|Remembering Ivan Dahl|
Ivan J.K. Dahl, professor emeritus, educational foundations and research, died unexpectedly March 23 at his home in Fountain Hills, Ariz.
Dahl, the son of Ivan and Mae Dahl, was born Aug. 25, 1930 in Milton, N.D. He earned his undergraduate degree in education at Mayville State College, his master's degree at Indiana University, and his doctoral degree at the University of North Dakota. He taught in the education department until his retirement from UND in 1997.
Dahl was very proud of his family. He loved to golf, was an avid reader, and enjoyed politics, but most of all he cherished the time he was able to spend with his loved ones.
He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Mary; their two daughters Elizabeth (Jim) Dunlevy, and Katie (Denton) Mack; and four grandchildren.
Funeral services were held in Fountain Hills, Ariz. A memorial service and burial will be held in June in Grand Forks.
