I remember Dan from Air New England back in the 70’s. I worked there as a secretary and I remember him as always being extremely kind and always upbeat.
I had not seen him in many years but ran into him again a few years ago at his doctor’s office where I was working . It was such a pleasure to see him again and catch up.
I am so sad to hear of his passing . Your family has my deepest sympathy . He will be missed.
