So sorry to hear of Danny's passing. He was a classmate and good friend. I missed him at our 1971 fifty year reunion. I remember his drumming and cool bellbottom pants in high school. John Cantlin

So sorry to hear of Dan's passing. I worked with him for a few years on D crew. I'll always remember him working out on the elliptical machine and just randomly laughing to himself. I still say some of the the things he would always say, like "there's a hard worker" or "hey stud". Dan was very knowledgeable and had a lot of good stories. He would crack me up.

I had the pleasure of working with Dan for several years. He always was friendly and willing to assist in anyway he could. He will be missed but always remembered for his gentle spirt and blessed by everyone that had an opportunity to know him.

I live next door to Mr Dan. Him and I would visit while he was outside tending to his yard. Hed ask questions about my job offshore and then after I retired and started working at a business here in rock springs, hed ask about different guns or ammo. One day he asked if I could help him put a new stove in the kitchen, and of course I was glad to help. The last time we spoke it was about going out and shooting .22 magnums. Ill miss seeing him outside tending his yard.

Dan used to join us and often lead the Rosary before daily morning mass. I will offer a rosary for his soul. Our prayers are for all of you. Mary and Jack Adams
