Dear Denny...I flew out of DEN at the same time as you, also on a DC10, but in the opposite direction. i have known for the past 28 yrs how your knowledge and helpfulness saved so many lives that tragic day in SUX. I didn't know your name, however, til I learned it today from your friend Carl Hankwitz. I met Capt. Haynes at an OSH air show a few yrs later. I'm sorry I never got to meet you too. Perhaps we walked past each other in DEN that day. Perhaps we were seated near each other at the gates. I'll never know. But I do know you are a hero in the truest sense of the word. May you rest in peace always.

May you rest peacefully Denny! You are a hero! I lived just minute's away from the crash site in Sioux City, IA and will never forget the day the plane crashed. So happy you were on board, you saved so many lives. You are loved and missed.

I just read about you and the day of the crash in Iowa and the fact that you did what you did in that plane many people are alive today.

Not a truer statement can be said as we mourn your death let us thank God you lived for it was for purpose and many people are alive because you lived

Danny ... it's 2016 and I came to know about you now. I think whosoever will watch or read about incident of flight 232 in next 100s years that guy will look for you on web.

You were and will be mine real life hero. I am so touched and proud of your heroic act. I can't explain in words how I am feeling. You are a real role model.

It's sad that I can't talk and express to you how much your story has touched me.

My deep respect Hero.

Rest in peace Danny. I hold you in highest veneration. People accepting responsibility the way you did deserve much more than a Polaris reward. I know you will keep on looking over us pilots and your dearest from high above. Thanks Danny for your inspiration.

I'm very sorry Denny, to have learned of your passing. I just watched the documentary and was googling you to see whether it would be possible to meet you. I wanted very much to shake your hand. Very best, Frank
