We will deeply miss Dan. We had alot of great times doing our road trips from San Diego to Denver-he was great company . Those spring training trips were always a fun time, and Las Vegas was always an adventure. He had a soft spot for our dog Willie, that is just how Dan was. Our heart goes out to Christina, Mary , and his family. He touched many lives.

I met Dan through Mary and that term “Gently Giant” just keeps coming up to describe him. When I think of Dan I remember his humor, kindness & such strong love for his family and friends! He would do anything to help someone. The thing that stands out the most to me about Dan was that he gave great, wonderful, heartfelt hugs. On one of my trips to San Diego I hadn't had a chance to see Dan to say goodbye the last day. I was flying on Alaska and was sitting in my seat on the plane as the plane continued to load and here comes Dan (standing heads above everyone) in uniform, coming on the plane to give me a big hug and say goodbye! He always let you know that he cared and was happy to see you.

Christina, Mary, and all of Dan's family & friends, I'm so sorry for your loss. It's so very hard to lose someone you love, especially when they are taken from you so young and so fast. The hurt never goes away and missing them never stops. I take comfort in the belief that I will see all those I've loved and lost again someday. Time can take away the sharp edge of the pain and wonderful memories will keep them in our hearts until we meet again.

Love and prayers to all of you,

I can't get you off my mind. Did I do enough?...no....you can never do enough. When we spent 10 days together,here in Vegas, your hip was killing you, I would have whinned(cried) like a little baby, but not you. You were tough, a Man's Man....as they say. You made me a better Man, Danny! Thankyou!

Danny called me 'Mom', I was so touched. We so looked forward to his visits here & my visits to S.D. There was a binding love between him & our son Steve for which we were so thankful. We are grateful for having known him & shall miss him terribly. Our only consolation is knowing he is at peace & in the safe hands of our Lord.
My husband & I extend our blessings to the loving family he leaves.

To Danny's family, Steve, and friends, I want to express sincere condolences in the passing of your loved one Danny. I only knew Danny for a few years but he was always kind and gentle. He was surely a true friend to his brother Steve. I know all will miss him and especially Steve as they talked every day and I mean daily! Steve, may I suggest that you just keep praying for Danny and God will pass on the message to him. Danny was a fighter till the end and his reward was his place in Heaven. May we all live our lives so that when we are called home that we will all be reunited. Blessings to you Danny you have earned your wings! God Bless!

Dans family and friends
I am so sorry to hear about Dan. I became his friend through my niece Mary Anderson. He was truely a caring person. He was right there wanting to do anything he could when my wife died and this is when he was having many medical problems of his own. He had a zest for life that surely energized me. I will miss him.

woke up today and wanted to call you, needed to talk to you, like we've done all these years. looked at my cell phone, and realized that I would never deleate(or replace) speed dial 4(your cell) and 5(your home), since Mom and Dad are speed dials 2 and 3. Thers a big chunck out of my heart right now, and it dosn't feel like it will ever heal. I love you DAN!

To the Alagna Family,
I have known Dan since 1984, he was my first friend I met at United. Dan and I shared some fun times together at work and outside of work. I will always remember him as the gentle giant with a heart of gold. Dan and I had some heated disagreements at times, but he always, in his own way, would let you know he did not have a grudge. I will miss Danny!
