To Nan, Lauren, Brett, and all others in Dan's family that loved him so. I had the absolute pleasure of working with Dan at NAVSEALOGCEN for 10 years, and was very sorry and surprised to hear of his passing. Dan was a fast learner and a very dedicated worker. He very seldom called in sick and would be so dedicated to his work that he would often come in for a few hours, even on his day off. Dan was loved by those in the office and would offer help and advice to any of us that needed it. He brought laughter and cheerfulness to all that had the good fortune to work with him. He was generous to a fault, and his franks and sauerkraut that he routinely brought into work became legend, not just in his immediate office, but in the whole building. I will miss those times when he met me for lunch after I retired, and I so much enjoyed when Dan would be my tour guide when I occasionally would meet him in Gettysburg. He will be so missed! So, Dan the Man, this is JR. Rest in peace, and Semper Fi!

My deepest and most sincere condolences to Dan's family and friends. It was a please to have Dan as part of the SEALOG Family, especially during my tenure as CO. I could always rely on Dan for his honest and direct advice which more than not proved to be correct. I can attest to his love of the Gettysburg Battlefield as I still have some of the artifacts he gave me many years ago.
May he rest in peace.
