I knew Dan briefly for the 4 years I was Managing Director of Chicago Dramatists where he taught a popular screenwriting class. I am sorry to hear of his passing. He always made me smile. My thoughts are with Dan's family and friends.

I am dismayed over the passing of a dear classmate from St. Thomas Grade School. Dan was good person. His mother Rita Conway and my mother Bernie Riehl were the best of friends. His passing is an end to an era for me. Peace and Serenity be with you, Dan

To the Conway family: it was a pleasure to know Dan as my father's next door neighbor, who gave me great advice as I started my first job at Universal Studios! I was 21 and just starting my career. To complete the arc of the story, I hired Dan as an recurring actor for the tv series "Turks" that I produced in Chicago for CBS some 15 years later!
