My fondest memory of Dan's kindness was allowing myself, Bill, Joe and our dog(Katie) to move in with him in 1992.Our home in Cicero had sold before the new one in Plainfield was finished. We stayed with Dan for almost 3 months. It was very generous of him to open his home to us and I will always be gratedful.

You will never be forgotten Dan.

Dan:
The memories of you will be with us for the rest of our lives. George and I had plans for the future for all four of us….
Some exciting trips, card games, and dinner dances, mushroom hunting etc. It all changed and we are three now!
We will continue to set our holiday table for four - as we did it before. I am sure you are now in better place, no more pain and suffering. We are very happy that we had known you.
Rest in Peace - dear Brother-in-Law!

We grew our friendship over 55 years, and our times together were all good. Dan was with me when we took my son, Joe, hunting for his first time. We were together for Dan's last fishing trip to Canada, netting each other's fish and swapping old stories over drinks after dinner. With millions of additional memories to cherish, Dan will always stay in my heart. He'll never be forgotten by any of his many friends, who share our grief with Dan's family now.

God must have a fishing boat for Dan's use now, and I'm sure the fishing is great!

Uncle Dan. You brought joy to the life of my aunt and Godmother (Krsna). It was the first time in a very long time that, when I saw her with you, I could sense she was truly happy. Your presence, love and support allowed her to break the chains from the past, put it in its place and lead a fulfilled life together. Your gift of love to her will go on in her memories, forever.

The Lord only puts us on this earth for a short time. After the time has passed us by, we are only left with memories. My memories of you are only fond ones. You are a good man and will be missed. Rest in Peace Uncle Dan.

With Love,

Andy, Linda, Andy Jr. and Amanda Sodoma

Oh Dan, I feel robbed that I did not know you better. I will always remember our one fishing trip and playing cards in my garage. I am comforted that you knew Jesus Christ. God bless Maria in her grief. Those of us on this side of Jordan feel a terrible loss at Dan's death, but when Dan sees what Jesus has done for him he surely will need a stiff drink.

May God comfort Dan's children and entire family.

We shall not ever forget Dan. He was a good man and that's a worthy end for any man.

rest in peace, my brother

I was honored to be one of Dan's many friends and life he touched. I'll never forget the great times we had hunting, fishing, chating politics and solving all of the worlds problems over a few beers. My sons enjoyed going out to the shooting range with him when he moved here to Arizona where he enjoyed showing them proper gun handling and safety while demonstrating his own pinpoit accuracy at the targets. And who can forget Dan & Maria's first Jetski experience here at Suguaro Lake when the jetski became temporary submarine. I have so many fond memories over the years, these and Dan's smile will always be prsent in my mind and heart. The Crandall's Jeff, Sheryl, Josh & Jordan(Casa Grande, AZ formerly from Chgo metro)

We will never forget his friendly smile and gentlemanly manner.We will always be thankful we had Dan to call our friend. Our prayers and thoughts will always be with him and Maria. May God Bless him and grant him peace. And you, too, Maria.

I've known Maria for years before she even met Dan. When she met Dan at a Church Singles Group she wasn't ready to date him right away. It took a little persuading on his part. I'm so glad she did. When she was going through some health issues, Dan was always there for her. Maria told me so many times how lucky she was to have such a good and caring husband. When we finally met Dan we realized what a wonderful and kind man he was. He never said a bad thing about anyone. We will miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Maria.

I wish I’d known Dan better than I did. I didn’t really know him that well but through working with Maria learned what a kind and loving man he was. Maria often spoke about how lucky she was to have met and married him. A lot of us envied her being married to such a wonderful man. God bless you Dan, may you rest in peace.

Dan was a loving husband, father, and grandfather to our family, but most of all he was my friend. Though I was not his biological son, and only his stepson by his marriage to my mother, you would have never known that he was not my biological father. The way he always loved us all and cared for us, and the way he was always available for us at all times, good and bad, to offer his guidance, advice, and a true fatherly love to my family and I, that just cannot be expressed here in writing. My family and I will always mourn the loss of this great man, who he was and always will be, my father Daniel Aitken. I love you Dad. We will never forget the way you touched our lives.

Love,

Ivan, Pamela, Ivan Jr., Miro, and Zach.

It was too soon and it is not fair! We had so much more life and happiness planned together. You brought such joy and love to my life, you worked so hard and helped and cared for everyone else. I wish I had the chance to tell you how important you were to me, and how much you influenced my life. I will be so proud of you always. Words cannot express how much you will be missed. I will always keep you in my heart and remember what a strong, proud man you were. I will miss you and I will love you forever, my love!

Dan was the type of man you didn't need to know for long to know that he was a sweet, kind and gentle man. We were among the lucky ones who knew him for a long time and have many wonderful memories. Whether it was hunting, fishing or just sitting around shooting the breeze, Danny was a joy to be around. You will be missed, but we know we can look back at the times we shared with you and smile. Maria, our thoughts and prayers are with you and hope God gives you the strength you need. Love,

Dan was a wonderful man. He filled everyone's life with joyful memories, all of which will be thought upon daily. An individual like Dan is never truly gone. His spirit and memories will live on forever. Our deepest condolences go out to the entire family, and we will be there for you throughout this time of mourning. Dan will be missed greatly, but I know he is now an angel among us. We love you Dan.
