Daniel was one of seven children born to Daniel and Carmen Tostado in Ameca, Jalisco, Mexico on December 23, 1943. At the age of five years, Daniel and his parents permanently relocated to Texas and settled in Friendswood. Daniel grew up on a ranch and learned ranch life first hand. He attended elementary through high school in Friendswood, where he graduated with a class of seven students in 1962. He attended the University of Houston but wanted to serve his country at a time of great need, so Daniel enlisted in the U.S. Air Force. For a time, he was stationed overseas during the Vietnam War. He served honorably during his military commitment and always maintained respect and appreciation for his country, his fellow veterans, his family and his many friends.
Daniel eventually returned to his home town area and at one point followed in his father’s footsteps by managing an equestrian center and ranch. Later he pursued other business interests which included various sales/management positions in Houston and Dallas, serving many years in the heavy equipment industry.
Dan never met a stranger and had a passion for his family and friends. He lived a robust life, had a great sense of humor and loved telling a good story. While he did have a serious side, he will always be remembered for his laughter, generosity, and smiles.
Daniel and Janice are members of Sagemont Church in Houston and have many church friends as well as neighborhood friends.
