I will always remember Uncle Dan for his warm smile, hearty laugh & great bear hugs. Our family time spent together on LBI was made even better with Uncle Dan’s root beer floats, games of pick up sticks and his famous line, “No Heehawing!” He was a gentle giant who will be greatly missed! Thinking of you all during this difficult time and sending my love with a great big Uncle Dan bear hug!
Love, Liza ❤️
