I had the pleasure of working with Dan at the railroad. He was such a bright light with his positive attitude and wisdom. My condolences to your family.

Iona and family,

Dan will be missed! He was a great Scoutmaster, and a positive influence on my childhood. Later, I always enjoyed talking to him about outdoor adventures whenever I'd see him.

To Iona & family, so sorry for your loss. He was an inspiring man.
I appreciated Dan's help in attaining steaks from K-State for our Girl Scout wagon train across Wabaunsee Cty.
