75 passed away Saturday, January 26, 2019 at his home in Oscoda, Mich., surrounded by his family. Daniel was born Daniel J. Macko on March 30, 1943 in Flint, Mich., to Elizabeth “Betty” (Larabee) and John Macko. He was adopted at age seven by Mary and Alexander Feckovic, and his name was changed to Feckovic. He grew up in Flint, graduating from Sacred Heart High School in 1962. Dan married his high school sweetheart, Beverley (Keely) on October 24, 1964. They raised three sons living in Flushing, Mich. He honorably served his country in the U.S. Army Reserve 1964-1970. In 1966 he went into partnership with his brother-in-law, Duane (Sonny) Witter in the vending business at Greater Flint Vending, which later became Carriage Town Vending. He retired from Carriage Town Vending in 2004, as President and major stockholder. Dan was also part-owner of The Giant Flea Market in Flint in 1980. He was a collector and loved a good bargain! He became known as “Dealin’ Dan.” He was a motorcycle enthusiast. He and Bev rode together for 40 years to such places as Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, The Great Smoky Mountains, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and many places in Michigan. He loved spending time with his family, camping and bargain-hunting for “items of questionable value”! He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Beverley, sons Keith (Kathleen “Kat”) Feckovic of Lansing, Daniel Feckovic, Jr. (Yvonne Stevens-Feckovic) of North Port, Fla., and Paul Feckovic (Kim Swanson) of Oscoda and “adopted son” David Draper of Oscoda.
