My memories of Dan are great ones. So enjoyed having him on the chess team at FHS.
Story: The chess and math teams sponsored a dance, and at one point a crowd formed around... what? Maybe a fight, so being a good chaperone I stuck my head in the middle to see, what else, this quiet chessplayer break dancing to beat the band! Dan the man.
Very saddened when Dave Peters called with the bad news. The next Monday evening at the final chess meet of the season, before the final championship round, I took the Sunday cover story about Dan and, with difficulty, read it to all sixty students. We then had a moment of silence to honor a great man.
Condolences, love and hugs,
