Dan was one of my 5 brothers. From the time my mom and dad, Ellis and Margaret Visger, brought me home as a newborn, it was Dan that was always giving me hugs, telling me he loved me, and kissing me on the cheek. He was so loving toward me. I am deeply missing him. We both shared a love of cooking and we talked all the time about recipes and how to make different types of dishes. He made many seafood dishes that I hadn't attempted, but he always told me about them. We both liked to write stories and would share our thoughts at times. He will be greatly missed.

Dan was and always will be one of my most favorite people in the world.
We were more than cousins, we were friends. You could never ask for more kind and loving friends than Dan and Lynn. They went above and beyond in love for us. He always made me feel better about myself or my situation just by his wisdom or sometimes funny comments. Always made me feel special. I dont think he even realized how much it meant to me. He seemed to call just when I needed him. Always made me smile or educated me with his wisdom. I loved him so much but find comfort knowing he's in Heaven just waiting for the rest us to get there.
Thank you Lynn for sharing this wonderful man. We love you loads.💕Ruthie & Everett

Dan was probably my best friend in the world. I have not been able to spend much time with him the last few years, due to family obligations, but we worked together for over 30 years, and spent time together outside of work as well.
He was one of the most intelligent, non college educated people I have ever known. Although he did have some college, like many of us that worked at the place we did, it merely helped us to become more rounded as human beings, which the job we did never could take away from us. I am heartbroken.

I was on duty at the Reference Desk at Hackley Public Library a few years back. This guy walks in to ask a question and we chatted a bit. Smart, funny guy. He then said he had to get home -- sharing in the sweetest tone that he had a beautiful woman to cook dinner for. Not knowing who he was, I told him he was a lucky man.

A number of months later, Dan knelt down on one knee on the main floor of the library right in front of the Circulation desk and asked Lynn to marry him. She was mortified, turned three shades of red, and said "yes"! Memories we all have to hang on to...

My dad was an incredible father, best friend, confidant to me and the best Grandpa to my kids. Jd will miss fishing and learning how to make bread with grandpa. Valerie will miss the big hugs only grandpa can give, and the silly songs he would sing.
I will miss his 'just peachy' catch phrase everytime I'd call to see how his day was going. He was the best father anyone could ever ask for and I privileged to have had him in my life. I will try to do the best as he always asked me to. Love you dad..
