5/15/1949 - 7/10/2016 The man, the myth, the legend. Dan was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1949. He move to Florida in his early 20's and instantly transformed into a true Floridian. His love for food propelled him to become a fixture on the island restaurant scene. He also had a passion for music, often jumping on stage with the local house bands to play his harmonicas, that he rarely left home without. Possibly his greatest attribute was his gift of gab. It allowed him to become friends with everyone he ever came into contact with. He will be missed by all, but his stories will carry on forever. Survived by his son Simon, daughter-in-law Dana, grandchildren Cameron and Grant, brother Chris, sister-in-law Mary, nieces Amber, Ivy, Megan, and Courtney, and nephew Thomas. He was predeceased by his parents Laurance and Peggy, and brother Jeff. A celebration of life will be held on Monday, July 18th at O'Shucks restaurant on Cortez Road from 6pm - 8pm.
