I worked with Dan at Alcoa for a number of years.  I remember one time when I walked into his office and he asked me if I knew anyone that wanted kittens.  It happened that I had been thinking of getting a couple of kittens and I told him I was interested.  That night I had 2 kittens.  I will always remember this time and event with happiness.

My sympathy to Dan's Family during  this tough time.   Dan was a very fine Sr Systems Analyst at Alcoa, very well respected by all.   I knew Dan for many years at Alcoa and had the priviledge of working closely with him before my retirement in 2002.    Rest in Peace Dan.
