My husband Gary knew him before their PO days. I met him when I went to work there and later Deb. Dan was a good person and could be a bit cantankerous when you tried to get him to go to the doctor , but we ALL have our moments. He loved his girls , grands, Cynthia and his two son In laws I will never be able to buy a scratch off that I don’t think about him! Night before last I started to text him something I heard and remembered he was no longer with us! Dan, Rest In Peace you are missed and thanked from the bottom of our hearts for the things you offered to do for us all these years!! You made us laugh, sometimes mad and when you decided to give up your job as Editor of The Rebel and it became my job you went out of the way to help me. Gary and I love you and we will stay in touch with your family!!RIP Chris and Gary Wheeler
