Over the years Dan was both a good friend and mentor. I met Dan in the early '60s when he started working as a CPA in downtown Portland. We were introduced by Don Hodgson, Dans friend from high school and my friend from PSU.
There are several remembrances of playing pool. I remember when Dan bought the house from Lloyd DuBois. They agreed on the house price quickly, but it took several days to determine the price for the pool table. ( and yes, if you got the ball close to the rail on the NE side of the table it would roll to that pocket).
All that knew Dan knew he was the quiet one. On one ski trip to Sun Valley three of us were in the lodge bar. Dan on the right, Pat Richardson in the middle and me, Pat (not the quiet one) reached behind Dans back and patted the girl on the next stool on the behind.
She turned to Dan and said "I like your style". Dan had no idea what had happened.
Its hard to loose a very good friend. Over the years we've skied around the NW, lunched and dined with together and in groups. Dan will be missed.
