Not sure what to say?

Dan was an exceptional engineer and role model, deeply admired by all those who worked with him. I had the good fortune to work with him at Digital Equipment in Hudson, MA, and met him a number of times later in California. Without Dan, Digital would not have achieved the prominence it reached in the computer industry. The first MicroVAX chip, and especially the first Alpha chip, became reality thanks to his design contributions.

I was part of the CAD group that supported the...

I had the honor of meeting Dan a few times while working on my first start-up company, Procket Networks, back in 1998-1999.

He was a great designer but even more important he was a great human being, he will be missed.

Dan was my mentor and started me on the path to being a designer who thought beyond... he inspired and drove me to do my best... he will always be lifted up in my house when I describe to my kids what the right influence and leadership can do for a person and a team!!

I was very sad to hear of Dan's untimely passing

He was a valued friend and mentor

He will be sadly missed
