To the Begin Family,

Just learned of Father Dan's passing. I truly am sorry for your loss. Lenore was my 8th grade teacher at Saint John Nepomucene and spent many years teaching at our parish school. Barb was in our front office and both were wonderful people. Fr. Dan became a priest just before I graduated 8th grade. He will be missed by many and he impacted our community in such a special way. Eternal Rest Grant Him Oh Lord.

Father Dan, you were the most loving priest I have ever know. While heaven rejoices, earth is diminished by your passing.

Father Begin was a wonderful priest and a very special person. I will miss him more than I can say.

When I questioned spirituality in the workplace, you helped me seek answers and resources. Thank you so much Father Dan for appearing in my documentary. https://youtu.be/9yaq1ndv0fE?list=PLvzcsYWUSMrUATBS3djgESqNvkbvdfb9T

My sincere condolences to his family. Heaven must've needed a champion! That's how I'll always remember Fr. Dan, as a champion to those who needed kindness , love and big giant hugs! I met Fr.

Visits to Cleveland meant a visit to see Fr. Dan! My sisters, husband and I all knew him! After my husband died we all went to see Fr....

There are no words to describe how I feel about losing Father Dan. He has been a part of the lives of my brothers and I for 40 years. He and our father John, were the best of friends. He made Dad a better man. His love of God was unwavering. His faith in people, second to none. I will miss his never ending smile. His awesome hugs, but mostly, I will miss him. He touched so many. He was truly the best man I have ever met. My condolences to all of you. Find comfort in knowing that he is exactly...
