Obituary for Daniel Lanning Moskowitz

Daniel Lanning Moskowitz of Lakeland, age 63, died September 15, 2017, under the care of Good Shepherd Hospice, after an 18-month battle with brain cancer.

Dan was born on Sept 6, 1954, in New York, NY. He graduated from American University where he earned a degree in Physical Education, and later obtained his Master’s degree in Education from the University of South Florida.

Dan loved the sport of wrestling and competed in high school and for the American University. After graduating from AU, Dan was on staff with Campus Crusade for Christ’s Athletes in Action team, traveling the world sharing his love for Christ and the sport of wrestling. He later taught school and coached for the majority of his career, retiring from George Jenkins High School in 2016. The first wrestling coach at George Jenkins High School, he never lost enthusiasm for the sport or the students that he taught and coached for so many years.

Wrestling also gave Dan many opportunities to share his love of God, whether it be traveling to wrestling camps with his team, mission trips or continuing as honorary AIA staff at the 1996, 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics. He was a member and elder of Christ Community Presbyterian Church.

He is survived by his wife, Allyson (Anderson) Moskowitz; three sons, David Theodore, Jacob, and Matthew; twin brother, David Moskowitz (Catherine); and many loving cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Irving and LeGrande Lanning Moskowitz.

A memorial service will be held on at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 20, 2017, at Christ Community Presbyterian Church, 6565 S. Florida Avenue, Lakeland, FL.
