    Thoughts and prayers for the family of this well loved man. He was definitely one-of-a-kind, and that gruff exterior covered a heart of gold! Bob, Scott, Wes, and I loved him dearly. Forrest Ann, we love you and are praying for strength for you now. I know you are at peace with this, but nonetheless, I know how much he will be missed. I’m so glad he got the wish he expressed to me when we were walking the streets of New York City—no lengthy nursing home stay. Love to Dan and to you all. I know Heaven welcomed him!

    I worked with Dan as his apprentice boy on the railroad . I always enjoyed working with him. If you didn’t work hard and pull your weight, he didn’t want you around him. I still have a little wooden golfer he made for me years ago.
    he put on a gruff exterior but had a heart of gold. Though I never met his family, I recall countless stories of Forest Ann, Bruce, and the girls through the years.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family at this trying time. I will always remember Dan and all the good times we had on the railroad.
