Not sure what to say?

To all in the Dankos family, I am so sorry to learn of your father's passing. Mr. and Mrs. Dankos were supportive of the community in so many ways, going back to hosting Key Club meetings on Route 1 and later when I had the privilege of practicing law with Mark. You all are blessed. Take care.

Condolences to the Dankos family for your loss. I only knew John from my days as a young bartender at The Dominion Club. He was a very kind, generous man, my favorite member. He always had a kind word and was remarkably funny. I never forgot his charm and wit. Rest in peace Mr. Dankos.

Jackie and Family,
We are sorry for your loss, please accept our sincere condolences.

Glenn, and family,

Thoughts and prayers to the Family and Friends of Mr.Dankos. Karen we are sorry for your loss.

My name is Muhammad Harisuddin. Mr Dankos knew me as Albert Harris. He gave me my first summer and after school job when I was 16yo back in 1961 at the restaurant on #1 Hwy in Glen Allen, Va. In hindsight, I learned a lot from this experience even though this wasn't the best of periods for "Black" employees. Mr Dankos along with his lovely wife Theresa, treated me well and I'm grateful. May he Rest in Peace and G-d forgive all of us our shortcomings and sins. If there is Restaurant...

John, Mark and family, so very sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you, Barbara Thornburg Adams

He was a very generous man of the world - a great man - now, it's the end of an Era. He will be greatly missed by all who were privileged to have known him.

Our condolences go out to your family. John was a great and faithful customer to my father and myself for many, many years.

The Elkins family
