Dan was my first love at the tender age of seventeen. We shared many great years together and reconnected recently. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know about him and his life now. He told me all about Gracie, his family, the people at work, his favorite bars, his motorcycle friends, camping, and we reminisced about the past a lot. I know he was happy with his life and surrounded by wonderful friends and family. Dan was a good soul and I know he will be looking down on us all as we move forward without him. He will always have a special place in my heart. My condolences to all those that love him and especially to his daughter Gracie. I pray you all find peace and healing during this difficult time.

Sorry for your loss. Dan had such a big heart. When Brynn passed away, he put some money in a whiskey bottle and left a note at dad’s house. I will never forget that as long as I live. R.I.P. Dan.
