Grandpa Dan loved life and his family, most of all his Etta. He missed her dearly but tried to move on the best he could. My best memories were our Wednesday night pasta dinners where Grandma Etta and Grandpa Dan would cook a great meal and I would bust Grandpa Dan and Grandma Etta would get a kick out of it. We are so fortunate to have them part of our life as long as we did. Thank you for taking me and Mariah in and making us a part of your family. You will be missed but not forgotten.❤️

Toni, Rick, Mariah and Family,
I am so sorry for the loss of Grandpa Dan. Know he is at peace with Grandma Etta watching over all of you. Keep his memory close to your heart always for that is where his spirit will remain.
In Sympathy.

One of my favorite memories of Uncle Dan is when he agreed to install a cassette player in my car. I was working at the Point Judith Fishermen's Cooperative at the time, so I paid him back with five-pounds of yellowtail flounder. Boy, did I enjoy that cassette player. I sure hope he enjoyed the fish because he certainly earned it; hooking up that cassette player was no easy task.

Years later, I was so happy he and Auntie Etta were able to attend my wedding

Rest in Peace.

Best wishes to the rest of his family.
