Dan was larger than life in the short time I knew him but he always had a way of making you smile no matter how bleak the attitude of your day. He loved good humor and comradely. It turns out we are relation but I just knew him as a goof ball customer! Like the saying goes only the good die young that truly applies to Daniel he was a good guy and he will be missed.
