Dan was the kindest, most sincere person I ever knew. I worked with Dan at Federal Data Corp. in Bethesda, Maryland years ago. Dan was a special person. He was liked by everyone he met. I am glad that I kept in touch with Dan over the years and am very sad that I didn't get to visit him in New York.
I will miss Dan dearly, he is a wonderful person, I loved him and he will always be in my heart.
Dan was my sophomore roommate at Boston College and a wonderful friend. We stayed up late many times discussing our different political ideologies. We hardly ever seemed to agree. Just two weeks before 9/11, while having one of our involved discussions, he clearly explained the basis of his conservative views. Left to themselves, people would usually make the best choice. "Dave," he said. "At the core of my ideology is the belief that people are basically good and probably smart." Dan was the "goodest" of them all and he will be missed.
