Dan was a big man with even a bigger heart. Dan's house was behind my house when I was a child and the one thing that come to me when I think of Dan is how much he loved to sing every morning. He made up his own song about no more rice crispy's. If you lived with in 10 houses of his you could hear him sing. We will all miss you. Go Blue.

I’ve known Dan for about 40 years when he coached my sons baseball team thru federation baseball. Then later for 20 years working together in same department at General Dynamics. He was always a fair coach to all the kids on his team and taught them well.

Thru baseball my son became best friends with another player on the team Jeff who became his best friend and whose sister became his wife. I also watched his son DJ and daughter Laurie grow through the years.

What a pleasant surprise when I joined General Dynamics I got to go work with Dan daily. After my husband was diagnosed with brain cancer and passed, he talked to me every day to cheer me up and helped me thru that horrible time.

Rest In Peace Dan and May God watch over your family.

Dan's passing is such a big loss to his GD family. Dan was generous, kind, down to earth. He loved his family fiercely and his laughter filled everyone with joy, even on the most trying of days. The DeBellis family sends our deepest condolences to the Hill family.

The Hill Family,
So sorry to hear of your loss. Playing and being coached by Dan was some of my favorites parts of growing up. What he taught me is a big reason that I went on to coach my own kids.
Thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family.
