He may not be with us anymore, but the vast amount of his shared wisdom and passion continues to bring us joy.

Often when seeing pictures of his substantial collection of audio gear that he cherished so much I wonder where it all ended up.
Dan is enjoying the things and is surrounded by those he loved the most. He touched many with his kind and caring nature and continues to bring a smile and a warm feeling every time we come across one his posts. His spirit is forever with us, intertwined into the very fabric of AA.

Whenever I switch on my McIntosh C2300 & see the Tubes glowing that Dan recommended to me, I think of him.

So that's "Every Day!"

I was looking at some NOS Australian made 12AX7's for sale & thought ' what would Dan think of these' Then it hit me again that he is gone.

I still dont know how a man I had never met in person had such a positive influence on me?

Dan made us all better people/forum members. He was resolute to honest input and did not suffer fools. We all miss him.

My deepest Condolences to Dan's family and friends. Tremendous loss!!

I have been wondering about about Dan since I did not see any new comments from him.
He shared his knowledge and took the time to advise us with kindness and professionalism regardless of our history or expertise level in this forum.

I hope that if God took him to heaven was to save him from pain and suffering. He will be missed.

Dan R.I.P

For those of us who only knew Dan from a distance, it was easy to see him shine a bright light upon the many many people around him. This is heavy and sad news. Extending thoughts from my family to his.

I have been off the forum for some time only to find of Dan's Passing. I am truly sadden, he was always kind and took pleasure in sharing his experience and helping people with their audio questions. He was a wealth of knowledge and he always was helpful and kind to me. May he RIP, God Bless!
