Dan loved his job and he thought the world of his co-workers. He played many sports including hockey, soccer (goalie), and lacrosse. If he wasn't spending time with his family and friends or playing sports you could find him enjoying his favorite hobby, fishing.
He loved all things silly. His smile and laughter could light up the room no matter where he went. He had eyes like ice but he had one of the warmest and biggest hearts you could ever find. He was always there to give and helping hand regardless of the time.
Danny Boy "DB" may you rest in peace.
Since the loss of you, I've learned to live for each day and take it as a blessing, knowing it may not always be this way. Since the loss of you, I've learned that when everything goes wrong to never give up on what is right, because it can only make you strong. Since the loss of you, I've learned that even when you're in a lot of pain you've got to hold yourself together, so you won't feel like your going insane. Since the loss of you, I've learned how to hold the tears when I want to cry, because all i have is memories and just want to ask God why. But mostly, since the lost of you, I've learned a life can be taken in the blink of an eye and only Heaven really knows when that person will have to say Goodbye.
