Daniel V. REPOLE
November 7, 2019
Once, when Danny returned from an overseas trip, he couldn't wait to return to work that same night, despite having been on a long flight. Why? Because he missed his trombone!
Danny was a soft-spoken gentleman. He also was very generous.
I will miss him terribly, yet I am so grateful for all the moments I got to spend with him.
