Fr. Westberg’s most recent book was Renewing Moral Theology: Christian Ethics as Action, Character and Grace (InterVarsity Press, 2015). He co-authored Preaching the Lectionary (3rd ed.; Liturgical Press, 2006) with the late Professor Reginald Fuller.
It was exceedingly gratifying to have served as Fr. Westberg’s dean for ten and colleague at Nashotah House for twelve years. Dan had a brilliant mind and keen sense of humor. He had a quiet demeanor–a gentle man and a gentleman. As a professor, he was a friend and mentor who spent time with his students and truly cared about their spiritual as well as their intellectual formation. But, above all, he was a godly man who truly lived the faith he proclaimed. Dan’s tragic death is a great loss for Nashotah House. He will be missed by all who knew him, but especially by his wife Lisa, his father, a brother and three sisters, four adult children, and three grandchildren who survive him.
We commend our brother into the loving arms of God. May he rest in peace and may light perpetual shine upon him. Our prayers go out for Lisa and Dan’s family.
