I was so saddened to hear of the passing of my dear friend and colleague. I have known Dan since around 1995, and in all the years that we worked together, or socialized, I never once remember him being anything less than happy and upbeat. He always had a great attitude, always a smile, and he never uttered a cross word about anyone. Dan loved his wife Karen, and children Tim and Daniela more than life itself. He was truly one of the kindest, and sincerest men, I have had the pleasure and honor to have known. The world was a much better place for his presence in it. We will miss you, my friend. May God bless you, and the entire Wholey family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Ken S.
