Dan and I were neighbors for 3 years as first time homeowners. We became friends immediately with having the same passion in movies, TV series and pop culture in which we grew up in. Then we became brothers sharing stories about our familes whom we spoke about quite alot. He was a great Dad and a husband. We had daughters that were 2 years apart so we has so much in common with raising daughters that were the only child in family. Dan and I spoke and texted alot on the phone. We would keep each other occupied on the drive home from work just catching up about life. I truely enjoyed his passion in our conversations and his honesty in his opinions. God bless Dan's entire family especially Ellen and Sabrina. May God help you all find peace during this difficult time.

When Dan and I first met in high school, I instantly connected with him. I am extremely fortunate to have shared many life experiences with Dan, moments that have shaped who I am today. No matter what type of social gathering was happening, it was always better when Dan was apart of it. Nobody is perfect, but Dan was just perfect for everyone. In so many ways Dan, you were one of the bests.

Danny, my sweet, loving brother. I was so blessed to have you in my life. On this earth you were always humble and kind to everyone. We had similar views of the world and I feel so amazingly blessed that I had the opportunity to talk with you about your thoughts about this world and the world after. I told you in the hospital that I would be your hands. I hope I did a good job for you. I know you are a blessed, enlightened child of Our Great Creator, and I have confidence that you are in Heaven with Him now. I love you, and know you love me because you told me so very often that you do. God Bless you, and "air hugs" until we meet again. ? Love, Amy

What can I say? Dan was my brother and my friend. We were so close to each other. Every weekend was about getting together to go on some adventure and always finding a good meal. We ordered two different things on the menu so we could share and experience more. I’m grateful that we did do so much together because my memories of you are everywhere around me. It’s simply too soon to lose you. I was miss the laughs and debates, the sharing and the love for finding the next thing, the next adventure, the next restaurant or watching the next movie together. Part of me is gone along with you. It can not be replaced. I love you Danny Boy. Thank you for your loving companionship throughout my life. You are everything a good big brother is supposed to be.

There’s so much I want to say but I can’t it’s just too painful for me. What I would give for just one last big bear hug from my big brother. I don’t think I can ever celebrate my birthday with out you. Since I was born in the middle of your 9th.

I know only too well when a young life leaves us too soon. The words of sympathy can't express enough to heal the sorrow you (Ellen) and Sabrina and the family are feeling. I hope knowing friends understand and will be there to help heal your sorrow whenever you are ready. All my love, This is the time we rely on God and time............ Marcia and Steve

Dan was a great colleague, and I owe him dearly for my success in my career. He generously shared his hard-earned knowledge with myself and others, he approached our line of work with deep empathy for coworkers and clients alike, and he regularly made me smile and laugh. I wouldn't dare ask for a better friend. Dan's family will be in my thoughts.

Dan was my best friend, though many others may truthfully claim that same distinction. He was also the brother I never had. Several years ago, we traveled to Las Vegas together for a long weekend. Two memories of that trip remain vivid. Always the philosopher, Dan realized that the expression, “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” was essentially true. Nobody talks about what happens in Vegas because nothing happens in Vegas. The other memory over those few days was listening to the numerous times he repeated how much he missed Ellen and Sabrina, and looked forward to seeing them again. Eventually, we came home, and he reunited with the family he loved so much. The sad difference for us at this moment is knowing we are all going to miss Dan for the rest of our lives.

It’s hard to imagine life without my Dannyboy. He was so caring. I learned from him to listen respectfully to other’s opinions even if I disagreed with them. He also taught me to tell family members that I loved them because he always did that. So grateful he and Ellen gave us our wonderful granddaughter, Sabrina.??

I am heartbroken over the loss of my big brother. I will miss him more than words can express. Danny was honest and kind and always able to make me laugh. My brother brought the love everywhere he went. I will miss his big hugs and kisses on my cheek but mostly how he he always said “love you” before he walked out the door or hung up the phone. He taught me that it is important the tell people you love them, you never know when it could be you last chance. I love you Danny. I will keep you in my heart always.

Dan, Only brothers know that a brother occupies a space than can never be filled by another. As we grew up together, you were my compass, my conscience and my courage. As we were grown you were my companion and my counsel. As you depart, my cherished memories of our special relationship shall be my comfort. I love you always.
