The Northeast News has learned that former Editor of The Northeast News, Dan Ascheman, 49, passed away on December 4, 2023. Dan served as Editor of the paper in 1999 and 2000. Born on June 26, 1974, Dan was best known for his sense of humor and fantastic laugh. With a love for fierce debate and adventure, Dan could engage and befriend anyone who crossed his path. Dan’s life was filled with amazing friends, music, and a robust career. He loved playing and coaching football. Dan worked hard, with the help of his loving parents, to battle his medical and mental health challenges and focus on his faith.
