We are so sorry to hear about Dan. It has been a long struggle for you both.
We have fond memories of our days at IBM and being landlords together.
We pray that in the days ahead you can cling to all your great memories together and the knowledge that you will be reunited together in heaven.

Remembering Danny, a childhood friend, playmate and next door neighbour.

Danny was a very good friend of mine in our teenage years. I recall on a number of occasions he was good enough to take me along as a third wheel on some of his dates so that I would not be left home alone. I also recall the many activities we participated in together at Blair Church.

It was great to meet up with him and Marilyn again recently on a couple of occasions. I vividly recall at Angie's wedding I was sitting at a table and someone came up from behind and placed hands on my shoulders. Somehow, without turning around, I knew it was Danny. I also recall our interesting conversation at the Williams Cafe in Cambridge. My thoughts are with Marilyn and Sandy at this time.

Love, Ken

It has been a pleasure to know Danny. He and Marilyn were so inseparable that the names "Danny and Marilyn" were almost one. I particularly remember my visit to Danny and Marilyn's home in Tennessee. Danny's kindness and generosity were much appreciated. And I had fun hiking the hills of Tennessee with him and Marilyn. We had beautiful weather, and the autumn colours were spectacular. I remember, at the end of a hike, Marilyn, Doris and I were beat, but Danny RAN up a set of stairs to the top. Very impressive.

Love, Marie

As I write this my heart is heavy and my eyes full of tears. So many memories starting in Canada before the boys were born. Sandy learned to babysit with Mac, Danny teaching the boys to horseback ride. Birthdays at your house and Christmas celebrations. When we moved to Colorado you drove out to see us. (Do you remember Sandy leaving her purse behind????) Cameron will never forget falling in the river on our picnic in the mountains with Mom and Dad. When you moved to Tennessee we came to see you.... I remember our picnic on Lookout Mountain. Our backyard hosts a "See Rock City" birdhouse. I remember our fun dinner in downtown Chattanooga. You came to both of the boys weddings. I am so blessed to have you in my life. I am here for you all. I love you. Laurie

To Marilyn, Sandy and Bob and boys -
We have many special memories from many years ago in Cambridge, attending the same church, and Sandy attending the same school as our children. Danny always had a very relaxed, positive and pleasant manner, who loved his wife and family dearly. We also enjoyed phone calls, and getting together for dinner when they faithfully drove back to Cambridge to visit family and friends. We will miss Dan, and send our prayers to Marilyn, Sandy and Bob and boys as you grieve the loss of a husband and father and grandfather.

I will always remember those dinners at Cracker Barrel after church services. I am so thankful that I had you and Marilyn in my life and you were an important part of my years at Temple. You were my Canadian father and I will never ever forget you. I have always treasured your wise advice and I will miss you so much. Thank you for all that you’ve done and I look forward to seeing you again in heaven.
