1932 ~ 2011

Dr. Daniel Morasch of Vancouver, WA, went home to be with Jesus on March 17, 2011. He died peacefully at home with his family. Dan was born in Camas, WA in 1932 and graduated from Camas High School in 1950.
Shortly after high school, he served as a U. S. Navy radioman in the Korean conflict.
Following his tour with the Navy, Dan attended Clark College for two years then transferred to the University of Washington where he graduated from Dental School in 1962.
In 2003, after 41 years of successful dental practice in Vancouver, Dan retired to spend more time with his family and enjoy the outdoors.
Dan loved to spend time with his family and friends especially on Murphy Lake in Canada as well as on the Washougal River in Skamania County. He loved the outdoors especially if it included fishing or working in his garden.
He attended Glenwood Community Church.
Dan was awarded the distinguished Clark College Alumni Award for Community Service and Accomplishments in 2004. One of Dan's proudest achievements was his co-founding of the Clark County Youth Football League. This organization has grown from 2 teams and 60 players in 1983 to its current 60 teams and approximately 1500 players. Dan also coached countless youth sports in the community including football, basketball, baseball, and softball. In 1998 he received the Nike Co-coach of the Year award from the Portland Trail Blazers and in 1999 was honored by the National Football Federation of the NFL. Dan served on the SW Washington Hospital Foundation Board, Clark College Foundation Board of Directors, Clark College Alumni Association Board of Directors, Day Break Board of Directors and was a strong supporter of Clark College Penguin Athletic Club. As a member of the Clark County Dental Society, Dan was involved in the research, promotion, planning and implementation of the Clark College School of Dental Hygiene Program.
Dan is survived by his wife of 42 years, Leah (Wilmart) Morasch; and his children, Dr. Mark Morasch of Chicago and his wife Gemma and their four children, Tammi Morasch of Vancouver, and Matthew Morasch of Vancouver and his wife Maureen and their two children.
