I am very sad to hear of Dan’s passing. He was a good friend and confidant. We met in college, became roommates then life long friends. Through many canoe trips, ski trips and visits my wife and children knew Dan well. He will hold a special place in all of our hearts.

Very sad to hear about Dan passing away. He really helped me get on my feet when I was just out of college. We were roomates for 7 years and shared many fun times. I especially remember during a Boundary Waters trip when I dropped a coffee pot into the lake, he suprised us all by throwing on a wet diving suit and jumping in the lake to retrieve the coffe pot. Saving the trip for all the coffee drinkers. Going to miss you Dan. Our thoughts and prayers are for your family. Jerry and Connie

I was deeply saddened to hear of Dan’s passing and offer my condolences to his family. Dan and I met working together at Southwestern Bell Telephone in the early 80’s and have been friends ever since. Fun memories of Cardinal games, cars, boats, canoe trips, golf and so much more. He was fun and a great friend. He will be sorely missed.

I am so saddened to hear of Dan's passing and offer his family and friends my deepest condolences. I met Dan in the most unusual of circumstances, as he started as my tenant in NC and turned into a dear friend. All these years later, he was still a special part of my life who I kept in close contact with. He will be missed so much.

So sorry to hear of Dan's passing. We worked together at AT&T for several years and I was always glad to be paired with him during work projects. He was a great guy that made long work days tolerable. He will be missed.

So very sorry to hear about Dan. I spent so many afternoons and evenings running with the Jansen boys.in my grade school days. I credit them with my being such a tomboy. They were wonderful neighbors. My heartfelt condolences to the entire family.
