Dan’s smile could light up a room, he was always generous and the first to step into help others in need. He was known for his honesty, bluntness, quick wit, and one-liners. Dan loved spending time with his family and friends, eating sushi, beach vacations, Fantasy Football, weightlifting, golfing, wrestling, video games, board games, and his nap time. He especially enjoyed spending weekends with his brother, Bob, sister-in-law Samantha, and their puppies, Nova and Lyra.
