propp, retiring in 1995. That same year, he moved to Bradenton, Florida and opened a nautical store called The Lighthouse Keepers Closet. He operated it until just a few months ago when his health deteriorated.
