In his spare time, he was an avid golfer. He loved spending time in St. Pete Beach, Fla. It was his happy place, his heaven. A friend once said, “If you did not like Dan, you did not know Dan.” Through his courageous battle with cancer his wife Pam called him “my Superman.” He was an all-around great person to know and cared very deeply for the people in his life.
