  1. I am so sorry to hear about Dans passing……He was one of the best neighbors one could have…..we spent many hours together hanging out in his gazebo over the years when we lived next door.

  2. We will always have our memories of golfing with Dan on the Senior Golf Tour and our casual golf outings after he left the tour. Most important, we will always cherish our Saturday mornings at Cashwise Grocery for coffee and a donut. It was a weekly gathering for us to get together and visit about a wide array of topics. We will miss you Dan, now you and Edith will be together again.

  3. So sorry to hear of Dan’s passing. “Gordy” was a a wonderful friend and neighbor for my mom and the whole gang in the Oak Grove neighborhood. His warm smile and gentle manner will be missed by all.

  4. Dan was truly a great friend to me. I enjoyed the many times him and I got together for lunch at the Holiday Inn. He said he really didn’t think there was a better restaurant in town. He was always a very supportive friend. Dan, you will be missed.

  5. my deepest condolences to Daniels family and friends. I would like to share some words of confort with those that are mourning his loss. Jehovah assures us that his is with us during difficult times like these, Psalms 34:18 says “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; he saves those that are crushed in spirit.” I hope this scripture strengthens you all to get through this difficult loss.

  6. I am so very very very sorry ……I just today (2-22-18) learned of Grandpa Dan’s passing away. Had I known sooner I would have visited him in Eventide and certainly would have gone to his funeral. I am so sad………blessings to you all – Jeannine Hess (Chris Olson’s mother)
