    Condolences to the family. Dan and I
    would discuss music and other
    topics. A fine, cultured gentleman.

    I worked with Danny in his office in Johnston, RI with his Apple MacBook Pro near Coffees Brewering. He was addicted to tuna fish salad sandwichs when we went to lunch and ordered the same for Mary and me. A post world war 2 veteran, he told me he delighted in throwing American dollars at the kids in occupied Japan in 1947.
    Dan was a hard charging salesman with loyal customers demanding his printing services. His pride was building the Jewish congregation at Chabad in Warwick, RI. We counted on Daniel to make a million at Saturday morning services. His rainbow colored ties was his trademark. We will miss him!

    Dear Gerry, Alan and Lisa,
    I was so very sorry to learn of Dan’s passing. Over the years I’ve attempted to get in touch with you.
    Would any one or all of you please get in touch with me — or Cindy?
    Need to talk and to stay in touch.
    Loved you all,

Leave a Condolence
