I was very sad to hear of Dan’s passing. As a fellow Jasper, professional engineer, and fellow Catholic, Dan and I had a great working relationship but also a great personal relationship. I will especially miss the great phone conversations we use to have. He was always very open and honest. He will be greatly missed.
Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. My his soul and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen.
