Sorry for your loss - prayers for the family
Sorry to hear of the passing of Dan. He was liked by all who were lucky enough to have met him. I worked with him for many years but will always remember him and Dave stopping to talk with me and my dad in Machine Shop Lake and rowing on by in the dark hunting ducks so many years ago. Times have changed but Dan was always the same, truly the definition of a nice guy.
Dan was good to work with and one of the friendliest guys I know. I will miss my 'ole buddy Dingo. We worked together on 3rd shift for many years at RTP.
Dan is a sweet man and so kind. I will miss him and his kind spirit.
