talented artist who created cartoons for many publications locally and

traveled around the globe including trips to Europe, Australia, Great
Britain, and Russia leaving in his wake new friends he continued to
communicate with for the rest of his life.

helping people if he could. Dan would visit friends laid up in the
hospital to brighten their day and offer encouragement. He often
would visit the final resting place of friends and reminisce with them
about the good times he had with them. You can be sure he is
surrounded by those friends and family now, swapping stories and
