Mr. Daniel John Aguilar passed away Monday morning at his home in Butte. He was born in Butte November 20, 1934 to Juan and Petra (Ortega) Aguilar and attended local schools. Daniel married the love of his life, Havre native Mary Rita Valladolid in Butte on May 7, 1952 and together they worked very hard to raise their six children. Daniel worked most of his life in the mines in Butte until retiring and then went to work at the Berkeley Pit for open pit mining. Dan thoroughly enjoyed his family and readily took over after mom's passing. Babysitting, picking up and or dropping off to preschool, grade school, and yes even high school. Shopping for school clothes, diapers and Birthday gifts became his ritual. Dad enjoyed nothing more than sitting in his chair with his eyes closed holding a baby and listening to the kids play at his feet or play on the trampoline, ride their bikes, and play basketball or football (that includes the girls). He wanted nothing else to have a happy house full of his grand kids! Dan was the sole survivor of his generation of his brothers and sisters, marking the start of a new generation!
