"Dan was the most genuine, humble, and kind person I have ever met. I first met him at church (St. John’s KUMC) and right away sensed the amount of humility he had, despite all the talent God has given him. He never cared for being “cool” and didn’t have a mean bone in his body. During fellowship time, he would make it a point to go and talk to those who were standing by themselves or looked uncomfortable. He really was that genuinely good, and a pure, kind hearted man."
