Memorial services will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 17, 2005 at Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ. Family will receive friends 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Dunn's Funeral Home.

Daniel was born the son of David and Sharon (Kofoed) Weddle on December 17, 1965 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He grew up in Mount Vernon, Iowa and moved to Des Moines in 1998. After an extended courtship, Dan married Carol "CJ" Matthews on July 15, 2000. He was a devoted and loving husband and "father" to the couple's two dogs, Chauncey and Phoebe.

Dan was a partner at Davis Brown Koehn Shors & Roberts PC. He enjoyed practicing law, yet always found time to pursue his many interests and hobbies. He was a guitarist and songwriter who found great joy and inspiration in the music of the Beatles, Squeeze, and Wings. He was an excellent and competitive tennis player. He enjoyed hiking, fishing, boating, traveling and taking his dogs for long walks in Greenwood Park. A genuine, loving and kind person, he was dedicated and fiercely loyal to his family and friends.

Daniel is survived by his wife, Carol "CJ" Matthews of Des Moines; parents, David and Sharon Weddle of Woodland Park, Colorado; sister, Lisa Siebert (Chad) of Los Angeles, California; grandfather, Robin Weddle of Carter Lake, Iowa; parents-in-law, Lorn and Dorothy Matthews of Des Moines; brothers-in-law, Darren and Jeff Matthews of Iowa City; and grandfather-in-law, Larry Matthews of Des Moines.
