I considered Dan as a brother. He always made me smile and laugh. You will be missed. My heart goes out to his family.

From the first time I met Dan as a new employee with OU he was as gracious as anyone could be to me. My wife and I ran into he & Terry once at the movies and he was genuinely happy and kind as anyone could be. I absolutely loved the person he was and will cherish his memory forever. Sincerely
