  1. What a wonderful man he was. Along with being a friend to me, he was a dedicated father, husband and Gramps Man. He will have a special seat next to the Lord. I, along with countless others will miss you Daniel.
    Rest in Peace buddy, you deserve it…

  2. Natalie and Missy, you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Let us know if you need anything.

  3. Justin & family, Natalie & family and Melissa & family, Carla and I were saddened to learn Of your fathers passing. We always enjoyed talking to Dan about music as we come from the same era, good music with lyrics you could sing along even if your voice sounded like nails on a blackboard,I.e. mine. I remember when we were helping Justin & Tina move, again, to another apartment in DeKalb. We met at the Pizza Hut after to get our strength back. So sorry that we won’t be able to spend time with him in the future and reminisce on the ’60s & ’70s. We’re sorry that my surgery won’t let us travel to be with you. Know that you’ve been in our thoughts and prayers during this roughest of times. This has been a very hard year on your family and we’ll try and be there for you if you feel the need.Carla & Bill
