Shirley and family- I’m so sorry to learn of Dan’s passing! I remember talking with him about his work as a utility foreman as my Dad had done the same. I also recall his journey and bravery living with his Levy body disease. Shirley- you were a wonderful care partner! Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers!

I was very sorry to learn about Danny’s death. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Danny was my best friend growing up. I fondly remember not only the fun times playing together whether it was basketball, baseball, pickup football, fishing, or other activities but also going along with Danny and his parents on trips to Boulder Junction or civil war battlefields in the south or having Danny come on my family’s annual trips to Alabama. Unfortunately our paths diverged after high school as he headed to Dominican College and the Army and I to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and then to an academic career in Iowa City, Iowa and Cincinnati, Ohio and to retirement in Boulder, Colorado. Sadly, this meant our interaction with one another became almost nonexistent. Our last interaction was at our 50 year high school reunion, where we spent a wonderful time trying to catch up on our lost 50 years. Danny was always a warm, kind, wonderful person and a special friend even though our ways had parted. His passing will leave a hole in my heart. As I know you can attest, Danny was treasure to all and will be deeply missed. With warm regards to your entire family. Robert (Whitey) Ludke

Shirley and family, I was very sorry to hear that Dan had passed away. I'm so glad that you and Dan were able to our Dominican College Class of '67 reunion back in 2008 in Racine. It was good seeing him again after so many years! I will let our DC classmates know of his passing and the upcoming streaming service. Dan was truly one of the good guys in this world. You all have my prayers.
