I’ve only just learned today May 23, 2020 of Daniels passing. We were only Facebook acquaintances/friends, but he spent time conversing with me over the death of my son. I’m so sorry for his passing, he had so much to offer and was so kind to me. I should have known sooner, but I’ve been very sick myself. My condolences to his family. He was a sweet and precious soul. I knew he was ill, but he never let it be known how ill he was. I’m blessed to have known him, and grateful for for the care and encouragement he offered through his kind words.

I am so fortunate to have known Dan for over 50 years.
He married my longest and dearest friend, Margarette Ann of 55 years. I was privileged to be their maid of honor at their lovely wedding in 1970.
Over the years, I got to know Dan as a wonderful, caring,
thoughtful and funny man. He was a loving husband, father and human being .
My heartfelt thoughts are with the family now and always.
Love Always,
Tricia A.K.A. Pat in the 60s and 70s

My heart is sad for the rather sudden passing of my friend Dan. Sometimes the good Lord calls some of his children home earlier than we would like because we will miss them so. This is the case with Dan. He was a man of kindness, dignity, integrity, caring, intelligence, and mettle. We all miss him dearly but are comforted in knowing that he is with the Lord in glory with all of His children. I will never forget Dan. He had a way of always encouraging me as he so often encouraged others. A very kind man. Maggie, our prayers are with you.

I haven't seen Danny in years, but remember him and our younger days with Aunt Vera, Aunt Nell, Timmie, Bill Douglas, Lance and Darlene. Danny was always happy and spent a great deal of time teasing everyone. Everyone loved Danny and he will be sorely missed by his family and friends. God bless. (Ruthie Walker Clabo)

I considered Dan one of my best friends. I have lots of fond memories of the time we spent together. I did not get to see Dan very often in recent years but that didn't seem to matter. I have to agree with one of the other posts - Dan was very proud of his family. My sincere condolences to all.

I had known Dan since the days we were altar boys together at Blessed Sacrament in Harriman. As with many of our friends, we grew up and out of touch with the years. It was due to social media that our friendship was renewed, sadly missing out on all the years in between. I won't offer "any words of comfort" because, at a time like this, words just don't seem to matter. My prayers for the family that God will give you the strength during this time of sorrow. Those whose memories we keep in our hearts never really leave us.

Heroes are in short supply these days. Aside from my dad, my Uncle Danny was the man I aspired to be. From my earliest recollection, he tugged me along on his adventures. From teaching me the game of poker from the depths of the Senators Club in Knoxville when I was just a wee lad, to bringing me to his home in Kendall, Florida for a month when I was about thirteen. His smile and laugh were infectious, and he will be forever loved and missed by me. My love and prayers to Margarette Ann and Chris.

I grew up with Dan on Margrave Street. We played all the child hood games, cowboys & Indians, football, basketball, kick the can, hide & seek. I will always have fond memories of those days. Rest in peace, Dan. We'll all meet again someday.
