Daniel Sean Scullion

Daniel Sean Scullion, of Prior Lake, passed away unexpectedly the morning of Sunday, January 6, 2019 at the age of 30.  A Gathering of Family & Friends will be held on Friday, January 11, 2019 from 4:00 – 7:00 PM with a remembrance service at 6:30 PM at Ballard-Sunder Funeral & Cremation, 4565 Pleasant Street SE in Prior Lake. Pallbearers will be Nick McKinney, Brody Haugen, Brad Wallace, Garrett Eich, Max Roleff, Adam Evenstad and Tanner Moncur.

On July 21, 1988 Daniel was bornin Virginia Beach, VA, to parents Lori and Daniel Scullion. From the start, Dan had an adventurous spirit. No matter the season, Dan could be found outside—dirt biking, snowmobiling, or fishing. He loved growing up in Prior Lake with his sisters. As a family, they took many camping trips.

Dan began working after his high school graduation in 2006. He worked at FlexMation, Goodyear, and often did smaller jobs like snowplowing and yard care. Like his step-father, Dan was mechanically inclined. He always had a project or two in the works. If his friends or family needed help with their own projects, Dan would willingly lend a hand.

In October 2017, Dan proposed to Dani Eng, his high school sweetheart. Dan was always affectionate and romantic. Dani never had a shortage of homemade gifts and cards from Dan. The best chapter of Dan’s life began with the birth of his son, James. They were two peas in a pod! Dan enjoyed every moment with James and was an exceptional father.

Nearly every night, Dan would have a bonfire no matter if it was by himself or with friends. He enjoyed being with other people, grilling, and listening to country music, especially Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson and George Straight. Dan was always smiling and had an uplifting personality.

Dan is loved and missed by his mother, Lori (Terry Hanson) Haugen; father, Daniel Patrick Scullion; fianceé, Dani Eng; son, James Scullion; siblings, Carla Carlquist, Carrie Legler, Cristy (Ryan) Mullin, Marie Haugen; other loving relatives and friends.

Dan is greeted in Heaven by step-dad, Gary Haugen, and his grandparents.

    Daniel, my heart hurts that we didn’t keep in touch very much after we moved to Louisiana. Watching you and seeing your family grow through Facebook made my heart so happy for you. Some of my favorite childhood memories have you in them; like that one time me and Marie took your pocket knives to kindergarten and we thought we were going to get kicked out of school lolol. We stayed in your room playing Nintendo 64 and you always always let me play but you kicked her out I took Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone from your room and now it’s one of my favorite books. I always admired you. I will always be sad that we never got together as adults, to laugh and hug and talk about old memories. I know they weren’t always the sweetest, but I wouldn’t change a thing about us all growing up in your mom and dads house together. I love you and I’ll cherish every memory ❤️

  12. I remember Dan and always will. I knew him living in Prior Lake. Dan was energetic and full of life as a teenager. When anyone hung out with Dan they would laugh and laugh until your stomach hurt. I had the delight of seeing Dan this last summer and I won’t forget it, a stand up man he turned into. I am forever grateful that I had a chance to get to know him. My thought and prayers go out Dan’s family and friends. Forever he will be loved and missed.

  13. Dan and I rode motorcycles together, along with Nate, Max, & Garret, Dan was a real cowboy, only cowboys don’t ride horses anymore, Dans choice steed was a 2 wheeled 600cc sport bike, and he was a natural, pulling wheelies as if the horse just decided to rear his head, Riding with Dan and the guy’s that summer gave us a sence of commrodery, we were brothers on 2 wheels, it was the best summer of my life, Dan always had our backs, and we had his. We watched out for each other and wreckless drivers on 4 wheels. Life
    Will never be the same without Dan but I’ll always remember his smile and his warm heart. He loved his friends and his family. To Dan Scullion, The only real cowboy I ever knew, this Coors is for you.

  14. To Daniel’s family & friends,
    I am so very sorry to read about your loss. May you find comfort in knowing that our heavenly Father truly loves you and cares about what you are going through. He will give you the strength needed to cope during this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4
