Not sure what to say?

I worked with Dan at MPI Research. Just a straight up good person who always went out of his way to say hello and share a word or two. Rest in Peace Dan, you will be missed.

My deepest condolences to the Turluck family. We grew up in the same neighborhood and rode the same school bus. May he find peace and joy in our Lord. may the family cherish all the memories you have of Dan, and find comfort remembering those good times.

God Bless,

Marcia Schleicher

capsaicin: a bit piquant, like Daniel

I had the honor or being recruited by Daniel to be his "boss" at KAR Bioanalytical (has anyone ever been Daniel's boss?). We managed difficult times together there during the great recession. What a great combination of integrity and levity Daniel had in the workplace. I recall many problems he solved with such dexterity of thought - always so well grounded in fundamental chemistry. He was an artist in the lab. My condolences to his family and friends. We will all miss him...

My condolences to you and your family.

I worked with Dan in the Drug Metabolism/PK-PD group at either Upjohn, Pharmacia-Upjohn, Pharmacia, and/or Pfizer. Sorry to learn about his way to early illness and passing.

Dan was a smart man with a fun sense of humor. He will be missed by many.

Dear Laura and Family:
Please accept our condolences and deep regret for the passing of your memorable Dad. May God bless him and may you find joy from those who love you.

As long-time members of the Greater Detroit Sunfish Club, Stu and I are so very sad to hear of Dan's passing. Although he never quite caught the 'sailing bug', he was always supportive of Gail's passion for the sport, and quite fun to have around. Gail, Neil and Laura, please take comfort in one another and in your precious memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
