    I am so fortunate to have been life long friends with Danny. He was one in a million. Passionate, kind, informed, current, honest and warm like a lotta guys find it hard to be. He listened. He knew what you needed to hear and you trusted his word. ...  more

    While I haven’t shared a lot with Dan the few times were memorable. Dan is a man, a person, we should all hope to be. You will be missed by many.

    Danny was a long time member of the Preferred Liars Golf League. He loved being with the guys every Thursday. If he shot a 50 or a 38, his smile was the same. He thoroughly enjoyed the “competitive golf” but enjoyed the round recaps even more at the...  more

    Dan was one of our very first friends that we made when we moved here in 1986, the other being Mary. It’s been a lifetime of shared joys, sorrows and humor. I loved Dan’s intellect - he was a real history buff and taught me a lot that I didn’t...  more

    Uncle Dan was the absolute best. “The Big H!” he’d yell when he’d see me, always just genuinely happy to be wherever he was. “How’s my alma mater doing?” was his way to ask how Dani was, he loved that they shared a name. If you ever played...  more

    I don’t have the words to express how heartbroken I am to have lost Dan, and I don’t know what life will be like as an only child without him, but I do know I have been incredibly lucky to call him big brother and I will cherish our memories forever.
