Looking through all these pictures has made me realize how much Dana lived his life to the fullest. His infectious smile shows the true love he felt for so many in his life. What an amazing father he was to all his girls. So thankful for the time he had with Barbara. Although I didn’t see much of Dana over the past 20 years, every time I did he made me feel like I was still his kid “sister-in-law” and always greeted me with a big hug and loud “aunt Kacky”! Thank you Dana for loving Donna, Lauren and Jaime so deeply. You were a good man! I’m sorry to miss his celebration of life tomorrow. Prayers of comfort to all. Love, Aunt Kacky

Missing my sweet love on Valentine's Day even more. Thank you for the beautiful life and endless love we shared. I'll continue to love, honor, respect and miss my beautiful man forever. As I mentioned every day, you gave me 1000s of reasons to love you ... you are the best man, husband, father, friend and love, and I am grateful for not only our life since I moved to Georgia, but for the deep love that started almost 45 years ago.

In 1978 we moved into our first house and within months decided to install a hot tub. We wanted it sunk in the ground, so a hole had to be dug and the ground was hard clay. Ron proceeded to dig a hole. At some point Dana came to visit for a weekend and this shows what a good friend he was....he helped dig the hole! The hole was nearly dug and I (Carole) decided the hole needed to be a few inches to the left. Dana helped make the hole wider. It was hard work, digging with a pick-ax and shovels. That is a friend indeed.

Rest in Peace Dana! You were a great conversationalist with many great experiences to share! My prayers are with your daughters and loved ones. You will be missed by all who had the pleasure to meet you!

I'm so sorry that Dana has left us. I will truly miss him. He was so happy and so full of life. I always enjoyed his company. On the day that Dana died that night I saw Dana in a dream. He had that big smile on his face and a pretty woman on each arm. The next morning my son told me that Dana had passed. I knew then that what I had seen was a couple of angels taking Dana home. Rest in peace my friend. We will meet again.

It's been a pleasure to call you my friend for the past 45 years. We enjoyed many rounds of golf and happy memories together. On behalf of the Monsanto Opto community, may you truly Rest in Peace. I'll miss you and hope to share a "salty dog" with you when we meet up again, my friend.
