November 5, 1969 - February 15, 2021
Daniel (Dan-Dan) Koratich Jr. Of Euclid, Ohio, born November 5, 1969 to proud parents Daniel and Darlene Koratich, passed away in his home on February 15, 2021. Dan was a fighter from the start requiring multiple surgeries at a young age and throughout his life which he conquered with tremendous strength and grace. As a child he quickly formed a close bond with his mother and her loss marked the beginning of a courageous life with epilepsy. He overcame many mountains throughout his life and did so without complaint. The Star Wars guru, Lego enthusiast, comic and game loving man found himself at home in many places as he was one to love and was easily loved in return. Whether it was at Omni Board Game Parlor, a family gathering, or a drop by call or visit that continued for 15 minutes as you were halfway out the door - Dan’s infectious smile and radiating love shined through. Dan found joy in spending time with both children and dogs - perhaps because he was a self-proclaimed kid himself – and his nieces, nephews, and cousins never tired of spending time with him. He fiercely loved his family and friends demonstrating his loyalty and affection by never forgetting to celebrate a holiday or birthday without a call or a visit. Living independently, he was never alone as he found his place working side by side with his dad. The duo found balance amongst the arguments and laughter and lovingly worked together for many years as “father” and “sidekick”. He is survived by his father Daniel Sr., stepmother Janet (nee Bernot), sisters Denise Nader and Julie Koratich, brothers Joe Koratich, and John Koratich, and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. He is preceded in death by his mother Darlene Koratich (nee Dowlin), maternal grandparents, paternal grandparents and his brother-in-law, Eli Nader. A man of many words, the biggest smile (and grip!), and the deepest kindness will be profoundly missed by those blessed to have had him in their lives. 🖖 Live long and prosper Dan. Family will receive friends on Saturday, February 27, 2021 from 2pm till 5pm a funeral service will be held at 3:30pm at Monreal Srnick Funeral Home, 35400 Curtis Blvd, Eastlake OH 44095. In lieu of flowers the family kindly requests donations to the Koratich family or Epilepsy foundation in Dan’s memory.
