Rest in peace Dan you were a great guy, a friend and now I learn a fellow "metal head" that loved Iron Maiden. One of the last conversations I had with Dan was about his grandson. He beamed with joy and you could see how proud and happy he was when he talked about him. My deepest condolences to his family for their loss. Dan will be greatly missed by those that knew him.
I met Dan about 4 years ago when I joined the software team at Dept of Labor. Though I only knew him for a brief time, I enjoyed conversations with him immensely. He had a depth of experience, and his warmth made him very quick to befriend. I wish I could have known him for a longer time.
I am so sorry to hear of Dan's passing. He was a very interesting man who seemed to have a wonderful zest for life. He certainly loved taking photographs and sharing his photos with his co-workers at NYS Department of Labor. I will miss him. He had fascinating stories and he lived a fascinating life. God bless..
