He touched the lives of so many people and will be deeply missed. Dan loved spending his free time outdoors on dirt bikes, fishing, hunting, or riding his street bike. Anything with his children or grand babies (9 and counting) was what made Daniel's days complete.

Thank you Danny. My daughter has had the privilege of being friends with one of his daughters. It was Danny and Becky who first took my daughter fishing. Now she loves fishing with her own father.
Much love to Becky and her children. They are a testament of Danny's life.
