I had the pleasure of working with Dan as a volunteer leader for Troop 2 at First United Methodist Church. Dan was a knowledgable and kind scouter, very considerate of my son and other scouts. He always had a positive and happy perspective on life. I am sorry to hear that he has passed, but I am secure in my belief that he is with God.

I will never forget buying my first car right after graduating college from Dan. He opened on Christmas Eve, so that I could have my new car before the holidays. He was a kind, passionate, and generous man, who will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with Dan's family. Andrea (Steele) Kohlman

Pam and I are very sad to hear the news about Dan. The last time we enquired about him, he was doing well, so I was shocked to hear this morning about Dan. I even saw him back at work a couple times. He was a good and fair man, and he will be missed. Tony, you and your family are in our prayers.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I just wanted you to know, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Dan is at peace now, and I feel very priviledged to have met him and help take care of him during this difficult time of his life.

So sorry to hear about Dan. If I needed help with a technical Saab question when I was editor of the Saab Club magazine, he was always willing to give a thorough answer. He was also a terrific race driver and car builder, and willing to share what he knew with other racers. He will be missed by many friends.
Thomas R. Green (Greeny) left a message on May 7, 2010:
I knew Dan many many years. He always waved as you drove by the shop. And when you stopped in just to say hi, he always had time for a word or two. He will be remembered always. Very sorry for your loss. Greeny
