Dec. 20, 1952 – Feb. 9, 2011

On Feb. 9, 2011, the wonderful artist and teacher Dan Kryston passed to glory after a short but brutal fight with pneumonia. He was preceded in death by his parents Josephine and Edward Kryston, and is survived by his only sister Karen Kryston and her partner Renae Miller; loving friend, Craig England; mentor extraordinaire and soul mate Susan Stauter; cherished friends: Cathy & Carol, The Gonzalez Family, Barbara, Bettina, Anne & Dave, countless others and, of course, his beloved pups Caln & Naya. He will also be missed by The Bachinski and Sewick families.

Dan was born on Dec. 20, 1952, in Chicago. There, he attended St. Bruno’s Grammar School and St. Ignatius Prep School, where he started his career in performing arts. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Regis College in Denver, did graduate work at UC Davis and got his Ph.D. in theater arts from Virginia Commonwealth University.

Dan had worked in professional theater, but chose to apply his considerable talents for the benefit of young people as a credentialed teacher. He taught in Colorado, Illinois, Arizona and California (Woodland, Sacramento and San Francisco). For the past several years, Dan received much acclaim for his work at Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts.

Dan was also a remarkable chef and restaurateur, owning the Windy City in Alexandria, Va., and co-owning Piaf’s Restaurant and Cabaret in San Francisco with his sister Karen.

For more information on Dan’s career and accomplishments, please visit his webpage at http://obit.duggans-serra.com.

Friends are invited to attend a High Mass in honor of Dan on Saturday, March 12, 2011, at 1:30 p.m. at St. Dominic’s Catholic Church, 2390 Bush St. in San Francisco.

In lieu of flowers, Dan’s spirit will continue to encourage students to strive to be their best through the Dan Kryston Scholarship Fund, 236 West Portal Ave. No. 844, San Francisco, CA 94127 or at http://www.fosota.org.
