To Dan’s parents and family, you have my sincerest condolence at this time of terrible sorrow. I was a colleague of Dan’s at CHA working with him in the Design Systems-IT Group, we became friends and I value that friendship even if it was so brief. I valued collaborating with Dan either on company projects or discussing his many creative endeavors. He was funny, extremely innovative, and always committed to completing a project to perfection. He will be sorely missed but will always remain in the hearts of the people he touched. Rest easy my friend.

Dan was an amazing art student in my AP Art class. I was in awe of his talent and ingenuity. He mastered using a drawing tablet with Adobe Photoshop within a few weeks, creating historically accurate and very realistic drawings of past presidents as superheroes. I still show examples of his work to students. My heart and prayers go out to his family. I am deeply sorry for your loss.
