Dana married Thelma Warwick from Napinka on February 7, 1970. He continued with municipal work, married life and farming for 2 years when his brother Mark came home to work together on the family farm. When the boys lost Trav in 1996 they forged ahead working hard to maintain and grow the farm business.
