A BIG thank you to Julie and her girls for the love and care you gave to Dan. The last years were not easy but they were most special. Dan appreciated your efforts to keep him comfortable and at ease. We thank you and love you for all you have done. Wishing you comfort and peace at this time of sorrow.

My big brother Dan. I can hardly believe you are gone. Many memories flood my thoughts of the 53 years you have been my brother. Some fun childhood memories of tormenting our parents with repetitive songs on road trips alternating with arguments about who was on who's side of the back seat. The perennial debate about whether horses or motorbikes were better. When we unraveled a golf ball to see how long the elastic was inside and the odd time as teens you let me in your room to listen to your music. Somehow, your friends liked me around when they hung out but you weren't so keen about that.
After getting married, work and family life got in the way but we took time to celebrate birthdays and other occasions as a family and with 7 kids between our two families, there were lots of birthdays!!
There were a few years we didn't connect much but there was love and concern for each other there still. I'm so glad for the last two years I got to hang out with you regularly and go on a few outings. Especially the ones with mom or dad for their special days. I will treasure our last hug and your smile always. Forever your loving sister.

In the early 2000's I met and worked with Dan and Julie...people you instantly feel comfortable with and could confide in. Through the years Dan and (Steve Biro) were constantly by my side with the CISM/EAP. Being from the Fire service these guys were amazing and integral to keeping me on track. It's hard, and a blessing, when you look back on all those memories.

My first few years in the service - when I met Dan - I was busted broke and spent every penny I had on travel. One year I couldn't afford, or had credit for, car insurance. I simply rode my bike to work every shift and around town for errands.

One winter evening Dan saw me getting ready to leave with my rain gear on and asked what I was doing... I said going home in a depressed - fate accepting way. Dan simply said; "Just take my truck." I didn't know what to say... he said again - 'Just take my truck, do your errands - and pick me up in the morning.' Something so simple...followed by breakfast at Denny's in the morning.

Cheers Dan, to you and your chocolate milk.

It is very rare to meet a person as kind and good as Danny. He always had a way of bringing a smile to faces and will be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to have met him.

My sincere condolences to all of his family and friends.

It was Christmas Day and I was forced to work 16 hours. This was the first time in my life I hadn’t celebrated a portion of Christmas with my family and my dad stopped by to to give me a quick Christmas hug. After he left, I was in tears, but Dan was right there to wrap his arms around me. He held on to me and squeezed so tight and I will never forget that moment. I thanked Dan for years for that hug because I needed it and it was so comforting. That was Dan....so kind hearted, so compassionate, so loving and THE BEST HUGGER!! He was an amazing man and he loved with his whole soul. Hugs and prayers to his family and friends during this time, the world lost a great one!! RIP Dan and thank you for being you!
