It is a privilege to learn about Daniel through the many memories and stories shared. I never got to meet him, but I truly have a good picture of him through the memories of his family. He does indeed live in your hearts and will be one of the first people I want to meet when I get to Heaven. ~Russ

Dan .We still miss and love you. When Dan was a young boy he started to learn all about computers. He mother got him an "Z 60" or something. Most of us did not have a clue about computers but Dan knew they were the furure. Not sure why but Dan for some reason believed I looked or acted like Captain Hawkeye Pierce on that great TV show MASH. That was special for me because I also was a big Hawkeye fan. Blessing on your birthday, Uncle Pete

Daniel was one of a kind. He was that person even at a young age that he would be the teacher and we were his students. He enjoyed being a Navy Corpsman with the Marines and he received two Navy Achievement awards. He also loved to travel, climb mountains and learn foreign languages. Dan had a motto that he lived by: opus, mereo, et adfero (work, serve, and contribute). Dan was about to be awarded a master's degree in biology from Cal State. I know he Dan is in heaven with God and he is working, serving and contributing. I love him dearly and miss him very much. Uncle Pete

Six years and it really does not get any easier. Miss your smile, your laugh, your hugs, your advice and your cooking.

We were so blessed to have Daniel in our lives for 33 years. Many people do not know someone as wonderful as our Daniel was. He loved to help others, whether as a Corpsman, nurse, friend, or student. Other service members called him "Doc" or "The Professor". He changed the lives of all he met. We miss him and will love him forever.
