Nashotah Professor Dies on Lake

From The Living Church-

The Rev. Daniel A. Westberg, professor of ethics and moral theology at Nashotah House since 2000, died Oct. 18 in a boating accident on Upper Nashotah Lake. He was 68.

“The Rev. Dr. Daniel Westberg was a faithful priest of the Diocese of Milwaukee whose gifts as a teacher were a blessing to us all,” said the Rt. Rev. Steven A. Miller, Bishop of Milwaukee. “Our hearts and prayers go out to his wife, Lisa, their family, and the community of Nashotah House at this sad time. We pray that Dan will go from strength to strength in God’s perfect kingdom.”

Born in Chicago to parents who were missionaries with the Evangelical Covenant Church, Westberg grew up in Japan. He became an Anglican during graduate medieval studies at the University of Toronto and served as a priest of the Anglican Church of Canada for 10 years. He was received into the priesthood of the Episcopal Church in 2001.
