Dearest Jan, Justin, and Kristin. My deepest sympathies and prayers are with you all at this time. I have such wonderful memories of your family and time spent at the Bays family home. He was such a warm and caring man and loving father and husband. What an honor it was to have known him. God be with you all and may his love surround you. All my love. Sincerely, Amanda Willems Hoffman.

Dear Jan and Family,
I surprised and saddened to read of Dan's passing. His intelligence, compassion and integrity made a difference in many lives, including my own. Knowing of his work at KU and reading his obituary, I am impressed at what a good man he was and what a good life he led. --Elaine Gerbert, Lawrence

I'm sorry to hear about Dan's passing, but I know that those who love him do not grieve as those without hope, so my sorrow is leavened because of that. I knew Dan fairly well during his time at Calvin, writing about him in my capacity as media relations director and also taking his class on the history of the Korean War, a fascinating class that still informs my understanding of North and South Korea to this day. He was a smart, but incredibly self-effacing guy, and he will be missed. Grace and peace,

Phil

Dear Jan and family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing on of Dan. It's been many years since I have seen him, but I have thought of him several times when I was traveling to China. I always appreciated his sincerity and friendship

Dear Family of Dr. Bays,

In 1973 or so, I took a survey Asian history course from Dr. Bays and another professor.. He remains one of my favorite teachers for his knowledge, enthusiasm, ability to convey concepts and his kindness. He struck me as a gentle man, with true mettle.

With care,

Jan and family, my condolences on the loss of your dear husband and father. May you find comfort in your memories and know that many friends, far and near, are thinking of you.

Dr. Bays was one of the gentlest and kindest men I had the honor to know. He was always there with a gentle, low laugh and silly sense of humor. I have many wonderful memories of Dr. Bays from growing up with Kristen. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during time.

This news is sad, but in another sense very good, because he lived to see the face of Christ. Remembering Dan with affection for the gifts he brought to us at Good Shepherd Lutheran. My best memory was when I was told I needed someone "outside the department" to be on my thesis committee (counseling). I selected Dan, because, as expected, his presence gave me a sense of calm. I remember writing in my acknowledgement, "Thank you for loving Jan"--because he knew what was most important in life and lived it out for 51 years. And thank you, Jan for sharing the journey with him--until death. Praying for you.

Dan was a wonderful neighbor and colleague at KU. I have many fond memories of Dan. He will be deeply missed by all in our family.

Dan always impressed me with his intelligence, his caring, and his faith. He was a patient, kind man, a great neighbor, and I know how much he will be so missed by Jan, Kristen, Justin, and so many others. I hope he looks down on all of us and continues to share his grace.
