Not sure what to say?

Dan was my neighbor and we loved to talk about football and police activity etc in the area. He and my hubby are SC and Redskin fans and loved to tease me about my NY Football Giants. I loved his big hugs, kind words and sense of humor. RIP Dan
CALLE MIRAMAR will not be the same.

Dan was someone you could always talk to and enjoyed life over the years. From Malaga Cove to PV High to Admiral Risty's and the South Bay we kept in touch. Last summer, it was Dan who greeted us for dinner and and showed great caring for my wife who has advanced cancer. I will always appreciate that and hope everyone remembers the good times with Dan.

Dan was not my best friend or strong acquaintance. I was a patron of his or we were occasional bar mates at the Bull Pen. He was kind, respectful, humorous, and just a rearguard Joe. Never did I hear him boastful (except maybe USC games)! May he rest in the arms of if Lord - he will be an angel useful to God!!!


One of the best humans I knew. A big teddy bear with the most infectious smile. You will be truly missed big guy because you touched everyone's heart.RIP.. so glad I had the pleasure and privilege of knowing you! Renee

Always a friendly hello from Dan over all the 42 years at Admiral Risty. RIP

My deepest condolences to the family, may you find comfort and strength from the God of all comfort in this difficult time (Isiah 25:8)

We all spent many summers together with others at Bass Lake and the Sierra Sky Ranch, as well as countless spaghetti dinners and outing for Mexican food at Olivera Street and Arturo's. There are simply way too many fine memories to share to do my childhood friendship with Dan real justice.

A few years back my work took me back to Southern California and I made...
