My condolences and prayers to Mr. Ramirez' s family.
I had the pleasure and honor of working with Dan on the railroad. I enjoyed his work ethic and his sense of humor. He spoke his mind but was not afraid to admit his mistakes. He always had a ear to listen to me and I miss his guidance and advice.
I loved his cooking!
God has a gained a strong but gentle Angel! God bless the Ramirez family during this hard and trying time.

Dan had many friends here at BNSF. He was a wonderful man who was always willing to lend a helping hand. He was a humerous and kind hearted gentle man.

I'm so sorry to hear this and the family is in our prayers. I remember I used to go over to Dan's house a lot with his son Daniel when we were younger and he was strict and scared me when I first met him when I was a little kid but then the more I got to know him the more I seen how great he was. In middle school and high school I remember asking him if I could use him as a reference for a job and he let me. I remember making a trip to his work just to tell him thank you for the help he gave me getting the jobs I had in school. He will be greatly missed, again my condolences.
