Rest in crease Dan. I always loved seeing your comment chains on Facebook; you were a riot. I’ll be tapping the stick for you in each of my games.

My heart goes out to the Gray family...it absolutely hurts like nothing else to lose a loved one (just recently lost my dad) but I can and will say this...the memories made need to be cherished and please...words of experience...let laughter in. It helps and I think Dan would want it that way too. Only had dealings with Dan one time on GGSU buying a mask from him, but we spoke a few times after the fact and he always seemed like a great guy.
Im soooo terribly sorry for your loss Gray Family...please accept my condolenses :(

Dan, I'm so sorry you had to leave this life so soon. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to have met you and get to know you a bit. I already knew you were a great guy when I found out you were smart enough to go after your beautiful wife. May you rest in peace, and your memory be cherished by all who had the pleasure to know you.

Dan, we didn’t know each other that well but your smile was contagious when you and Angie would stop in the store to shop. Always such a sweet and funny man. You will be missed by so many! I’m so very sorry for your loss Angie. There are no words that can fix this or make you and the boys feel better, so I’ll just continue sending you my love and prayers! Godspeed Dan!
