I knew Dan very briefly, for less than a year, but we became friends, and both had a love for and bonded over movies and sports. He was a great guy who was very family oriented, caring and upbeat. I’ll miss talking to him and I hope he didn’t suffer. My thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones, Rest In Peace buddy.
