Not sure what to say?

I first met Dan at a Coast Guard C-School in Petaluma, CA where we spent a week in Team Coordination Training class. Dan was gracious and humble enough to be a student but was obviously at several 'levels' above the instructors. I've learned a lot from Dan over the subsequent years and will sincerely miss him. Rest in peace Shipmate!

Thank you to the entire Maxim family for sharing your amazing Dan with all of us. It was a true privilege to serve the recreational boating public with him but most importantly to learn so much from him. He was a great teacher and wonderful friend to all. He will not be forgotten nor will his mission to educate. We will continue to honor him by educating with a keen sense of professionalism yet a wonderful sense of humor. You and he remain in our prayers. May you rest in God's peace Dr....

I still can't believe my "pal" is gone! Dan was intergalactically brilliantly smart, generous, special, passionate, analytical, compassionate, forgiving, dedicated, charming, a volunteer, husband, father and most of all....Dan was my friend! God Bless you and rest your soul "pal". I look forward to having another Malbec with you later on.

I want to express my appreciation to the entire Maxim family for sharing Dan with us in the Boating Safety Community. We respected and admired him greatly. Many of us (including myself) can say we truly loved him. What an inspirational leader! His legacy will live on.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences for your loss. We grieve with you. Dan is greatly missed.

I had the pleasure of knowing Dan Maxim over the past 15 years and I was always struck by his compassion for people and his extreme depth of knowledge about the world. I will never forget his ability to find beauty in the arts and i was fortunate enough to learn from those experiences. Dan was the ultimate pragmatist and conceptually understood complex issues so well. I will miss his insight, intelligence and great humor. Fair winds my friend....

God Speed Dan. You and your Family are remembered in our prayers.

dan was always ready to help, to accommodate and to serve. he was among the finest people ii met in a lifetime. i will sorely miss him as a QE and as a friend. the USCGAUX among many others has suffered a tremendous loss. his memory should be a blessing for all who knew him. stewart d. warren

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any mans death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
