What I remember most about brother Dan is with my kids he was very tolerant. When my kids were very young, he would always let them play and borrow any and all video games. I am thankful over the last years he would call so we could keep in touch. I am proud that he served in the Navy.

I am saddened to hear of Dan's passing. I remember the good times we all had as kids playing in the woods, gravel pit/pond and basement (pool and ping-pong). My condolences to all of the family.
