Dan will be missed so very much. He was part of our lives nearly 28 years. I first met Dan at Weyerhaeuser where we both worked; and we soon became steadfast friends. My husband, Gary, and I are blessed with many wonderful memories of time spent with Dan -- fishing, bowling, hiking, water-skiing, music festivals, sports, and visiting with friends just to name a few. Dan had a great zest for life. He cherished his friendships, and was always ready to share conversation with new people he met. We often shared events in our lives, and it was no mistaking how important his family was to him, too.
Dan will remain in our hearts with love and affection always. God be with him, and give him peace.
