THE FIRST BELL HONORS WERE RENDERED FOR DANIEL TOSTEVIN

Daniel C. Tostevin was born in Cincinnati, OH. After graduating from high school in 1968, he enlisted in the US Navy. He served as a saturation diver and submariner for 28 years and was the recipient of several medals and commendations including two Meritorious Service Medals.

Daniel completed his service as the Commanding Officer of SubDevGru 1 Det Diving, NSB Bangor, WA and retired in 1996. He was a veteran of the Vietnam War and the Persian Gulf War.

After retiring from the Navy, Daniel began his second career as a Project Engineer with Ball Aerospace. He remained active with the Navy Diver community, attending reunions, and was an active member of the Rocky Mountain Submarine Base, USSVI. He volunteered many hours for Kaps4Kids and the Children’s Hospital of Colorado.

Daniel was the first recipient of Bell Honors on June 13, 2016. “It was a privilege for us to know that he would be receiving this honor,” Daniel’s daughter Tania, wrote. “We found it very symbolic that the Honor Bell was cast in the same city where Daniel was born and was present at his interment at Ft Logan National Cemetery. The Tostevin family is so so appreciative of our veterans and to know that Daniel is a part of the Honor Bell’s history is humbling.”
