Dan, you were on heck of a nice guy... To Cheryl and kids.. So so sorry for your loss.. Way way to young for this to happen.. Seems we have lost so many people in our lives this year... Not sure what Gods plan is, but sure wish he would give us a clue...

I had the pleasure of knowing day from when I was a college intern at Therma-Tru. His wealth of knowledge was always impressive. And because of his positive spirit, you could not talk to Dan without having a smile on your face - every discussion was met with enjoyment. My sincerest condolences go out to Dan's family.

I was deeply saddened by Dan's passing. We were friends in Warren, all the way back to 1st grade. He was a really nice guy. It was a pleasure seeing him at the 40th reunion this summer. It really makes you aware of how short life is when you see someone after so long and then they are gone.

God bless your family and your good memories of Dan.

I met Dan through the American Society for Quality (AS) when he became Region 9 Director.

Dan was a genuine person who was dedicated to the organization and its members.

I am sorry to hear of his passing.

It was with great sorrow that I heard of Dan's sudden passing. I worked with him in Region 9 as Regional Director and he was a Deputy for me. I contnued our association as a Deputy Regional Director for him when he became the Region 9 Director. Dan was concerned about ASQ and people working very hard getting to know the member leaders in Region 9 and representing us well on the ASQ Section Affairs Council.

We will miss his smile and dedication and keep him and his family in our prayers and thoughts.

ASQ Region 9 Deputy Director

Dan's generosity with his time and knowledge for the Fort Wayne Inventors Club is just one example of what a great person he was. My sympathy goes to his family and friends.

Dan was always willing to go out of his way to help fiends. This summer he drove to not just one but two airports to pick up a classmate John Barrett so the could get to the reunion in Warren this past July.

We were in Marching Band together that was always fun especially the bus trips.
There was also Key Club and German Club.

Dan was an Eagle Scout and a great friend. One of my favorite for all times.

I am saddened to learn of the passing of Dan.

I have pleasant memories of things we did together which include square dancing, driving around Warren in his Land Rover, classical music and an after-prom with breakfast at his house.

I remember him trying to get me to spend a summer with him working at Chautuaqua. It is my loss that I couldn't make that happen.

I extend my sympathies to his family.
