Daniel Paul Doles, Jr., of Palatine. Daniel passed away on October 3, 2012, after a very tough battle with lung cancer.

He was born on March 2, 1952, to Elizabeth "Betty" and the late Daniel P. Doles, Sr. Danny was very active in sports and loved to be involved in family gatherings. Recently he became a member of the Knights of Columbus and was looking forward to getting involved in their many activities.

A loyal Bears fan, Daniel would enjoy getting together to watch the games with family members. His "one-liner jokes" will be missed. Daniel past employment included Kehe and DPI Specialty Foods. He was a Boy Scouts leader, a soccer and baseball coach. He also played soccer and referred the games.

Daniel is survived by his wife, Kathleen "Katie"; sons, Jeffrey (Jill) and Daniel III (Marla); grandchildren, Isabella "Bella" and Jimmy; mother, Elizabeth Doles; brothers and sisters, Gary (Mary), James (Mary), Billy (Kelly), Dorri (Mark) Hauser and Cathy Flanagan; and 19 nieces and nephews.

Dan Doles was a great friend of mine and we grew apart and stopped contacting each other over so many years. But today when I heard the news that a dear friend of mine was dead my heart was broken because when I think of Danny all I can think of is his zest for life his intelligence, curiosity and that subdued grin. Gary and Mrs. Doles please accept my deepest sympathy at the loss of such a unique and loved son and brother. Kevin Pennick - Scottsdale, AZ
