Our association with Dan was through ARG. He was the person who gave stability to the working relationship with ARG. His sincerity and demeanor will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Our heart felt sympathy to the family, may he rest in peace.

Pastor Dan was truly a man of God. Always making you feel better about your personal problems after you’ve spent time with him in prayer. I couldn’t remember a time when I didn’t see a smile on his face or a sound of laughter coming out of his mouth. You will be greatly missed Pastor Dan!!!
