I got to know my 2nd cousin, Dan, through Facebook and was struck by his sense of humor, determination and calmness when facing adversity. He was an amazing man.

Oh my gosh so many childhood memories. All the hide n seek, tag, Sunday's with all the cousins. All the long phone calls about cars, engine's and transmissions. Dan was a great kid that grew into an admired man. He had a heart of gold. He'll be forever missed in this family. So sorry for your loss Marlys, Maynard, Jeff, Denise, Shannon and Jamie❤️🙏👼
