In our younger days, we called him Danny!  I remember him as kind and unassuming.  He always had a smile to give as a gift that as youngsters we didn't realize what a gift it was.  I'm so sorry he had such a fight for life.  Keep that welcoming smile Danny!  Joni Canoose Corley

I am so sorry to learn of Danny's passing...we didn't really know each other in school but we had a connection conversation about therapy dogs and rescue dogs and I could tell his was a big and very kind heart. RIP Daniel.

Dan was a good friend. We shared a lot. I am sorry to see him pass. I knew that he was not well, and was not able to attend the reunion due to his health.

I am bummed that he died of pancreatic cancer. It is such a horrible disease. Once diagnosed there is often less than 5% chance of survival. It appears that Dan and I share more than being a Cougar. I have survived pancreatic cancer for over 10 years and, unfortunately Mike Coffron also died from that disease. 

Rest in peace my friend.

Holy shit. That was my first reaction to learning of Dan's death. Dan was a friend in high school and I think junior high and 6th grade. In fact we had communicated on this forum when it was first put online (belated thanks, Janet and Doug and all those involved in our web page). One of the things that most surprised me about Dan now was that he was no longer heavy set. The fact that he took in stray dogs is wonderful. I have a friend in San Diego who is highly involved in animal welfare.

Dan may be gone but he will never be forgotten.

Always so hard to see the notice of another classmates death.  We weren't close but always had a kind nod and word for one another.  Warmest thoughts to his children and dogs...I'm sure they all miss him terribly.

Having just spent time with my dearest pal Janet (Shutts) Rowe and, the weekend following her vist to Ashland, with Terry Huff, and then texting about travels and a possible rendezvous with Alison Pease and husband Jeff on their way home to Davis from Portland -- all of whom are filled with possibility and life -- learning of another classmate who has passed into mystery is more than a little sobering, though clearly, of course, what is inevitable.  I knew Dan mostly through messages we exchanged on this website, which has been a wonderful engine of connectivity for so many of us, and which made me wish I had known him better when we were in school. (Bravery about getting out of our respective bubbles was one subject of our conversations.) It is very comforting to know that Dan is out of pain and, I hope, at peace, though sad that another classmate's life has ended all too soon -- especially one that so positively affected those with whom he was close, both animal and human. Let us all take the best of care -- of ourselves, our loved ones, and each other -- during whatever time may be ours . . .  and may that time, if at all possible, be filled with hope and wonder.

Sorry to see Dans name in the memories page.  I knew Dan in school, not well, but enough to give a heads up in the halls.  I think he may have purchased a hindquarter of beef from me in Menlo Park in the early 70s.  I think he lived around Pope St. if memory serves. Rest easy Dan.

Panceatic cancer is one of the worst and to be among the  5% is like winning the lottery.  My father passed from the same in 1980 at 60 years old.
