Dear Carmen & Family,
Dan Wilkens was my mentor while I worked under his direction for seven years. I always looked up to Dan, not just because he's tall, but because of his integrity and his natural leadership style that I'll never forget. Dan had a strong influence on me and contributed to my success as a city planner and a leader in government. I have the highest regard for Dan; a kind man; a man that was true to his word; and a man that held firm on his values. I learned so much from Dan. I owe him so much. This world will miss Dan Wilkens!

Dear Carmen and family members,
Dan will be remembered by the San Diego Port Tenants Associaiton forever. We not only considered him a collegue but a friend. When he worked at the Port he always had his door left wide open and listened to our concerns. He was a great mediator and a good problem solver. When I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer he was the first friend that called me and offered his knowledge about this disease. Dan's legacy will forever be remembered.
Warm Regards, Sharon Cloward and the San Diego Port Tenants Association

Dear Carmen and Family
I am so saddened to learn of Dan's passing. He was a good friend and a positive force in the world. Having worked with Dan for over 20 years, I have several memorable stories that I hope to tell his family sometime. Maybe we can meet at the French Bakery in Escondido sometime to reminisce! I am so sorry for your loss. His is a loss for all of us.

My thoughts and prayers are with Carmen and the family. Dan was a wonderful person to work for at the Port of San Diego and always had a smile on his face. I especially enjoyed his story about his love of kitchen dish towels. I will celebrate his life by remembering his warm smile and all the good memories I have of him. Carmen, may you and your family find comfort at this time. The night will shine a little more brightly as Mr. Wilkens shines from above.
