LOCKPORT —

Daniel Robert Stump, Jr., age 78, passed away on April 19, 2014 in Severna Park, MD after a long battle with Alzheimer's Disease. Dan was born and raised in Lockport, NY, where he loved to swim, spending many hours in the pool at the Lockport YMCA.
Dan held many swimming records while attending Lockport High School. He chose to continue his passion for swimming at North Central College in Naperville, IL.

Dan resided for the majority of his adult life in Olney.
After fulfilling his service requirement in the United States Army, he continued his career with a cancer research facility in Bethesda, MD. In 1978 Dan decided to change careers paths and moved into the emerging energy sector of solar energy. Dan always had a life-long dream to own his own business which he accomplished when he opened a snack-food distributorship in 1983 which he ran until he retired in 1998.
Dan is survived by his son, Timothy D. Stump; his daughter-in-law; two granddaughters; his brother; as well as aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Daniel R. and Katherine Stump; and his sister, Donna Vennard.
