Dan was a great guy. Always willing to help out for his friends, or lend an ear, or advice. Enjoyed working on cars, although he cussed about ir now and then, he wasn’t fooling anyone, it was a hobby. Loved collecting Lionel trains, and fixing them up. Quiet guy that pretty much kept to himself, didn’t bother anyone. A good friend. You will be missed Dan.
