  1. I worked with Dan at the 27th Aerial Port Squadron. He was a hard worker, and I don’t recall he ever complained. If he did, he’d probably use his wit and be funny about it. He was uplifting to others and if you didn’t like him there was probably something wrong with you. One time Dave and I were on an annual tour together to Germany. I recall how fun he was and just a pleasure to be around. I believe he had a positive impact on others just because of who he was. My heartfelt condolences to and prayers of comfort for all who loved him. He will be greatly missed.

  2. Joanna and Family,
    My sincere condolences on the loss of Dan. He was a great guy with a fun sense of humor. Thought and prayers that you all will find peace in these very difficult days.

  3. I met Dan many years ago as he was my IT savior many times over throughout my career in the Sheriff’s Office. I’m thankful to have known him & will remember him for his kindness. My deepest condolences to Joanna & family. You are in my prayers. 💐
