I just learned of Dan's passing and I feel so saddened. He was the most incredible teacher of English teachers I had ever. I took a couple of his classes at UIC and he supervised my student teaching. I am a veteran teacher of English and writing because of Dan's mentorship and wisdom. I saw him in downtown Chicago and thanked him several years after taking his courses and while I was finishing grad school. Dan was simply an incredible teacher and man of ideas.

Dan was a rare person: gentlemanly and kind, with a droll and impish sense of humor, scholarly and professorial, yet never taking himself too seriously. We were sad when he and Lucia relocated permanently to their
New York home. A loss for our Chicago Jungian community at the time. His death makes that loss deep and permanent.

Hi Daniel,

I was a student and a collogue of your father at the Chicago Jung Institute. I also met Lucia on several occasions at the Chicago Institute social events. You father was a generous, insightful and soulful individual. When he was on one of my evaluating committees, he gave me precious feedback which had a profound impact on my Self understanding. I will miss him greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at the loss of your father. He will always live fondly in my memories of what is the best of humanity.
