Dan was a great friend, a great boss and always had a smile on his face. He was one of the smartest people I have ever met. From computer problems to finances he helped me considerably. He taught me how to play blackjack, after several trips to Vegas I actually came out on top! We trained for control operator at the same time. I am still amazed at his ability to excel through the program. It was easy, for Dan. His family is in my prayers. He will be missed.
