Daniel and I met in Boston around 2006. I was stationed in Boston while serving in the Coast Guard and didn't know many people while I was living up there, but I could call on Dan if I ever needed someone to lean on. He was a nice person with a gentle soul and I'm grateful to have known him. My thoughts and love go out to his family.

My deepest condolences to all Danny’s family. I used to work with and played softball with him at Granite. Even years after leaving there he reached out to me to help me when I was in distress. He was such a great person to me and I will always remember him.
