Dan and I used to work as IT Consultants for Purdue Pharma. We were on a team tasked with upgrading desktops and laptops to Windows 2000. During one phase of the project we used to drive back and forth to Princeton, NJ together. We used to laugh and joke all the way to NJ. Back then Dan always said he would work for the YFD, it was a dream of his. Dan was one of the most down to earth, coolest guys I knew. I will miss him terribly.
