Dear Elsie & Family
I am very sorry to hear of Dan's passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. As a child I have many memories of Dan and Dad with the Seascouts. I remember all those handsome young men coming to the house with Dan and Dad. I was very young but today that still is a vivid memory for me. Remember that you and the children are in my thoughts.
Love, Karen Miller

My deep sympahthy and condolenes to the McCoart and Hermann families.

Mr. McCoart was my first basketball coach at Our Lady of Peace School and the lessions and values he taught me not only in basketball but in life are priceless.

In later years I always enjoyed talking talking with Mr. McCoart and was always impressed with how up to date he was especially on high school and college sports.

I've always admired him and will remember him forever.
