I'm in total disbelief ... I knew Dan for years— mostly from work. We talked often about how much he loved his wife, Jana, and how very deeply he loved his family - and those wonderful grandkids - how much they ALL meant in his life. He was so proud and happy. He loved all of you so much.

Even though the grief in your loss is beyond words now, please know that the tears of missing his presence now will fade and embrace a peace with the treasured memories forever in your heart.

I remember when you became my little cousin! All the Johnson grandkids were girls until you!

I will never forget how funny you were or how ornery you could be! You were fearless as a child and grew into an amazingly loving, compassionate and caring man.

I'm so sorry we, as your family didn't see the amount of sorrow you felt. You will never be forgotten. You've left a legacy in your children and grandbabies.

Fly High Danny. Rest Peacefully and until we see each other again give my love to the Johnson Clan in Heaven.

I worked with Dan at the library for many years. Dan was just an awesome guy. He always helped my department with anything we needed, and he was always good for making us laugh. My mind is blown. He will be missed.
