Dan (aka Turbo) was my friend on BCAN. He always had something positive to say, support to offer others even while facing his own illness. We were told he lost his battle. I like to believe he won the battle for four years. Dan will be missed.

I was blessed to have met and worked with Dan for a number of years. Dan was a consumate professional who always acted with complete integrity, humanity and humour. We shared many laughs and achieved much together. A true gentlemen in every sense. Rest in peace. My deepest condolences.

Dan, you left me too early, we still had so much to do. I know this is Gods plan and someday it will all make sense but right now my heart is broken. Together we've been on many journeys, we laughed and we cried. We became one person if that's possible. Life was easy. Our greatest journey was your last one you endeavored. You stayed strong throughout your difficult fight. You began troubleshooting your illness and you knew what was happening from the moment we received your diagnosis. Yes, troubleshooting. I've heard that memorable word throughout our marriage.
Thank you for introducing me to a life that most people can only imagine. All the wonderful memories, travels and people we have met on the way will live in my heart forever. The outpouring of love that was shown during the past week from people we just met, to lifelong friends, your co-workers, our priests, medical staff and yes, even our maintenance and complex staff but most of all, the beautiful family we have. You would be so proud. Everyone who met you, loved you. You will be with me always, now you can finally get a full nights rest. You deserve it. Love you always, Lilly.

Dear Lily and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Danny's passing. I just recently heard that he was sick and that he was having Hospice care. By chance today, I just thought I would check the paper on line and saw the sad news. We have not been in touch in years, I know, but I still have fond memories of us as children.
Your cousin Patty and husband Tom Adams of Marblehead
