I remember how much Dana enjoyed his photography. I was best friends with Dana's brother, Bruce, since childhood so I got to know the McGrath family very well. The McGraths are a beautiful family.

I along with my parents Val and Nick, my sisters Angie and Aurora wish to extend our deepest condolences to Sina, Norma, Berna, Diane, Bruce and their families.

God bless

We are at a loss for words...Dana was a prince of a man. He adored his wife and children and most recently his precious grandchildren. Dana was also a man of many talents with his computer skills, photography and his ability to ‘fix’ almost anything. He was kind and generous, giving of his time and resources to anyone in need. Dana...you put up a valiant effort to be with all you loved and had to leave us far too soon.
You will be sorely missed by all and in particular me and Paul.
Our heartfelt condolences to Sina, Kevin, Josie, Andrew, Alize, Ashley, Piero and Noah and extended family members.
Linda

I am so sorry for you loss. I worked with Dana at IBM for a number of years. He was a colleague, mentor but most of all a friend. He always had a big smile and was willing to share his knowledge.
