Julie & family - I'm so sorry to hear about Dan. I have lots of memories of Dan from the time we were kids. I hadn't seen him for awhile but will always picture him working at Fareway. He was on a call once for my dad & I know how much they appreciated the help that day. I was hoping to make it to the visitation today but wasn't able. You have my deepest sympathies.

Julie and family I am so sorry for your loss. Words are not able to express how much we are all thinking of you. The class of 84 lost a man with a lot of class. Dan was always such a gentleman. I always looked forward to running into Dan for a friendly conversation. God Bless

The Horace Boies family would like to offer their condlences to Lois and the family for the loss of Dan. He and dad are probably having a "good visit" right now!!! This is always a sad time but remembering the good times gets you through-"one day at a time".

Julie & family, I am so sorry to hear of your lose. My thoughts and paryers to your family. I'm always just a phone call away.

I only met Dan a couple of times but my parents, Jim and Faye Moore (both deceased) always spoke highly of Dan. I am sorry to hear his life here on earth was so short. From what my parents said about him he must have packed his life full with lots of goodness not only for himself but for everyone around him. My sympathy for all of Dan's family and friends.
