This is just awful! Louis and I always looked for Dan in a crowd he always had a smile on his face and a hug for friends. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Dan was the finest man I ever knew. I don't make that statement lightly. He was a great friend.

Services:
Brewitt Funeral Home Sunday April 22 from 4-7 p.m.
2 Epping Street
On the Common
Raymond, NH
603.895.3628

Monday April 23 at 11 a.m. at the Raymond Methodist Church, 51 Main Street, Raymond, NH 603-895-2265

I'm sure we'll have a fine contingent of MINIs there to honor his memory.

I just got a call from Spectrum where Dan worked. The first location in Exeter was wrong.
Sunday services are in Raymond, NH. Please see the change noted in the above post.

right-o, Steve.. I can't say for sure I can make it, but I am going to do all I can to get there. Dan was a great guy, I'm really gonna miss him.

Do you know if there's anything the family needs, etc?..

Here's a great funny moment we had one of the last times I saw him. It was on the way to "Berries and BBQ 2005". HJ and TL, Myself and Dan were in a small convoy on 101 and we just randomly got out on the side of the road and presented Dan with his beautiful date.. the always love ly "Lola" This picture just cracks me up every time I see it.. He was such a good sport and one of the kindest people I've ever met.

I really can't take this anymore. Such tragic news. I am sorry to say that I'll be in DC during the services. Please pass my condolences along. He truly was one of the nicest people I've ever known. I will greatly miss his smile and his warm heart, but I can take comfort in knowing there are three great souls waiting to greet him.
