Dan was the best! The best neighbor, more like a 2nd Dad than just a neighbor. Always with a smile! I only had the chance to dance with him once, but have to say he was the best dance partner anyone could wish for! I could have danced the night away! May he be dancing and cooking up a storm in heaven with his MaryJo. I will forever miss his baccala! Love and prayers to you all.

Cathy, Sam, Rosie and Dan, just want you to know how sad I am at the passing of your dad. My uncle Danny was the best. He always had a smile on his face and a kiss when I walked in the door. He cared deeply for everyone but particularly family I have such fond memories of him and your mom. I will miss him. I hope you all will take comfort in how terrific a person and father he was. Take care and be safe
