As easy as Dan made life for those around him, it's a difficult task he leaves us with. That of coping with the loss of his generous spirit, his easy-going manner, his abundant cheer, and a reliance on memory as the only way forward. We were the fastest of friends from our first encounter -- over purloined tenderloin -- more than three decades ago. And while wheels and willingness were part of the draw, his engaging wit and endearing personality surely were pillars of enduring fealty. And I reckon that stems from his upbringing and his family, who opened heart and home -- more than once when it was most-needed -- and to whom I'll always be grateful. We shared so many adventures and so much time in each other's company both during and after high school -- from standing around a keg to tooling around in 'The Peanut', from the Pitch table to the foosball table, from the Window on the World in the Upper Chamber to bingers in basements on Crescent Road, from spotlight-dance road trips to his well-recollected Montrebec, and in apartments and flophouses that reached from North Avenue to Flynn Avenue -- that even when our paths diverged into the wider world, such were the experiences shared, the cast of characters and the like-mindedness they combined to forge that the kinship never ebbed. In the years that followed, no visit home was complete without meeting up with DC. And we traced each other's trails, from Johnson State to the state of Florida, spending time and making memories whenever we could and at points on two continents. Dan's was the sort of genuine friendship that makes life worth living. And for which I am both fortunate and appreciative. I miss him more than words can say.

I looked forward to seeing Dan every week at Publix. He had an amazing smile and always cheered me up when he stopped by. I will miss him so much, such a gentle, sweet man. To his family, I'm so very sorry for your loss.

A true "Dawn Patrol Warrior" and warm presence. Rest in peace, Dancing Bear. I will miss you.

Dan: I met you when the troops were deployed . . . leaving from Collins Perley, St. Albans, VT, to Camp Shelby . . .you consoled me as it was a very difficult day for many of us. You wanted to ease Dennis' pain as he was leaving his only son and family. I had the privilege of going to Camp Shelby before you left for Iraq. You toured Dennis ("Tops"), mom (Denise Sheridan) and I around Camp Shelby. I even got to try on Dennis' uniform. . .what a hoot! It was always comforting to know you had Dennis' back. You were a great friend and family member! You will truly be missed. May you RIP Daniel James Cotter!! (Dennis Sheridan's sister, Patti Bourbeau)

Danny was such a sweetheart! I will always remember dancing in the living room with Dan, Sue and dog Katie to Roxy Music after school. He will be missed..... Rest in peace.
