Dan A. Cozine , Age: 68
December 19, 1949 -- February 12, 2018

Daniel Alan Cozine, a graduate of Washington High School and lifelong resident of Wyandotte County Kansas, passed away on February 12, 2018 at the age of 68.

He had been an auto mechanic his entire life and the most “experienced” employee of Carriage & Motor Works (later renamed Empire Automotive) for over 30 years. Dan had a love of Alfa Romeos and had restored many over the years. His most recent, a 1964 Giulia Spider, has won a number of awards and was featured on televisions “My Classic Car”.

On any given day, you could find Dan “playing with plastic” in his hobby room. He was a respected master model builder, featured in modeling magazines, and won dozens of trophies over his years. He enjoyed the many friendships he made as a member and founding father of the KC Slammers model car club. An avid NASCAR fan, Dan built an impressive collection of NASCAR memorabilia featuring his favorite driver, Jeff Gordon.

Dan was predeceased by his parents Anne and Hal, his sisters Edith and Karen, and his wife Monica. He leaves behind his sister Margaret (Steve) Martin, his adopted sons, Mark (Amy) and Frank Cozine, his step children Veronica and David (Courtney) Shipley, his grandchildren Amber, Erica, Skyler, Constantine, and Raven, and his great grandchildren Xzavior, Damarion, and Auriella. Dan will be placed to rest next to beloved wife Monica.

Graveside services will be held on Wednesday, February 21st, 11:00 AM, at the Mount Calvary Catholic Cemetery (1150 N 38th St, Kansas City, KS). In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations made to the COPD Foundation (www.COPDFoundation.org).
