We learned many things from Dad. Here are our favourites. Go for a drive, preferably with your arm out the window. Stop for a coffee and a chat, meet friends and make new ones. Enjoy an adventure.

What I will remember most about Dan is his generosity! Generous with his time, generous with his wisdom, generous with his smile and most of all, generous with his sincere hugs. I have had the pleasure of knowing Dan for over 20 years (and at times working with him), and even when I did not see him for a long time, he always greeted me like it was only yesterday. I will miss his kind and gentle nature, his amazing wit, and unbelievable story telling. His impact, legacy and his loss will be felt by many. My heart goes out to Connie and family.
